Chicken and mushroom salad

chicken and mushroom - final 1

I have declared diet in the house for my hubby who is a little bit more than needed – overweight. A little bit as he feels his bones are heavy and thus the alarming needle swing of the weighing scale. Agreed. But I feel he is more than the needed normal weight especially when he has to pick out only the double XLs!

Well so case rests on me and the verdict is THE DIET.

So dinner is now as carbs free as can be and keto possible as can be. Luckily my hubby is pretty ok with it as he loves chicken – which is protein and keto and gluten free.

So today he is having a chicken and mushroom salad.

This salad is quite filling for a dinner. When on a diet, dinner should be as light as possible. Even when not on a diet – it is always better to eat like a pauper at night.

This salad is also a good recipe for keto followers and gluten free followers.

I love it especially because it has two delicious ingredients in it – chicken and mushrooms.
