Three Lower Carb Recipe Choices : Chicken or Pork or Vegan Option
Chicken Thighs Pan Roasted with a Chive Cream Sauce
I just don't think you can beat chicken, and in particular chicken thighs.
This is such a tasty recipe idea - could be a mid-week hit - see what you think.
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Butter
1 1/4 to 1 1/2 Pounds Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
1/3 Cup Finely Chopped Yellow (white) Onion
1/4 Cup Dry White Wine (use whatever white wine you enjoy drinking for this, a chardonnay is nice)
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 Cup Chicken Stock
1/2 Cup Heavy (double) Cream
1/4 Cup Chopped Fresh Chives
(Kosher) Salt + Black Pepper
Pork Loin Steaks with Mozzarella Cheese
I do like to include Pork in my weekly menu plans.
With so many ways to cook and enjoy it, it's a winner.
How about this recipe suggestion.
4 lean thick pork loin steaks (about 2cm (1in) thickness)
50g (2oz) mozzarella cheese or similar, thickly sliced into 4
8 fresh sage leaves
4 slices Parma style ham or streaky bacon
salt and ground black pepper
Swede/Rutabaga Mash-Pot with Greens, Mushrooms and Tempeh
For those who prefer a meatless meal.
How about this colourful plate of food.
Have a look at the recipe, you may like to give it a try.
300-400 gram swede/rutabaga or cauliflower, chopped
a few tablespoons of unsweetened plant milk or cooking cream
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons oil, separated
