Low-Carb Chicken-Portobello Broilers

These low-carb mushroom caps require a broiler, although you could probably make them in the oven without one – I’m just not sure how long the cook time would be. It can also be a little tricky for folks who aren’t good at cooking two things at once (like me), but the cook time is short enough that if you do the steps separately, it shouldn’t be cold. At just 3g net carbs, these make a great meal, and could be coupled with garlic greens as a side.

You’ll want to select large mushroom caps with a consistent size if you can.
