Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. chicken thighs
  • 2 tbsps oil
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsps. purpose flour OPTIONAL, for non-keto diets.
  • ½ lemon for rubbing the chicken

Mushroom Cream Sauce

  • 8 oz. baby bella mushrooms sliced
  • 3 tbsps butter
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp. fresh oregano leaves optional
  • 1 tbsp. black pepper fresh ground
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup chicken stock or water
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese OPTIONAL for topping

Instructions

  • Trim the chicken thighs and rub with half a lemon. Pat dry and pan sear with the oil for 5-6 minutes on each side on medium heat. Transfer to a bowl and cover with alluminum foil wrap
  • In the same skillet, add the sliced mushrooms, garlic and butter. Saute the mushrooms until they are tender, about 3 minutes.
  • Add in the heave creamy, water, spices, salt and water or stock. Mix and cover to simmer on low for a couple of minutes until the sauce thickens up a little.
  • Add in the fresh oregano, chicken pieces and drench them with the sauce and cover to cook with the sauce for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and serve. Garnish with some fresh oregano leaves and pamesan cheese if prefered.

Notes

  • You can use any type of chicken part you prefer. If you like to stick with the leaner parts, feel free to use chicken breasts or tenders.
  • The chicken can be skinless but I sometimes just leave the skin on to help keep the chicken moist. 
  • Make sure to trim the chicken of any excess fat.
  • The flour is not required but recommended if you like the chicken to have a little crunch on the outside.
  • Add more cook time for chicken with bones and chicken breasts.
  • For an extra kick, add some dijon - or whole grain - mustard to the sauce.
  • Garnish with some fresh herbs - like oregano or parsley - and add some grated Parmesan, if you like.
