Keto Chili Chicken Breasts w Shitake Mushrooms

5 ratings

This simple 2-component dish is great for meal prepping or a simple skillet-style lunch. Chicken breasts are seasoned with a blend of savory and asian-inspired spices before being sliced into pieces that are crisp on the outside and juicy on the inside. Paired on the side is a bed of sticky-sweet shitake mushrooms.

    Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat and place in the chicken breasts, seasoned side down. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side, until the seasonings blacken and the breasts are golden brown on both sides.

    Stir in the soy sauce. Cook for an additional 2 minutes, letting the sauce reduce and turn into a sticky glaze that coats the mushrooms.

    120 grams of chicken breast alone has 37grms of protein. So yes - macros are completely wrong. Absolutely delicious though. Yes - less ginger in the mushrooms agreed.

          Good, nice change from creamy / cheesy dinners. Mixed the shiitake with green beans to get more side dish, added garlic and a little sweetener to get a good ‘glaze’. Then made a little sriracha Mayo for the chicken because I like a sauce. Yum!

            Tastes really good ... But ginger should be less
