Chicken is usually not going to affect blood sugar. However, I'd go with skinless chicken breast, which is the lowest fat content. Thighs and legs and other chicken parts are higher fat.
Don't cook it in any oil or anything. I usually just boil it when I do it for my dog.

I used to boil chicken breasts and shred it to add to Lucy’s dry food to get her to eat it. Now I do ground turkey instead, but same idea. The smallest bit of meat in her dry food gets her to eat it all and promptly. I do weigh it out every feeding and calculate the calories just to make sure she’s getting the same amount though.
