Seared Chicken Breast with Creamy Mushroom & Asparagus Sauce...


The only way this can be "healthy" is if you eat as is. It is rich and creamy, yet very low in carbs and it kept me full for hours. I promise i did not sneak in any rice or potatoes (it would pair amazingly with both), i was tempted, but i didn't.

Here is what you'll need for a meal for 2;

2 Chicken Breast or 1 Large one

1 Cup Full Cream or Whipping Cream

1/4 Onion - Chopped

1 Cup Mushrooms - Sliced

Asparagus

1/2 Cup Arrow Root/Flour/Bread Crumbs

1/4 Cup Grated Parmesan/Asiago Cheese

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil/Vegetable Oil

1 Egg

Seasoning

Put chicken breast in a ziplock bag or on a chopping board and cover with wax paper, then beat if gently with a rolling pin till you have flattened it out.

Season both sides with salt, pepper. I used a spicy seasoning mix.

Set your your coating assembly line.

In a shallow bowl beat 2 eggs and and in another bowl mix arrow root/flour/breadcrumbs with a pinch of salt, pepper, powdered garlic and powdered ginger. Seasoned breading flour means tastier chicken.

For those who don't know, breading locks in moisture of your chicken and provides a nice crust after you bake or fry. Arrow Root is a healthier option to flour and I've found that it gives a better crust.

Coat your chicken breast with the eggs then transfer to the bowl with flour and coat both sides then set aside. Allow to rest for about 5 minutes so that the crust dries a little.

Tip - Always keep a portion of your flour mix aside to properly coat or dab on some areas that may still be too wet.

Put 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a hot pan and sear both sides of your chicken breast for 3 minutes each and set aside. If your chicken breast is thick and isn't cooked through, you can pop it into the oven at 350F for 7 - 10 minutes and that should take care of it.

Take the chicken out, add remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil, chopped onion, mushrooms and asparagus. Season with salt, pepper, 1 seasoning cube and a pinch of powdered garlic. Stir fry for 2 minutes.

Pour in double cream and allow to simmer until it has reduced by about a third.

Add grated cheese and allow to simmer for another minute.

Plate with chicken and serve by itself or with potatoes or rice.

Isn't she lovely?
