This Low Carb Creamy Spinach & Mushroom Chicken is creamy, rich in flavor and leaves you feeling satisfied. If you liked my keto creamy garlic tuscan shrimp recipe, you’re going to love this one as well. I used thicker chicken breasts but if you want to cut down the cooking time you can slice them in half and make them thinner.creamy-spinach-and-mushroom-chicken

For this recipe, I used Butcher Box Chicken Breasts. They have the best cuts of meat whether you’re following keto or not and they deliver right to your door so you don’t have to leave the house. They offer 100% grass-fed, grass-finished beef, free-range, organic chicken, heritage breed pork, and wild caught Alaskan salmon. You can pick your own meats and choose when and often you want it delivered. If you want to try Butcher Box, head on over here to check them out.
