A low-carbohydrate meal. All measurements are approximate (and to taste).
4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
olive oil (garlic infused is good)
parmesan cheese, grated (please don't use the stuff in the cardboard can, eww)
2 portobella mushrooms, stems removed and cut into semi-circles
mozzarella cheese, sliced
salt and pepper to taste
4 squares of tin foil
  1. pre-heat oven to 350
  2. brush chicken breasts with olive oil
  3. place chicken breasts in the center of foil squares
  4. top with grated parmesan (as much as you like)
  5. put a portobella mushroom half on top of each breast
  6. top with sliced mozzarella (as much as you like)
  7. fold foil squares into cooking packets and place in the oven for 40 minutes - 1 hour, until chicken is cooked through.
  8. open, put on a plate and serve with green veggies
Serves 4.

Interesting (and still low-carb) additions:
  • for crispy coated chicken, crush some pork rinds and roll breasts to coat (not my cup-o-tea, but a fairly standard low-carb breading substitute)
  • for extra zing, add extra crushed garlic under the mushroom
  • for a cordon bleu type meal, slice chicken breasts in half, butterfly style, pound them flat and stuff with ham and cheese before topping as above
  • add a spinach leaf under the mushroom
  • substitute your favorite cheeses
I used to eat this with pasta orzo until going low-carb, now I prefer broccoli or spinach. Vegetables can be cooked inside the packet with the chicken.
