Is three a good number for you ?
Is three a good number for you ? Yes ...... then I'm sure you will like this tasty, low carb - Chicken with Mushrooms recipe.
Yes, it really has just three carbs per serving, and although it has already featured on the blog some months back now, I really thought it was worth re-posting. Make it with chicken thighs for that bit of extra flavour and juiciness, simply add bacon, peas and a parsley sauce........it tastes good.
Ingredients - Serves Four
2 tbsp olive oil
500g boneless, skinless chicken thighs
a little flour, for dusting
50g cubetti di pancetta
300g small button mushrooms
2 large shallots, chopped
250ml chicken stock
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
50g frozen peas
small handful parsley, finely chopped
1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan. Season and dust the chicken with flour, brown on all sides. Remove. Fry the pancetta and mushrooms until softened, then remove.
2. Add the final tbsp oil and cook shallots for 5 mins. Add the stock and vinegar, bubble for 1-2 mins. Return the chicken, pancetta and mushrooms and cook for 15 mins. Add the peas and parsley and cook for 2 mins more, then serve.
Tastes great served with a mix of cauliflower and broccoli florets. Or buttery mashed swede.
Chicken is reasonably priced and makes a great low carb meal ... enjoy
