Chicken Breast With Herb Butter : Simply Delicious


There are some days when it seems 24 hours just isn't enough, and I'm sure you may have experienced days like this! So after you have somehow managed to do all your chores, or 'juggled' any meetings, gatherings, perhaps school runs etc that you needed to do, the last thing you may now want is to spend a lot of time over a meal. 

If you may have days like this, or just simply want a tasty but quick and nutritious meal, may I suggest this plate of lovely food. It's just perfect when things need to be easy and quick and when you don't have much time. Here's a delicious and filling LCHF meal that doesn't require a lot of preparation.

Ingredients:
4 servings

4 chicken breasts, about 1½ lbs (650 g)
2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
6 oz. (160 g) herb butter
Salt and pepper


This recipe idea is from Anne Aobadia, see it with full instructions here

All the best Jan

That looks delicious. I think simple food is often the best.

Oh yes. The times I say, wish there were more hours in the day. The evenings can be stressful getting after school clubs, homework, bed-time sorted so an easy meal is a godsend.

Thanks

So happy to see people using butter! We were "sold a bill of goods," about butter, for too long! :-)))))

This type of meal is simple and tasty, and of course may be served with a salad or if you prefer some cooked vegetables ... like broccoli.

Sometimes simple is good.

Hope you have a great week

I also think chicken is a good family favourite and that helps too!
Hope today has been a good one for you, and all good wishes for the week ahead.

Butter is definitely best. I shudder when I think how we were buying those soft spreads! But we all thought it was the right thing to do - how wrong we were - and now of course the good health news about butter is spreading ... and boy doesn't it taste good too!

Hope the new week ahead is a good one for you.

All the best Jan

That looks wonderful Jan, thank you very much. I have company coming in April. My brother-in-law from Germany and I know this is just the sort of recipe he would enjoy.
