Low Carb Chicken a la King
« on: June 28, 2010, 07:53:31 PM »
I made this dish last night and it turned out pretty good! I think it must make about 6 servings, though. You may want to cut back on the amounts if you don't need that much. I put mine over cauli rice.

Ingredients:

    2 cups cooked chicken or turkey
     cup chopped onion
    1 small green pepper, chopped (about 3 oz)
    1 small can of mushrooms or 4 to 6 oz fresh chopped mushrooms
    2 Tablespoons oil or butter
     teaspoon black pepper
    1-2 teaspoons xanthan gum to thicken
    1 cup unsweetened almond milk
     cup cream
    1 cups chicken stock, or water with chicken Better than Bouillon or regular bouillon
    1 4 oz jar chopped pimentos
    Salt if not using bouillon

Preparation:

1) Heat the oil or butter and saute' the onion for 2-3 minutes. Add the green pepper and mushrooms, and cook until softening. Add black pepper.


2) Add liquids. Add xanthan gum, and any flavorings such as Better than Bouillon. Add salt if needed. Bring to a simmer and cook for 3-4 minutes.

3) Add chicken/turkey and pimento. Heat through.

Serve over caulirice

Thinking of making this for tonight's dinner. What could I substitute for the almond milk?

If it were me and I didn't have the almond milk I would just use a thinned down heavy whipping cream.  Like maybe 1/4 cream and 3/4 water or chicken stock.   You just want the same amount of liquid  ;)
