Chicken Dinner Tonight : Creamy Garlic Mushroom Chicken : Low Carb


Don't you just love chicken, we do! There are many recipe suggestions available and this one is a favourite! 

As you may know 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 recipe suggestion is for creamy low carb / keto chicken with butter-fried mushrooms, garlic, parmesan and herbs. Just serve with a simple green salad or a side dish of your choice.

Ingredients
Serves Four
6g carbs per serving
4 tbsp butter
3 garlic cloves, minced
½ lb (225g) mushrooms, roughly chopped
1½ lbs (650g) boneless chicken thighs
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried thyme
½ tsp dried rosemary
salt and pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
1¼ cups (300ml) heavy whipping cream or crème fraîche
2 oz. (50g) parmesan cheese, grated
Serving
5 oz. (150g) leafy greens
Tip
In this recipe boneless, skinless chicken thigh fillets were used, which are slightly fattier and tastier than chicken breast. You can of course also use bone-in thighs with or without skin, chicken breast, turkey, pork fillet or pork chops. Adjust the cooking time accordingly. If using chicken thighs with skin, fry until skin is crispy and inside cooked.

Garlic is a member of the onion family, which also includes leeks and shallots. When picking out garlic at the grocery store, select firm, tight, heavy, dry bulbs.

Garlic has been used medicinally since the Greek and Roman times. Today garlic is a widely recognized health enhancing supplement. It promotes the well-being of the heart and immune systems with antioxidant properties and helps maintain healthy blood circulation. One of garlic’s greatest health benefits includes the ability to enhance the body’s immune cell activity.

Thanks for the recipe as chicken thighs are a favorite in our meal planning. In fact, they were our dinner last night, oven roasted with peppers and onions and a side of roasted potatoes.
