In a 8x8 baking dish lay the chicken tenders and top with the diced green chiles and the diced tomatos w/green chiles. Add salt and pepper. Bake for about 40 minutes (I like mine well done...but you can adjust to your preferred doneness, just make sure to drain off any excess liquid before adding topping) .

1/4 cup of sour cream
2 Cups of Shredded Cheese (Mexican 4 cheese blend variety)

Here's one of our favorites
Boneless chicken breasts or tenders
herbs de provence
dijon or whole grain mustard
heavy cream

saute mushrooms in butter, add chicken breasts or tenders and sprinkle with herbs de provence, salt and black pepper. cook the chicken through then add heavy cream, let thicken and then add a good tsp. of dijon mustard. Don't cook too long or the mustard will go bitter.

I left out totals because depending on how many you are feeding you can adjust the ingredients up or down. I usually use:

1 pkg chicken breasts (3-4 halves)
1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced
1 Tbs. butter
pinch Herbs de provence
1 tsp. dijon or whole grain mustard
1/2 c. heavy cream or more to taste.

The original Chicke Kiev is breaded and fried. Here's my version.

Chicken Kiev the low carb way

Three whole chicken breasts with skin
1/4 lb butter
2 TBS minced fresh tarragon
2 TBS minced scallion
salt & freshly ground white or black pepper to taste
six teaspoons of good dijon mustard (I use Maille brand)

Combine the butter with the tarragon and scallions and make into a 1" thick roll on some waxed paper. Roll it up and put the roll in the refrigerator until very hard.

Carefully cut the chicken breast meat from the bone in two pieces (one from each side) making sure to keep the skin intact. Now carefully remove the skin and reserve it. You will have six pieces of chicken and six pieces of skin. (use the bones to make chicken broth)

Place each chicken breast half on a board between plastic wrap and pound thin being careful not to make any tears. Salt & pepper both sides. Spread the insides (the side that was next to the bone) with the mustard. Cut the roll of butter into six even pieces and put one piece on each chicken breast half. Tuck the chicken around the butter like an envelope, overlapping the edges.

Spread out your pieces of chicken skin and season the outside with salt & pepper. Place a rolled chicken breast on each piece of skin with the folded edge down. Pull the chicken skin up around the breast and fasten with toothpicks - it doesn't have to reach all the way around, but will serve to keep the butter inside like the breading would have.

Deep fry in canola oil or saute in butter until golden brown and crisp, and cooked through. When served, the butter inside will spurt out, so be careful.

Dottieís Cream of Mushroom Soup for Recipes

8 small mushrooms - chopped
1 stalk celery - chopped
2 tablespoons onion - chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chicken broth
3/4 cup heavy cream
Salt and pepper

In a medium skillet, saute the mushrooms, celery and onion in the butter until soft.
Add the broth and cook on medium-high heat until reduced by half.
Stir in the cream; bring to boil and cook until reduced slightly, stirring frequently. Season to taste.
Makes about 1 cup

This makes a very rich, tasty sauce that would be nice over all kinds of things, like chicken, meatballs, fish,vegetables etc. After adding the cream, make sure you simmer it long enough so that the cream is no longer white and takes on the light brownish color of the mushrooms. If you can afford the carbs, a few more mushrooms would be even better.

This is one of my favorite meals. I need to keep my fat % between 70-80% so this is one dish I make that makes it easier to do. You can make substitutions and adjustments where necessary if such is not the case for you.

Alfredo Chicken in a Pot

1.5 lbs Chicken Thighs
4 tbsp Butter
1/2 Medium Onion
1 tsp Chopped Garlic
1/2 cup Alfredo Sauce (I use 5 brothers)
Garlic Powder, Pepper, Parsley to season (or any other salt-free spices)

Sautee chopped onion in the butter until it starts to become translucent.
Add chopped garlic, sautee for 1 to 2 minutes.
Add chicken thighs and other spices and sautee on medium heat for 3-4 minutes.
Stir until all the seasoning is coating the chicken. Turn heat down and cover with a lid.
Allow the chicken to cook thoroughly. You can even use your spoon/spatula to break up the thighs into large strips/chunks.
After the chicken is cooked, add the Alfredo sauce. Mix until incorporated.
Makes anywhere from 4-6 servings.

What I do next is cook up either in the microwave or in a small pot, a can of French style green beans. I add 2 tbsp of butter, some garlic powder, pepper to taste. Then I pile 1/2 of the green beans in a bowl and a portion of the Alfredo chicken with sauce on top. Sometimes I'll eat the whole can if I know I'm low or may be low on carbs for the day. Yummy. I love this dish.

One thing though, do watch the salt. I didn't add any to the chicken because the Alfredo sauce has plenty.

