Grilled Chicken in a Creamy Mushroom Sauce

A Keto grilled chicken with awesomesauce!

I had a bunch of chicken breasts lying in my freezer so I decided to make a nice pan grilled chicken and a delicious creamy and cheesy mushroom sauce to go with it, flavoured with thyme. This recipe is quick, easy and perfect to make when you are home alone or dining solo. It takes less than 15 minutes to make and there is almost no prep as well. Enjoy this meal for one!

It’s a technique more than a recipe

This is really all about just using basic cooking techniques to make simple and delicious food. This entire recipe can be turned around to suit what you have lying in the fridge. Instead of chicken you can swap the protein for beef, pork or fish. If you are a vegetarian, paneer is your friend or even eggplant. The whole idea is to pan fry the protein and deglaze the pan to create a sauce. It’s a pretty simple process. You can use any herbs you like. I would use rosemary if I was making this dish with beef or perhaps some tarragon if I was using fish. I’d love to hear what you created using this recipe as your template. Leave me a comment and let me know.

Pay attention to the cream

If you live in India and have decided to use Amul cream keep in mind that when heated it can split. So turn off the heat and add the cream like I did in the video. If you live in American or the UK or anywhere else, chances are you will use heavy cream or double cream. These are far more ‘fluid’ in consistency and can be heated so feel free to add it to your dish and reduce the sauce down till it’s the consistency you want.
