Tuesday Already … and hoping you are feeling fine !

Do you often feel Tuesday’s can be a funny day? The day after Monday and the day before mid-week, what do we do with Tuesday’s?

Whereas, Thursday’s feels completely different, it is after all … almost the end of the working week!

… but anyway I woke up this morning feeling fine … and didn’t get too disappointed when I saw some grey clouds … perhaps the sun may come out soon, we shall see … but on a positive note I’m wishing everyone a Happy Tuesday…

I hope you may be feeling ‘sparkling’ as the image shows but if not, I hope you feel better as the day goes on … and perhaps you may wish to consider this tasty dish for dinner tonight!


Chicken with Mushrooms and Peas
a recipe that suits my LCHF lifestyle


It’s a quick and easy chicken dish with bacon, peas and a parsley sauce – use chicken thighs for extra flavour and juiciness – very tasty.

Ingredients:
Serves Four

2 tbsp. olive oil
500g boneless, skinless chicken thighs
a little flour, for dusting
50g cubetti di pancetta
300g small button mushrooms
2 large shallots, chopped
250ml chicken stock
1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
50g frozen peas
small handful parsley, finely chopped

Method:
1. Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a frying pan. Season and dust the chicken with flour, brown on all sides. Remove. Fry the pancetta and mushrooms until softened, then remove.

2. Add the final tbsp. oil and cook shallots for 5 minutes. Add the stock and vinegar, bubble for 1-2 minutes. Return the chicken, pancetta and mushrooms and cook for 15 minutes. Add the peas and parsley and cook for 2 mins more, then serve.


Nutrition Per serving:
3g carbs 13g fat 32g protein

Tastes great served with a mix of cauliflower and broccoli florets, or some buttery mashed swede.

Chicken can make a tasty meal and is usually very reasonably priced, it’s also one of the most popular meats around. It has a high level of good quality protein, as well as B vitamins, iron, copper and selenium, I hope you may enjoy this dish soon.
