KETO CHICKEN MUSHROOM INGREDIENTS: HOW TO MAKE
For this simple one-pan chicken and mushroom dish, only a few basic ingredients are required.
chicken breasts or chicken tenderloin (you could also use skinless chicken thighs if you prefer)
Mushrooms of any kind—we chose Baby Bella, white, or cremini mushrooms, but shiitake mushrooms would also be a fantastic choice.
Olive or avocado oil and butter
Cumin and black pepper
Also known as double cream, heavy cream, or heavy whipping cream. The sauce might not thicken as much if you use Half & Half or light cream, so be careful to add more xanthan gum to thicken, around a teaspoon.
We used organic chicken bone broth instead of chicken stock or broth.
It will also work with sour cream, full-fat yoghurt, or even dairy-free yoghurt.
In a large, heavy skillet or frying pan, heat half the butter and half the olive oil over medium-high heat.
The chicken tenders should be seasoned before being seared in batches until both sides are browned.
Take out of skillet and place aside. The mushrooms should be cooked in the remaining butter and oil in the skillet until they are crispy and browned.
Deglaze the pan by adding the garlic, herbs, and chicken stock and scraping up all of the tasty bits from the bottom.
Once the sauce begins to thicken, stir in the cream and sour cream. Never boil cream because it can split.
Toss the sauce with the tenderloins in the pan one more.
Cook the chicken for a further five minutes.
If preferred, garnish the dish with freshly chopped parsley and grated Parmesan cheese.
CAN I MAKE THIS DAIRY-FREE LOW-CARB CHICKEN RECIPE?
The creamy sauce can indeed be made dairy-free. The only adjustments required are to swap out the heavy cream with coconut milk and the regular sour cream for a dairy-free version.

KETO CHICKEN MUSHROOM CASSEROLE STORAGE
For up to five days, keep covered in the refrigerator with an airtight container.
After it has been cooked and has cooled, you can also freeze this. To make it easier to thaw your dish the night before for a quick lunch the next day, I’d advise freezing it in individual pieces.
