Keto Chicken Stroganoff with Zoodles
- 350 grams of chicken breast, thinly sliced
- Pinch of salt
- 2 teaspoons of paprika 2 teaspoons of garlic powder
- 1 red onion, sliced
- A handful of pickles, sliced
- 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup of heavy cream
- 300g champignons mushrooms
- Pinch of salt and pepper to taste
- Half a cup of milk
- Fresh cilantro for garnish
- 1-2 zucchini (for the zoodles)
- Seasoning the Chicken: place the thinly sliced chicken breast in a bowl. Sprinkle a pinch of salt, 2 teaspoons of paprika, and 2 teaspoons of garlic powder over the chicken. Mix well until each piece of chicken is coated with the spices.
- Sautéing the Aromatics: heat a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the sliced red onion and pickles to the pan. Stir occasionally until the onion and pickles become soft and golden. Set them aside for now.
- Searing and Simmering the Chicken: return to the pan, now at medium heat, and add a bit more olive oil. Place the seasoned chicken in the pan and stir-fry for about 8 minutes, or until it’s almost cooked through.
- Combining the Flavors: add the sautéed onion and pickles back into the pan with the chicken. Mix everything well, ensuring the flavors meld together. Add the mushrooms. Pour in the heavy cream and stir to create a rich and creamy sauce. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.
- Bringing It All Together: pour in half a cup of milk and let the ingredients simmer for a few minutes, allowing the sauce to thicken. Adjust the seasoning if needed.
- Plating and Garnishing: place a generous serving of zoodles on a plate. Top the zoodles with the creamy chicken stroganoff mixture. Garnish with fresh cilantro for an extra burst of freshness.
