Garlic chicken is an excellent source of protein and has little carbohydrates. Chicken, especially when consumed without the skin, is a lean protein source with a low glycemic index, meaning it is less likely to cause a spike in blood sugar levels. Some studies also suggest that garlic may benefit glucose regulation, reducing the risk of glucose spikes.

Enjoy your Garlic Chicken Without Worrying about Glucose Levels
• Consider having garlic chicken with carb-rich vegetables like sweet potato or a small portion of complex carbohydrates, such as quinoa, oats or brown rice, to control the glucose levels and not let them drop.
• You may also pair them with a whole wheat tortilla or roti.
• Make sure you portion control your carb intake.
• Use fresh garlic as a seasoning instead of opting for garlic-flavoured processed foods that may contain added sugars and industrialised salts.

The impact of garlic chicken on blood sugar levels can vary depending on the individual consumption and their overall dietary pattern. Since the carbohydrate content is low, it can take some time for them to be metabolised and used by the body for energy, resulting in hypoglycemia. Tweak the way you consume your garlic chicken to manage those glucose levels.
