This is my go to meal since switching to low carb. Great to reheat for lunches, I freeze and reheat these throughout the week.

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 1kg Chicken Thighs
  • 500gm Bacon, diced
  • 2-3 handfuls Baby Spinach
  • 600ml Thickened Cream
  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 tsp Basil
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic (minced or powdered)
  • 500gm Mushrooms sliced
  • 500ml Chicken stock
  • dash salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Heat oil in fry pan. Pan fry mushrooms until soft, set aside.
  2. Pan fry bacon until brown, set aside.
  3. Brown chicken thighs, approx 5 mins each side. Add chicken stock, simmer until cooked through. Remove from heat, tip out chicken stock, cut chicken into small bite-sized chunks and set aside. Lower heat, clean pan and return pan to heat.
  4. Combine cream, eggs, parmesan cheese, basil, oregano, garlic and whisk together. Pour into pan, add baby spinach and stir through until sauce thickens and cheese melts to form a cheesy sauce. Add bacon, chicken pieces and mushrooms.
  5. Heat through and stir continuously so it doesn't stick to pan. This can be served with vegetables for a low carb dish or with pasta or rice.
