Low carb butter chicken and “rice”

Much of indian cooking is easily adapted to low carb cooking. Just take away the added sugar or flour for thickening and you have a yummy low carb dinner. My bf absolutely loved this dish!

Low carb butter chicken.

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tbs garam masala
2 tbs tomato paste
1-2 tbs oil
1 med onion
2-3 cloves minced garlic
2 tsp grated ginger
Pinch red chili flakes
1/4 cup heavy cream
Salt and pepper to taste
2-3 tbs chives

Cube chicken into bite sized pieces. Dice onion. Add oil to preheated frying pan. Add onions, garlic, ginger and spices. Fry for 2-3 minutes until onion just begin to soften (you want a little bite let in the onions). Add tomato paste and cook for a couple minutes. You want a little browning on the tomato paste.

Add chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes. Reduce the heat and add the cream along with a splash of water. Cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Add chives and salt/ pepper to taste.

Serve with cauliflower rice! Yum!
