If you’re participating in the 5-Day No Sugar Challenge, then you may be scratching your head about ways you can curb sweet cravings. One of my favorite seasonings to incorporate in sweet recipes is cinnamon; however, it can also be used to enhance savory dishes as well. Cinnamon has been known to help lower blood sugar, bad cholesterol and even triglycerides for individuals with type 2 diabetes.

So, this chicken will satisfy your appetite while also curbing your sweet tooth!
