Smoky Chicken & Mushrooms
I'm always looking for Lean and Green recipes and Low Carb Recipes that are short on time and big on flavor. "Big" flavor, however, doesn't always mean robust and in your face, as with garlic, onions, hot sauce, etc. Sometimes big flavor can come in other ways.
Meet this week's recipe: Smoky Chicken and Mushrooms. This easy to prepare dish combines the rich flavor of mushrooms with the unique flavor of smoky Alderwood sea salt to bring boring chicken tenderloins to a whole new level of excitement!
Quick to cook, easy to eat and one for the whole family. It's a Lean and Green, Low Carb Recipe great for a quick nightly meal. Give it a try!
Pair with any green veggie, salad or preferred side dish of your choice. You can also add veggies to this dish while cooking! Try broccoli, asparagus or even cauliflower for a complete Lean and Green Meal. Bon Appetite!

- Sprinkle with Alderwood Smoked Sea Salt before serving.
- Serve hot with your favorite sides.
** Want to make it more green? Simply add 2 cups of finely chopped broccoli florets to the dish when you add the mushrooms! Be sure to account for the additional greens in your serving.
