    24 oz Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast - Raw (by LAURIE32)
    1 cup, chopped Onions, raw
    8 oz Baby Bella aka Baby Portabella Mushrooms (by WONDERGIRL220)
    0.5 cup, chopped Green Peppers (bell peppers)
    0.5 cup, chopped Peppers, sweet, red, fresh
    0.25 cup Parsley
    0.5 cup Chicken Bone Broth - Homemade
    16 tbsp Organic Valley Heavy Whipping Cream
    4 oz Swiss Cheese
    2 tbsp Organic Valley Pasture Butter (14 g)
    2 tbsp duck fat (by STRIVER57)
    2 tsp Garlic
    2 tbsp Tapioca Flour


To lower carb count, omit tapioca starch. Reduce liquids in vegetables to 1/4 rather than 1/2 before adding cream.


1) In large skillet, melt butter and duck fat (or all butter if duck fat isn't available). Saute chicken cubes until no longer pink. Remove to bowl, leaving fat and juices.
2) Saute mushrooms, onion, green and red peppers, garlic and parsley until vegetables are crisp-tender. Add spices; mix well. Stir in bone broth. Increase heat to moderately high, cook & stir to reduce liquids in pan by half (reduce to one fourth if NOT using tapioca flour).
3) Sprinkle tapioca flour over sauteed vegetables (if using); stir to combine well. Allow to simmer about 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
4) Reduce heat to medium low. Add grated cheese. Slowly add heavy cream while stirring to incorporate.
5) Heat gently until cheese is melted and creamy mixture has thickened.
Serve over zucchini noodles, parsnip noodles, or spring greens.
