Ingredients

  • 2

    tablespoons butter

  • 2

    tablespoons finely-minced/chopped onion

  • 8

    ounces mushrooms finely chopped (wild mushrooms if possible)

  • 8

    tablespoons cooked spinach

  • Salt to taste

  • Freshly-ground black pepper to taste

  • 2

    teaspoons chopped chervil

  • 8

    chicken breasts

  • Butter as needed

  • SAUCE:

  • 1

    tablespoon butter

  • 1

    tablespoon finely-minced onion or shallots

  • 1/2

    pint chicken stock

  • 1/4

    cup dry white wine

  • 5

    mushrooms chopped

  • 1

    pint heavy cream

  • Salt to taste

  • Freshly-ground black pepper to taste

Directions

Melt the butter in a pan and sauté the shallots or onion until softened. Add the mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the cooked spinach, season to taste with salt and pepper and add the chervil. With a sharp knife, cut a lengthways pocket in each of the chicken breasts and fill it with the prepared stuffing. Lightly butter the breasts and wrap them in separate pieces of foil to form loose but secure parcels. Place on a baking tray and bake, 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. To make the sauce, melt the butter in a pan and sauté the shallots or onion. Add the stock, wine and mushrooms and boil rapidly to reduce by three-quarters. Add the cream and cook for a minute or two longer to allow the sauce to thicken slightly. The sauce should have a thin coating consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Unwrap the foil parcels, lift the chicken breasts on to warmed plates and pour over the sauce. This recipe yields 8 servings; 4 carb grams per serving.
