Ingredients

  • 14 ounces Miracle Noodle angel hair shiratake spiralized vegetables or spaghetti squash work too
  • 4 skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/3 cup crushed pork rinds
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons butter divided
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken bone broth
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley or equivalent fresh

Instructions

  • Prepare Miracle Noodles by draining, rinsing, and boiling per package directions. I like to then heat the noodles in a dry pan until most of the water has been removed (they will start to stick to pan bottom).
  • Using a meat mallet, pound chicken to about half inch thickness.  Or, you can use only two breasts and butterfly them in half.
  • Combine pork rinds, coconut flour, onion powder, salt, and pepper in dish suitable for coating chicken. Lightly coat each chicken breast with mixture.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons butter with 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium high heat. Cook 2 coated chicken breasts in the hot fat until each side is browned. Remove cooked chicken to plate. Add the additional 2 tablespoons each of butter and olive oil. Cook remaining two coated chicken breasts in hot fat until golden on both sides. Remove cooked breasts to plate.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Add chicken broth and lemon juice. Sprinkle in xanthan gum and combine into broth mixture with a whisk. Heat until sauce is thickened.
  • Whisk in heavy cream. Taste and adjust seasonings if need. Sprinkle in parsley. Remove from heat.
  • Place each chicken on a bed of Miracle Noodles angel hair shiratake pasta. Cover each breast with cream sauce. 

Notes

For those watching calories, be light on the sauce. A little goes a long way.
