One of the comfort foods I love to get when I’m at Olive Garden is Chicken Marsala. I decided to find a Low Carb way to enjoy one of my Favorites MY WAY low carb. This is a Simple Easy way to lean to re-love Chicken Marsala without all the Carbs the restaurants love to put in our food. If you love Chicken Marsala like I do, you’ll see this Easy fix is well worth a try.
In this recipe I did use a short cut sauce and I’ll explain why later, so we are not going to be making our Marsala sauce from scratch, well not exactly 🙂
What your going to need
Chicken Breast slightly pounded
1/2 Cup Crisco
2 Cups sliced Mushrooms ( I used Portabella)
2 Tablespoons of Butter for mushrooms
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon of Butter for Zoodles
1/2 Tablespoon Garlic Powder (fresh Garlic 2 Cloves crushed well).
Salt and Pepper
First lets go ahead and get our chicken ready cover with plastic wrap and pound lightly. Then place your large pan on a Medium high burner and add Crisco and heat.
Salt and Pepper Chicken and Add to HEATED oil.
Brown both sides. Turn over chicken pieces, and Brown slightly on both sides about 4 minutes each side. Then Remove from the pan set aside for a min.
Add Butter to Pan and use to deglaze your Pan.
Once Butter is melted and still on Med. High Add your Sliced Mushrooms.Incorporate and stir into Butter.
OK…here is my shortcut, now I preach about Man Made foods and making everything from scratch all the time, but, every now and then we find a decent substitute. Living were I do getting to a Liquor store is 45 min. away. So I found a Low Carb alternative thats not to bad at all.
I found this product at Walmart, its inexpensive and the taste is almost spot on. But do add the extra mushrooms as shown above.
Okee Dokee, that said lets move on.
Next after mushrooms are slightly Saute, lets add our Short Cut Sauce. Then add Chicken.
Lets get our Noodles ready while that is Simmering.
I have a cool little device I got at the store, I think its called a Vagetti or Zoodle. If you don’t have one of these GET ONE, but in the meantime you can slice your Zucchini very then.
In a Small Sauce Pan add 1 Tablespoon of Butter and 1 tablespoon of olive Oil, Garlic,Salt & Pepper.
Lets Plate and Eat, You guys enjoy the fresh Flavors and Low Carb LOVE IT!!!
