Great dinner last night..

16 Oct

I decided I really should try a recipe from my last post. Low-Carb Chicken Breasts with Fresh Sage and Mushrooms.  It was so good and so worth a little extra effort.

I served it with fresh steamed broccoli with butter and a big green salad. The sauce was so good I wanted to lick the plate! Not sure I am a huge fan of fresh sage so I used it sparingly.

Below are a few pictures taken during preparation. I find putting chicken breasts in a zip lock bag before flattening with meat mallet saves a big mess. I also prepare all the sauce ingredients ahead of time, then making the sauce was a breeze.

Goat cheese~makes everything taste good

15 Sep

I use goat cheese a lot.  Great to nibble on with peppers for a snack and even better to bake with. Melted goat cheese is delicious. Here is a recipe I have made many times. It is quick to put together and gets rave reviews.  I remember reading in  Anthony Bourdain’s book, Kitchen Confidential that cooking with shallots is what the pros do and food always tastes better.  He said it makes you look like you know what your doing, or something to that effect. So I cook with shallots frequently!

Roasted Chicken Breasts with Goat Cheese– 2 servings

2 split chicken breasts-bone in, skin on

2.5 ounces goat cheese  (plain or fine herb)  1 Carb per ounce

1 T. chopped fresh rosemary (may use dried)

1 small shallot finely chopped

Olive oil, salt and pepper

In small skillet heat olive oil over medium heat and gently saute shallots until soft (2 minutes or so) add rosemary and stir around.  Slice up goat cheese and add to pan. As it starts to melt, take off heat. Gently stir around and let cheese melt.

Wash and dry chicken breasts.  Set on small roasting pan. Lift skin and divide cheese mixture equally between each piece of chicken. I use a soup spoon to do this. Rub olive oil lightly over the breasts and sprinkle with freshly ground pepper and sea salt.

Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes or until done.
