Description

This Keto Chicken Dijon with Mushrooms and Artichokes is the perfect budget friendly dinner. Juicy chicken breast, with a creamy mustard sauce, briny artichokes and tender mushrooms. With minimal ingredients and less than 30 minutes to prepare, it is perfect for those busy weeknights or even for meal prep.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into tender sized pieces (I get my organic, pasture raised chicken here)
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 can of quartered artichoke hearts
  • 6 ounces cremini mushrooms, halved
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon granules (get it here)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • a few sprigs Italian flat feaf parsley, chopped

Instructions

  1. Season both sides of the chicken breasts generously with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the pan and sear until it is golden brown on both sides
  3. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside (chicken may not be fully cooked at this stage)
  4. Deglaze the pan with chicken stock and use a rubber spatula to scrape off and mix in any bits that are stuck to the bottom of the pan.
  5. To the chicken stock, mix in the bouillon granules and tarragon until dissolved. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 5 minutes
  6. Add the heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, Dijon mustard, mushrooms and artichokes and bring to a bowl, then reduce to simmer. Let simmer for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced by 1/2 and thickened.
  7. Add the chicken back to the pan and let simmer until the chicken is cooked all the way through, about 5 to 8 minutes.
  8. Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.

Notes

  • net carbs per serving: 4.2g
  • I often use cream, cheese, and reduction to thicken my sauces. Heavy cream and cheese will add some body to the sauce, and then a long sauté to reduce the sauce will further thicken it.
  • To make this dairy free, substitute full fat coconut milk for the heavy cream and omit the parmesan cheese. To maintain that Parmesan cheese flavor, you can add a little nutritional yeast.