Nutritional Info:
Alfredo Chicken has about 1627 cals, 129 g Fat, 6 g Carb, 106 g Protein
Green Beans have about 249 cals, 23 g Fat, 15g (8g Fiber) Carb, 4g Protein

Green Chile & Jack Chicken
*not my recipe, but I have a few tweaks to suggest at the end. - Sandy

Green Chile & Jack Chicken

"Definitely NOT low in fat, but the creamy sauce flavored with green chiles is just so perfect with the
chicken and jack cheese, you can't stop eating it. This recipe is from an old issue of Gourmet

1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon oil
2 garlic clove -- mashed
4 chicken breast halves
1 cup chicken broth
4 ounces canned green chiles -- chopped
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 cup heavy cream
4 ounces jack cheese -- shredded

Preheat broiler. In an oven proof skillet, melt butter with oil. Add garlic and chicken and saute 10
minutes over low heat, turning once. Remove chicken. Pour off fat.

Add chicken broth and scrape up any browned bits on bottom of skillet. Return chicken to skillet.
Add undrained chilies and mustard. Simmer, uncovered, until chicken is done, about 10 minutes.
Liquid should cook down and be syrupy.

Add cream and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese. Run skillet under hot
broiler until cheese melts, about 30 seconds.

Yield: 4 servings

* my serving suggestions. First of all to melt the cheese on top you don't have to fire up your broiler, just put the shredded cheese on the chicken breasts and then put the lid back on the skillet.

Second, I use low-salt chicken broth, so mine was a little bland at the end. But sprinkled with a little garlic salt, pepper, and CUMIN, it was soooo good! In fact next time I make this dish, I will incorporate the cumin into the chicken broth early on.

Third, just TRY to not eat the sauce with a spoon! It's just too yummy!

This is Atkins Chicken Chow Mein recipe. I absolutely love it and make it all the time. The original recipe called for Thick n Thin, but it is not necessary, since I didn't have it anyway. I added the can of straw mushrooms. I also often throw in some shrimp which is fabulous! The toasted almonds give it a nice crunch and take the place of the noodles. This has definitely made it into one of my top 10 recipes. Enjoy!

Chicken Chow Mein with Almonds

2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 medium onion - sliced
4 cups Napa cabbage - thinly sliced
1 cup celery - sliced
1 can straw mushrooms
3 garlic cloves - thinly sliced
1/2 packet Splenda
1 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoon sesame oil
4 cups diced cooked chicken
1/2 cup slivered almonds - lightly toasted

Saute chicken. Dice and set aside.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat until hot but not smoking.
Add onion, cabbage, celery and garlic and cook until cabbage is wilted...about 3 minutes.
In small saucepan, simmer broth, soy sauce and sesame oil, Splenda, and reduce to one half.
Add sauce to vegetables in skillet.
Stir in chicken, mushrooms and lower heat and simmer until heated through.
Sprinkle with toasted almonds before serving.

These come from the Low-Carb Comfort Food Cookbook by Michael and Mary Dan Eades.

They are really tasty and easy!

Prep Time: 15 min.
Serving Size: 1 breast
Amount per serving: 1.7 grams of carb
43.1 grams of protein
Number of servings: 8

8 chicken breast halves with skin and bones
1 1/2 cups crushed pork rinds (about 20 rinds)
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. garlic salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter or oil an ovenproof baking dish (or broiler pan) large enough to hold the chicken.

Wash the chicken and pat dry with paper towels. (Optional: For the tastiest, juiciest chicken, wash the night before, and while still wet, sprinkle liberally with Kosher or coarse salt, cover tightly, and refrigerate overnight. Rinse well and pat dry, then proceed with the recipe below, reducing the salt to 3/4 tsp. in the sauce.)

Place the crushed pork rinds on a plate or a piece of waxed paper. In a wide, shallow bowl, mix together the sour cream, salt, thyme, paprika, and garlic salt. Dip the chicken into the sour cream mixture, then roll it in the crushed pork rinds.

Place the chicken pieces in the baking dish or pan. Bake for 1 hour or until tender. (Check for doneness with an instant-read meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat. Chicken should register 165 when done.

Here's another one...I didn't have wings, so I used boneless chicken tenders and it turned out really good.

Prep. time: 20 minutes
Baking time: 1 hour
Serving size 5 wings
amount per serving: 3.0 grams of carb, 39.0 grams of protein.
Number of servings: 4

20 chicken wings
1 1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. dried chopped parsley
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. white pepper
1 c. butter, melted

wash chicken wings and pat dry with paper towels.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease an ovenproof baking dish (or broiler pan) large enough to accommodate all the wings with olive oil or coconut oil.

In a wide shallow bowl, combine the cheese, parsley, garlic powder, and white pepper, mixing well.

Dip wings first in melted butter, then in the cheese and spice mixture. Arrange them in the baking dish and bake uncovered for 1 hour. Serve hot.
