“Here's a little invention I came up with when DH and I were low-carbing faithfully - he loved it!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a nonstick skillet, cook chicken breasts in a small amount of olive oil; remove from heat when done and set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan (I used a 3 quart saucepan), sauté onions, bell pepper, and garlic in a small amount of olive oil until fragrant.
  3. Add tomatoes, mushrooms, and green chilies, and sauté for a few minutes longer.
  4. Add heavy cream and cheese; stir frequently until cheese is melted.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Heat until sauce is bubbly.
  7. Pour sauce over chicken in skillet; heat until sauce thickens slightly, stirring frequently.
  8. NOTE: I have since made this recipe without the green chilies and find that I like it better that way.
  9. NOTE: This recipe makes a LOT of sauce.
  10. If you don't like so much sauce, cut back on the cream.
