Mushroom Garlic Chicken Low-Carb Recipe

This Low-Carb Mushroom Garlic Chicken recipe is inspired by middle eastern flavors and spices. I like to add olives or capers to the dish, but my kids aren’t a big fan of either so I leave them out most times. This dish is simple to make and will leave you wanting more!

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 35 mins
  • Total Time: 45 mins
  • Yield: 6 1x
  • Category: Low-Carb, Primal, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free


Units Scale
  • 6 chicken breasts with skin and ribs
  • 1/3 cup low carb bake mix
  • salt (to taste)
  • pepper (to taste)
  • 23 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled, or 6 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 12 ounces mushrooms, cleaned and quartered
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, fresh
  • 1 large bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme


  1. Rinse the chicken pieces and pat them dry.
  2. Season the low carb bake mix with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Dredge the chicken pieces in the seasoned bake mix. Shake the excess bake mix off the chicken pieces.
  4. In a heavy, nonstick skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  5. Sauté the chicken skin side down until it is well-browned, approximately 4 minutes.
  6. Add the garlic and mushrooms. Turn the chicken and continue cooking until the mushrooms are evenly cooked and the chicken is brown on the other side.
  7. Pour off any fat. Add the balsamic vinegar, chicken broth, bay leaf, and thyme. Cover and simmer for an additional 25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked completely through and the juices run clear.
  8. Remove the bay leaf before serving.


A 3-pound chicken, cut up can be used in place of chicken breasts.

For another level of flavor, sliced olives or capers can be added after you pour off excess fat.
