Here is a recipe for you that is really simple to prepare and people will think you spent weeks in culinary school to learn. If you take out the cheese, this is a great low-carb, low-fat meal meal that I know the entire family will enjoy!
I posted the same image you see in this post on my social media and everyone was begging for the recipe, so I thought I would share here as well.
If you need the carbs (we all need carbs BTW!), you can optional serve this recipe on a bed of rice or with sweet or white potato – both are great options!
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1/4 tsp ground red pepper (cayenne)
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 medium green bell pepper – thinly sliced
- 1 medium white onion – thinly sliced
- 1 cup sliced mushrooms (4 oz)

- Season both sides of chicken breast with oregano, salt, garlic powder and red pepper.
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.

- Add seasoned chicken – cook evenly turning after approximately 4-6 minutes each side.
- Remove chicken from skillet, keep warm.
- Add butter to skillet – if necessary use butter to scrape up the bit of seasoning from bottom (do not remove)
- Add peppers and onions and saute for roughly 5-6 minutes
- Add mushrooms and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes under all vegetables are tender.
