Keto Chicken Stroganoff

Chicken breast smothered in a rich and creamy mushroom sauce…this keto 30 minute meal can be on your dinner table in no time. Serve it with my Instant pot mashed cauliflower for a winner of a dinner.Traditionally you would serve chicken stroganoff on top of cooked noodles. But for those of us on a keto or low carb diet, the starch is actually the enemy,

The ingredients you’ll need

You’ll only need a few simple ingredients to make this tasty chicken stroganoff recipe. The exact measurements are included in the recipe card below. Here’s an overview of what you’ll need:

Chicken: I use cubed boneless skinless chicken breasts when making this recipe. I’m fairly confident that boneless skinless chicken thighs would work too and might, in fact, be juicier. But I almost always have chicken breast on hand, so that’s what I tend to use.

Kosher salt and black pepper: If using fine salt, you should reduce the amount you use, or the dish could end up too salty.

Olive oil: I love cooking with this delicious oil. But if you’d rather use an oil with a higher smoke point, you can use avocado oil instead.

Chopped onion: I’m lazy, so I use the food processor when I need to chop onions. Sometimes I even buy pre-chopped onions at the store. Hey, whatever makes life easy, right?

Sliced fresh mushrooms: White mushrooms, Cremini, or baby Bella. All work equally well in this recipe.

Minced garlic: Mince it yourself, or use the stuff that comes in a jar. Both work. You already know that I’m lazy, so guess what I use…

Heavy cream: I tried using Greek yogurt one time and thought it eas too tart. So heavy cream is definitely the way to go!
