Chicken with gravy is a popular, flavorful dish. Chicken has a high protein content, all the essential amino acids, and fewer carbohydrates. Hence, it does not affect blood glucose levels significantly. Proteins take longer than carbohydrates to digest and promote satiety while managing the glucose curve. However, if gravy contains ingredients rich in carbohydrates and sugar, this dish can increase your blood sugar levels.

Optimise the consumption of chicken gravy
• To make it a complete meal, consider pairing the chicken with a small portion of salad and complex carbohydrates like brown rice, whole wheat bread or lentils.
• You may choose ingredients with no sugar and fat for the gravy.
• Try to control portion size and consume at least 100 grams of chicken per meal, depending on your daily protein requirements.

Chicken can meet all your protein requirements if consumed in adequate quantity. It will help you stay full for longer as it is slowly digested. These factors make chicken a suitable option for maintaining your blood glucose levels. By adjusting the gravy and the overall meal, you can consume chicken gravy as part of a balanced diet.
