    Dijon Chicken With Mushrooms

    Post by Jan1 on Fri Feb 06 2015, 14:04


    This mustard chicken dish is great for an easy dinner party, and served with cauliflower rice or a simple green salad. Approx 4g carbs per serving.

    Ingredients - Serves 4

    4 chicken breasts skin on
    200g mushrooms sliced
    1 garlic clove crushed
    1 onion sliced
    3 tbsp dijon mustard
    1 tbsp fresh tarragon, chopped
    500ml white wine
    A splash of brandy

    Method

    1. In a pan, heat a glug of olive oil. Season 4 chicken breasts, then fry, skin-side down, until golden. Turn over and sear, then set aside.
    2. Fry 200g mushrooms, sliced, in the same pan until golden. Add 1 garlic clove, crushed, and 1 onion, sliced, then cook until soft.
    3. Stir in 3 tbsp Dijon mustard and 1 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon.
    4. Add 500ml white wine and a splash of brandy, then bubble for 2 minutes.
    5. Add the chicken, skin-side up, cover and simmer for 10 minutes
    6. Cook, uncovered, for 15 minutes, stirring now and then.
    7. Garnish with fresh tarragon.

    This lovely meal can be served with cauliflower rice, or perhaps a simple green salad. A delicious tasting low carb meal. A chilled glass of white wine - optional.

    ...And to think some folks say low carb is restrictive! Utter nonsense when you get to eat delicious food like that which is worthy of being served in the finest restaurants IMO Very Happy

    Thanks Paul ...... if I had my own LCHF Restaurant this would certainly be on the menu. With perhaps some delicious low carb fruits and double cream for dessert - blueberries and raspberries would be nice  Smile
