  • 500 grams chicken thighs (thinly sliced, 1.1 lb)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (thinly sliced, 1.1 lb)
  • 4 tablespoons ghee (thinly sliced, 1.1 lb)
  • 1 yellow onion (thinly sliced, 1.1 lb)
  • 2 cloves garlic (thinly sliced, 1.1 lb)
  • 1 celery ribs (thinly sliced, 1.1 lb)
  • 1 cup white mushrooms (thinly sliced, 1.1 lb)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (thinly sliced, 1.1 lb)
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock (thinly sliced, 1.1 lb)
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (thinly sliced, 1.1 lb)
  • 1 bay leaf (thinly sliced, 1.1 lb)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika ,
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream (thinly sliced, 1.1 lb)
  • 4 large egg yolks ,
  • 2 tablespoons herbs (thinly sliced, 1.1 lb)
  • 4 cups cauliflower rice (thinly sliced, 1.1 lb)
  • freshly ground black pepper


  • Cut the chicken into medium pieces and season with salt. Heat a large casserole dish or skillet greased with 2 tablespoons of ghee over a medium-high heat. Add the chicken slices and cook until browned from all sides, for 6-8 minutes. Once browned, using a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl and set aside. Work in batches if needed - do not overfill the pan. Add another tablespoon of ghee in the pan where you cooked the chicken. Add diced onion and minced garlic. Cook until lightly browned and fragrant, for 2-3 minutes. Then, add the sliced celery stalks and mushrooms. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for a minute. Add the lemon juice, chicken stock, white wine, crumbled bay leaf and paprika. Bring to a boil and cook for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk the cream with the egg yolks. Slowly drizzle the egg & cream mixture into the pan while mixing and cook until thickened, for 1-2 minutes. Then, add freshly chopped herbs (reserve some for garnish). Don't waste the egg whites! Keep them for making any of my keto bread recipes or Sugar-Free Meringues. Put the browned chicken back into the casserole, combine and cook for 1-2 minutes. Once cooked, set aside. In another large pot, cook the cauliflower rice. Grease the pot with the remaining tablespoon of ghee. Add the "riced" cauliflower (see my step-by-step guide on how to "rice" cauliflower). Season with salt and pepper and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. When done, serve the chicken with the cauliflower rice and garnish with the reserved parsley.
