T2D Baked Chicken with Bacon and Yoghurt Sauce Recipe

Type 2 Diabetes Baked Chicken with Bacon and Yoghurt Sauce

Servings 6 people


  • 8 pieces chicken with skin on I used drum sticks and thighs. I think the drum sticks worked better with this recipe. If you are only using drum sticks, the recipe requires 16 pieces
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • salt to taste
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp garlic crushed
  • 6 rashes bacon chopped in to, approximately, 1 cm squares
  • 125 ml dry white wine you can substitute with white wine vinegar
  • 30 ml dijon mustard/wholegrain mustard
  • 250 ml double cream yoghurt


  • Preheat oven to 200*C
  • In a heavy bottom sauce pan, heat 1 tbsp oil and brown the chicken pieces in batches, remove from the heat, sprinkle with a little salt and place in an oven proof dish
  • In the same pan, heat the remaining oil, bacon until crispy
  • Add the onions and garlic and fry until the onions are soft
  • Add the wine and reduce by half
  • Stir in the mustard and then the yoghurt and heat through
  • Pour the mixture over chicken
  • Bake the chicken for 40 min.


Serve with stir fried green beans with the bacon and yoghurt sauce as a gravy.
