Insulin Resistance Diet Recipes:

Slow Cooked Chicken & Salsa


  • 16 oz. salsa of your choice
  • 1 package of taco seasoning
  • 5 chicken breasts



Begin by trimming the fat from the chicken, and then place it in the crockpot. Sprinkle the taco seasoning on top and cover the chicken with salsa. Allow the chicken to cook in the crockpot on low for 6 to 8 hours.

Classic Salmon and Asparagus


  • 1 cup reduced-sodium vegetable broth
  • 4 tbsp. dry white wine
  • 4 skinless salmon fillets
  • 2 thinly sliced leeks
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas
  • 8 oz. asparagus spears
  • Salt and pepper



To begin, ensure there are no stray bones in the salmon by running your fingertips over each fillet. If there are any, pull them out. Coat the inside of your Dutch oven with cooking spray, and then arrange the leeks in a single layer on the bottom. Lay the salmon fillets on top of these and surround them with the asparagus and peas. Pour the wine and the broth over the top, and season them lightly with salt and pepper.

Next, place the Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Bring the broth to a boil before covering it with a tight-fitting lid. Reduce the heat to low. Continue to cook for 12 to 14 minutes or until the salmon is a pale pink. The vegetables should also be tinder. Serve immediately.
