    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 15 minutes
        •    Cook time: 45 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4

    Ingredients

        •  1 lb Chicken Breasts (2 large) , halved lengthwise and pounded to an even 1/4" thickness
        • 
    1 lb asparagus blanched*
        • 
    3/4 tsp sea salt, divided and black pepper to taste
        • 
    3 Tbsp Unsalted Butter divided
        • 
    2 Tbsp Olive Oil divided
        • 
    16 oz button mushrooms thickly sliced
        • 
    1 small or 1/2 medium yellow onion finely diced
        • 
    2 large garlic cloves minced
        • 
    2 Tbsp fresh parsley finely chopped, plus to garnish
        • 
    1 1/2 cups Madeira Wine sweet white wine*
        • 
    1 1/2 cups low sodium beef stock or broth
        • 
    1/2 cup Whipping Cream heavy or regular
        • 
    1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded

    Method

    1. To blanch asparagus: Remove fibrous stems from asparagus by snapping them off. Fill a medium pot with 6 cups water, bring to a boil and add 1 Tbsp salt. Add asparagus and boil uncovered until crisp tender and bright green (2-3 minutes then remove from hot water and set aside).
    2. Place a large heavy (oven-safe) pan over medium/high heat and melt in 2 Tbsp butter and 1 Tbsp oil. Add sliced mushrooms and cook 5 min until soft. Stir in diced onion and cook 3 min. Add minced garlic cloves then season with 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper and 2 Tbsp parsley. Cook another 2 min then remove mixture to a plate and wipe skillet clean with wet paper towel.
    3. Slice chicken breasts in half lengthwise and pound each cutlet between plastic wrap until no more than 1/4" thick. Season chicken all over with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper. Place same pan over medium/high heat and add 1 Tbsp butter and 1 Tbsp oil. When butter is finished foaming, add chicken breasts and sauté 3 to 4 min per side or until golden and cooked through. Remove chicken from pan to the same plate with mushrooms.
    4. In the same pan, add 1 1/2 cups Madeira and boil until reduced by half (5 minutes vigorous boiling), scraping the bottom of the pan to deglaze. Add 1 1/2 cups beef broth and boil until 2/3 cup liquid remains or about 1/4 of it's original volume (10 min). Reduce heat to medium, add 1/2 cup cream and simmer until sauce thickens (2 min). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    5. Return chicken to the pan, turning it to coat in the sauce. Top with mushrooms, asparagus and sprinkle with 1 cup of mozzarella cheese over the top. Broil 3-4 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven, garnish with fresh parsley.

        •   5-6 medium zucchini cut into noodles using a spiralizer or a vegetable peeler

        •   salt and black pepper to taste

    Sauce:

        •   1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce can substitute with gluten free tamari or coconut aminos for paleo-friendly version
        •   2-3 Tablespoons honey coconut sugar or low carb sweetener of your choice (depending on how sweet your preference is)
        •   3 Tablespoons rice vinegar
        •   2 garlic cloves minced
        •   1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
        •   1 Tablespoon corn starch or use arrowroot powder or tapioca starch for a paleo version
        •   2 Tablespoons water plus more as needed to thin out sauce
        •   salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes to taste; optional

    Method

    1. In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce.
    2. In a large bowl, season chicken with salt and pepper and drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of sauce over the chicken. Allow to marinate for 30 minutes.
    3. Heat cooking oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until lightly brown, about 1-2 minutes. Add in the pineapple chunks and cook for another 1 minute, until slightly softened. Pour in the remainder of the sauce and turn the heat to high. Allow sauce to bubble and thicken while stirring - about 1-2 minutes - add more water a little at a time (only as needed if the sauce is too thick). Season to taste with salt, black pepper and/or red chili flakes.
    4. If cooking the zucchini noodles, add into the pan and use tongs to toss and coat with sauce. Cook for 1-2 minutes until zucchini is just tender but still firm. Be careful not to overcook.
    5. Remove from heat and drizzle extra sauce in pan over chicken and serve immediately. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds if desired.

    For meal prep: Divide evenly into lunch containers and store in fridge for up to four days.

    NOTES: Do not overcook for longer than 2 minutes or else noodles will get too soft and mushy. You can also serve the chicken over raw zucchini noodles if desired.

    These Cheesy Chicken Fritters are a surprising way to use chicken breast, but it really works. These fritters are tender, juicy and so flavorful. If you love easy chicken recipes, THESE chicken patties are for you!

These are a crowd pleasing treat and seriously try them with that garlic aioli which is all kinds of yum!

    If you’re pressed for time, you can cook this recipe right away after it is mixed but if you are patient or want to exercise the make-ahead option, refrigerate the mixture for 2 hours or overnight and the results will be even more juicy and flavorful.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 10 minutes
        •    Cook time: 20 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 8

    Ingredients

    For Chicken Fritters:

        •  1 1/2 lbs chicken breasts (3 large)
        • 
    2 large eggs
        • 
    1/3 cup mayonnaise
        • 
    1/3 cup all-purpose flour or cornstarch or potato starch for gluten free
        • 
    4 oz mozzarella cheese (1 1/3 cups shredded)
        • 
    1 1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh dill
        • 
    1/2 tsp salt or to taste
        • 
    1/8 tsp black pepper
        • 
    2 Tbsp Extra light olive oil to saute (or any high heat cooking oil)

    For Garlic Aioli Dip (Optional)

        • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
        •
    1 garlic clove pressed
        •
    1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
        •
    1/4 tsp salt
        •
    1/8 tsp black pepper

    Method

    1. Using a sharp knife, dice chicken into 1/3" thick pieces and place them in a large mixing bowl. Tip: If chicken breast is partially frozen, it will be a little bit easier to slice.
    2. Into the mixing bowl, add remaining batter ingredients: 2 eggs, 1/3 cup mayonnaise, 1/3 cup flour, 1 1/3 cups shredded mozzarella, 1 1/2 Tbsp dill, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp black pepper, or season to taste. Stir the mixture until well combined, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.
    3. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 Tbsp oil. When oil is hot, add the chicken mixture a heaping Tablespoon at a time. Slightly flatten out the tops with the back of your spoon and sauté uncovered 3-4 min on the first side, then flip and saute 3 min on the second side or until outsides are golden brown and chicken is fully cooked through* Repeat with remaining fritters adding more oil as needed.
    4. To make the aioli (if using), combine all ingredients in a small bowl or measuring cup and stir together until smooth.

    NOTES: To test for doneness, cut a fritter in half and the chicken should be completely white inside. If your chicken patty is browning too fast, adjust your heat down.
