This is an easy low-carb meal for everyday cooking. You'll only need a few common ingredients, most of which you'll likely have at home. If you double the batch, this keto dinner recipe is great for meal prep too.

You can serve this creamy mushroom chicken skillet without any sides or you can use more mushrooms. It will also go well with zucchini noodles (here's how to prepare zucchini noodles), or shirataki noodles for a lower carb option (here's how to prepare shirataki noodles). Enjoy!

Ingredients (makes 2 servings)

  • 2 medium skinless chicken breasts (400 g/ 14.1 oz)
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 tbsp ghee or avocado oil (45 ml)
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced (70 g/ 2.5 oz)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups sliced brown mushrooms (144 g/ 5 oz)
  • 1/2 cup creme fraiche or sour cream (120 g/ 4.2 oz)
  • 3/4 cups chicken stock or bone broth (180 ml/ 6 fl oz)
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped herbs such as parsley, thyme, basil, and/or chives)
  • Optional: serve with zucchini noodles - here's how to prepare them

Instructions

  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper from both sides. If the breasts are too thick, flatten the thickest parts with a mallet.
  2. Grease a skillet with 1 tbsp of ghee or avocado oil. Add the chicken breasts and cook on medium-high for about 5 minutes without moving, or until golden brown.
  3. Flip on the other side, cook for about a minute, and then reduce the heat to medium. Cover with a lid and cook for about 10 minutes, or until the thickest part of the chicken is cooked through. (If you use a meat thermometer, the temperature should reach about 75 °C/ 165 °F.) Remove from the skillet and set aside. Keto Creamy Mushroom Chicken Skillet
  4. Grease the skillet where you cooked the chicken with the remaining ghee. Dice the onion and mince the garlic. Add the onion to the skillet and cook on medium-high until fragrant, for about 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, slice the mushrooms. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook for 2 to 3 minutes mixing a few times. Keto Creamy Mushroom Chicken Skillet
  6. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Cook for a few minutes, until the mushrooms are tender. If you're using zucchini noodles as a side, this is when I add the chopped zucchini cores to the skillet. If you want your sauce to be thick and creamy, cook for a little longer to reduce it.

  7. Add the creme fraiche (or sour cream) and stir to combine. Cook for another 2 minutes. Add the fresh chopped herbs.
  8. Finally, add back the chicken breasts and cook for a few minutes just to heat through. Keto Creamy Mushroom Chicken Skillet
  9. Optionally, serve with zucchini noodles — here's how to prepare them, or with shirataki noodles for a lower carb option (here's how to prepare shirataki noodles). Keto Creamy Mushroom Chicken Skillet

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
