Very Low Carb Chicken Scampi

By Avera

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced, divided

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh oregano

  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh parsley

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup white wine, divided

  • 5 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, 4 ounces each, cut into 1-inch strips

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/4 cup chicken stock

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1/2 cup Roma tomatoes, diced

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  1. Combine the pepper, half the garlic, the salt, oregano, parsley, lemon juice, and half of the wine in a resealable plastic bag.

  2. Add the chicken. Mix gently to coat the chicken with the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator for several hours (overnight is best).

  3. When ready to cook the chicken, preheat the broiler, on low if your range has this setting. Remove the chicken from the marinade (save the remaining marinade) and place in a shallow pan.

  4. Broil 8 inches from the heat, turning once, until the chicken is no longer pink inside (about 15 minutes).

  5. While the chicken is broiling, heat the olive oil in a saute pan. Saute the remaining garlic, until fragrant, but not browned.

  6. Add the remaining white wine to the saute pan and scrape to remove any bits on the pan. Add the remaining marinade and chicken stock. Bring to a boil. Reduce the sauce by half. Stir in the butter and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper, as needed. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Top with the Parmesan cheese.
