Chicken ... in a pan with mushrooms and parmesan : Low Carb
Chicken has many plus points - its versatility, as well as the ease and speed with which it can be cooked - make it one of the most popular meats around. It has a high level of good quality protein, as well as B vitamins, iron, copper and selenium.
This blog has many chicken recipe suggestions, and below you can see another one! Well you can't have too many can you! It's rich, creamy, full of mushrooms and tastes great! Why not serve with a fresh side salad or steamed low carb vegetables like broccoli, spinach, or asparagus … yum!
6g net carbs per serving
2 tbsp. avocado oil or olive oil 1½ lbs (650g) boneless chicken thighs salt and pepper 8 oz.(225g) baby bella mushrooms, sliced 4 garlic cloves, minced 1½ cups (350ml) heavy (double) whipping cream 2 oz. (50g) parmesan cheese, grated
1 tsp fresh parsley
While chicken thighs are flavourful and satiating because of their higher fat content, feel free to make the dish with chicken breasts (preferably skin on) or chicken drumsticks, or a mix of both. You can also substitute pork chops or slices of pork tenderloin.
Baby bella mushrooms are another name for Italian Portobello mushrooms. Known officially by the Mushroom Council as portabella mushrooms, baby bellas are cremini mushrooms that have been allowed to mature for up to seven days longer than commercial creminis. Baby bellas are low-fat, cholesterol-free and a rich source of essential vitamins and minerals that can enhance your health and help prevent disease. These nutrients include selenium, niacin, copper and pantothenic acid. In season between December and March, baby bellas have an intense, meat-like flavour when cooked. Try them roasted, broiled, grilled or sautéed.
