Creamy simmered chicken with olives, salami and capers.
Yes this creamy food is “diet food” can you believe it!? And it tastes unbelievable. I’m busy trying out this new diet called banting, it’s low carbs and high fat. So far it’s working brilliantly and everything tastes too good to be true. This creamy chicken is definitely a winner.
- x2 chicken breasts cut into strips
- 1 red onion, sliced
- 1 red pepper, sliced (I used yellow)
- 10 slices salami cut up
- 80g butter
- 2 tbsp capers
- 1/4 cup green olives
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 1 cup cream
- salt and pepper for seasoning
1.) In a large, heavy based frying pan sauté the onion, pepper and salami in the butter until slightly brown.
2.) Add the capers, olives and stock and boil until reduced by half.
3.) Add the cream and reduce by a third.
4.) Drop the chicken pieces into the sauce and simmer for 2-3min.
5.) Season with salt and pepper and serve.
** You can do the exact same recipe but swap the cream for good quality tomatoes, tinned or fresh.
