Default Shells' Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken

4 pieces Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (cut Into Bite Sized Pieces)
5 cloves Garlic, Minced
1 teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoons Black Pepper
½ teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
¼ teaspoons Ground Coriander
¼ teaspoons Cumin
¼ teaspoons Cardamom
1 whole Lime, Juiced
1 whole Onion, Diced
¼ cups Butter
1 can (14.5 Oz. Can) Tomato Sauce
1 can (14.5 Oz. Can) Petite Diced Tomatoes
1 pint Whipping Cream
1 bunch Chopped Cilantro, to taste

Preparation Instructions
Combine first 9 ingredients and marinate overnight.
Saute the onion in the butter until soft. Add marinated chicken and cook about 10 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Cook for 30 minutes over medium-low heat with the lid on. Add the whipping cream (I have used light cream or half-and-half also) and cilantro just before serving.
Note: this is a little spicy, but you can cut back on the cayenne if you want.

The recipe says to serve over rice but I never serve it over anything. It makes a ton of sauce but it is so good you will eat it with a spoon .... trust me

Default Hairchick's Chicken Casserole

Start with chicken breast cubed:I sauté in evoo until it's browning.. I steam a head of brocolli and a head of cauliflower.. I mix together a jar of the kraft alfredo (2 carbs per serving) and a small block of velvetta, I get the rest of the alfredo out of the jar with half and half, about 1/3 of a jar... I mix it all together and put in a disposable baking dish cover the top with shredded cheddar and french fried onions, or pork skins crumbled... Bake at 350 for 40 minutes...

Default Shirataki Noodles with Pancetta, Spinach & Alfredo

Readyfreddy's Shirataki Noodles with Pancetta, Spinach & Alfredo

NOTE: Shiratake noodles and prepared alfredo sauce are not for Induction.

Parboil and drain 1 package shirataki noodles. Drain fully again.

In a sauce pan on medim or medium-high, add evoo and 3 tbs pancetta.
When pancetta starts to get crispy, add 4 cups spinach (it cooks down). Stir. When spinach is wilted, add 1/4 cup alfredo sauce (I found one that has 2 carbs for this amount). Stir. Add in noodles. Stir, add salt and pepper. Enjoy!

Shirataki noodles - 2 net carbs (check your brand); spinach - 1 net carb; pancetta - 0 carbs; evoo - 0 carbs; Alfredo - 2 net carbs (check your brand) Total net carbs - 5

Default Shells' Cauliflower Soup Variation

Shells posted a variation on Sandyfanny's Cauliflower Soup:

Sandyfanny's cauliflower soup ... with some variations. I got it all going and then went to add the chicken broth, only to find that I had beef broth and mushroom broth and vegetable broth and seafood broth .... but no chicken broth. So I used organic beef broth and added some roasted garlic to it ... it was yummy.

*Shells also noted that she roasted her own garlic.

Default Baked Gruyere & Sausage Omelet

Baked Gruyere & Sausage Omelet

Butter, for greasing baking dish
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, diced
1/2 pound mild turkey sausage, casings removed
8 large eggs
1/3 cup part heavy cream/part water
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 1/2 cups (4 ounces) grated Gruyere cheese
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly butter an 8 by 8-inch baking dish.
Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the sausage and cook until brown, about 5 minutes. Set the pan aside to cool.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, salt and pepper, to taste, until smooth, about 20 seconds. Add the red bell pepper, 1 cup of Gruyere cheese and 1/4 cup of parsley. Stir in the onion mixture. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Cut the baked omelet into wedges and sprinkle with remaining parsley before serving.
Cook's Note: To make individual servings, divide the batter between 4 buttered 8-ounce ramekins. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes.

Default Oven-Barbecued Baby Back Ribs...

Easy and delicous! I roast a whole rack and eat three or four times...I love 'em!

Here's the link to the recipe, complete with "how-to" pictures:

http://delicioushouse.blogspot.com/2...ecue-baby.html

I prefer to use zero carb Scott's Barbecue Sauce, but I'm out and can't find it in my stores suddenly. I'm using Kraft Light Original Barbecue Sauce at 5 carbs per 2 Tablespoons. I'll be careful to check how much I'm using on the whole rack and count the appropriate carbs into each meal.

Default Linsy's Pumpkin Cheesecake Find!

Linsy found a delicious low-carb recipe for pumpkin cheesecake. Here's the link:

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/recipe...kin-Cheesecake



Note: It's not for Induction, but sounds like a really special treat for the holidays.

I also noticed that the author says it works without the crust. At 4 carbs per serving (without the crust), it should be a great holiday find.

Default My Grandmother's Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing

Make a spinach salad.* Crumble the crisp bacon over the spinach salad.

HOT BACON DRESSING

5 slices lean bacon
2 teaspoons brown sugar Splenda (or regular Truvia or Splenda - I use 1 packet of Truvia)
1/4 cup red wine vinegar or cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 or 3 green onions chopped (tops and bulbs) or 1/4 red onion, chopped
1 egg, boiled and grated or chopped
salt and pepper, to taste (optional)


In a skillet, sauté bacon until crisp. Drain, reserving a tablespoon of bacon drippings. Add sugar, vinegar, and pepper.
Chop green onions. Sauté for 1 minute in the bacon drippings reserved in the pan.
Pour immediately over baby lettuce or spinach. Sprinkle boiled, grated egg over the salad as a garnish.

Note: Be sure spinach is dry so it is better able to absorb the dressing. Season, if desired, with salt and pepper. Serve hot immediately.

*I like thinly sliced red onion, English cucumber, chopped boiled egg and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese mixed with baby spinach for the salad.

**1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish can be added to the sautee if you like the "bite." I make mine without horseradish.
