Low-Carb Breton Chicken

Step 1Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper from both sides (use 1 small or 1/2 large chicken breast per each serving). Peel and slice the onion and carrot into thin slices. Slice the leek and mince the garlic.

Step 2Grease a skillet with 1 tbsp of avocado oil (or olive oil). Add the chicken breasts, skin side down, and cook on medium-high for about 3 minutes without moving. Turn on the other side, reduce to medium, and cook for another 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. (If you use a meat thermometer, the temperature should reach about 75 °C/ 165 °F.)

Step 3Grease the skillet where you cooked the chicken with the remaining 1 tbsp avocado oil and all of the butter (or ghee). Add the onion and cook on medium-high for 3 minutes, until fragrant. Add the garlic, carrot and leek. Cover with a lid and cook on medium for 8 to 10 minutes, until the carrot is tender.

Step 4Add the Dijon mustard (or yellow mustard), white wine and lemon juice. Stir through to combine. Add the creme fraiche (or sour cream) and cook until the sauce is thickened and creamy, for about 3 minutes. Add the fresh chopped herbs such as thyme or parsley.

Step 5Add back the chicken, skin side up, and cook for a few minutes just to heat through. You can optionally place the skillet under a broiler to crisp up the skin (make sure to use an oven-friendly skillet).

Step 6Slice the chicken and serve. Eat with cauliflower mash, cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles, or with shirataki noodles for a lower carb option (here's how to prepare shirataki noodles).
