This smothered chicken recipe y’all…it’s so good! You’ll want to put this on the menu soon.

Since the new year, I have really been focusing on eating less carbs.

Not for a “fad” diet, but because my body (I have PCOS and I am hypothyroid) responds best to a diet with limited carbohydrates (this book is awesome if you want to learn more about why eating less carbs works).

I typically get bored doing this and “fall off the wagon” pretty quickly.

This time around though, something feels different! I honestly think the new Facebook food video trend has made this a more enjoyable experience. I have found a LOT of great ideas following Facebook pages that post food videos!

This smothered chicken recipe is no exception. I made mine slightly different then the video (based on what I had on hand), and it was amazing.

Oh and the leftovers?

I think I might double the recipe next time just to be sure we have leftovers. It was remarkable!

Eating low carb, I really rely on leftovers to be sure I have a nice filling lunch and honestly we loved this smothered chicken recipe so much, there was only one tiny piece of chicken left for us to fight over the next day!

This smothered chicken recipe is a great way to use boneless skinless chicken cutlets, but I think it would taste great with chicken thighs as well! I could drink this sauce for days.

Creamy Garlic & Mozzarella Smothered Chicken Recipe 

Inspired by My Incredible Recipes

Ingredients: 

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken cutlets (thin sliced chicken breast)
  • 6 slices thick cut bacon (cook your bacon in the oven or on a pan until crispy and crumble)
  • 6 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup fresh spinach (plus more to serve your chicken over!)
  • 1/2 cup chopped sundried tomatoes (drained)
  • 1 teaspoon parsley ( I always have this on hand. I love it! I always waste parsley when I buy a big bunch of it in the store)
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • (Note: she puts Parmesan cheese in hers. I didn’t have any! If you have some freshly grated parm, she recommended 3/4 cup).

Directions: 

  1. Drizzle your pan with olive oil and heat it on medium heat.
  2. Meanwhile, salt & pepper your chicken very well.
  3. Put your chicken in the pan and brown and heat through. Set chicken aside in a container to keep warm
  4. Add the cream, chicken broth, garlic powder, salt & pepper (and optional parm cheese) and bring to a high simmer. Whisk until it thickens up and then add the spinach and sundried tomatoes.
  5. Once spinach wilts, add your chicken back in and cover with some of the sauce, mozzarella cheese slices and bacon. You might want to put a lid on your pan so the cheese can melt.
  6. Serve! I opted to serve on a bed of more spinach.

Yum! This was so tasty. It will most definitely be on our regular rotation. 3 out of 4 in our family loved it (which is the most I can typically ever expect!)
