    Sous Vide Chicken Breast over Cauliflower Puree with Tarragon Mustard White Wine Sauce

    Chicken: Dry brined for 4 hours, rinsed and coated with our cracked pepper blend. Hard seared on a ripping-hot,  dome-open BGE for 45 seconds a side then Sous Vide @ 147 for 2 hours

    Cauliflower Puree: (have no idea how she does it and she's not here at the moment). Google it. 


    • Mustard Tarragon Sauce
    • · 1 TBSP Butter
    • · 1 TBSP Coarse Grain Dijon Mustard
    • · ½ Cup White Wine
    • · 1 Cup Chicken Broth
    • · ¼ Cup Half and Half
    • · 1tsp fresh Tarragon
    • · Salt & Pepper to taste

    1. Place butter in a skillet over medium high heat.
    2. When butter is foamy, add dijon mustard and wine. Reduce by half (approximately ¼ cup).
    3. Add chicken broth, lower heat to medium, and reduce to ½ cup.
    4. Add Half and Half. Reduce until thickened. Add tarragon, salt and pepper. Serve immediately

    What is the consistency of the cauliflower? Creamy mashed potatoes? Grits? Looks amazing

    Creamy purée. Very silky, no lumps. I’ll post it when I can get her to slow down.

    I broke down and joined the world of instant pot owners. For the break in cook I went with the Keto Crack Chicken and I basically followed the Keto Queen recipe (except I quadrupled the amount of bacon). 

    I ran into the “burn” issues described on their website. I ended up having to take everything out, scrape and wash the pot and start again. My recommendation would be to cook the bacon in a skillet and not sauté the bacon in the pan. 

    We have three kids in a soccer tournament this weekend and this delay threw off the timing. So the wife and I will eat when she returns with our middle child. Therefore the pic is a little rough as it’s pre-serving.  The two other kids really liked the meal. I topped some Gemelli pasta with the mixture for their dinner. The wife and I are going to use Costco’s cauliflower rice as the base. 

    Terrible pic in the pot and recipe below.  




    Ingredients
    • 2 slices bacon, chopped
    • 2 lbs (910 g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    • 2 (8 oz/227 g) blocks cream cheese
    • ½ cup (120 ml) water
    • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon dried chives
    • 1½ teaspoons garlic powder
    • 1½ teaspoons onion powder
    • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    • 1 teaspoon dried dill
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
    • ½ cup (2 oz/57 g) shredded cheddar
    • 1 scallion, green and white parts, thinly sliced
    Instructions
    1. Turn pressure cooker on, press “Sauté”, and wait 2 minutes for the pot to heat up. Add the chopped bacon and cook until crispy. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Press “Cancel” to stop sautéing. (See Note.)
    2. Add the chicken, cream cheese, water, vinegar, chives, garlic powder, onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes, dill, salt, and black pepper to the pot. Turn the pot on Manual, High Pressure for 15 minutes and then do a quick release.
    3. Use tongs to transfer the chicken to a large plate, shred it with 2 forks, and return it back to the pot.
    4. Stir in the cheddar cheese.
    5. Top with the crispy bacon and scallion, and serve.

    I purchased all 3 of Mark Sisson’s Keto Reset Cookbooks. One is strictly Instant Pot Recipes - everyone I’ve tried is great.

    Just wondering , did you smoke them, then sear?  Or all at once on the griddle?  Do you have a model number for that griddle by the way?  Looks awesome!

    smoked indirect at 250 then bumped the temp and added the griddle to sear. You could use the griddle as the stone if you wanted to but I just used my standard Adjustable Rig setup and the switched the stone for the griddle for the sear.

  • @Kent8621 do you have a way to get pickle juice or do you just dump it out of the jars? My wife was asking about doing a similar flavor to Chick Fil A chicken the other night.

    We are officially back on the wagon with low carb so this week is gonna be an adjustment.

    the kids like pickles in their lunch so we go through several and a great easy keto lunch is cream cheese spread on ham wrapped around a pickle, but yes we just dumped it from jars and over a the past few weeks and then soaked the chicken in it.  i did it for 6 hours and it really drew out the pickle taste in the chicken, if you dont want a stronger taste less time would work i think.  i did use some chicken tenders (they were on sale at sprouts) i might recomend a better cut next time, despite there name they were not very tender.  i also had some issues with the pork rind skin coming off when frying, so i need to tweek that also.

    @Kent8621 they are almond flour and mozzarella (standard Keto almond flour crust)

    i bought 2 1/2 gallon ziplocks and layered them with the parchment paper I cooked them on. I usually cook them in the oven and make them 8-10 at a time. https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/fat-head-pizza

  • Low carb Strawberry Cheese cake 

    Add to large mixing bowl: 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese softened,  Soften cream cheese a little by putting both packs of cream cheese on a safe dish or plate in the oven or microwave. Then heat in microwave for 15 seconds, or heat in oven at 300 F for 1 minute or until soft.*Do not melt.*

    1 tsp lemon extract, ½ tsp vanilla extract. Beat with electric mixer on medium for about a couple minutes or until creamy and mixed. Set aside.

    In a medium size glass or ceramic mixing bowl combine: ½ cup stevia sweetener and 1 envelope gelatin. Stir together.

    Add ¾ cup boiling water to sweetener and gelatin mixture and stir thoroughly.

    Slowly add a little of the water gelatin mixture at a time to the cream cheese mixture and beat in with electric mixer on medium. Continue to add more and mix in.

    Once gelatin mixture is completely added and mixed into cream cheese mixture, add 3 ½ tbsp. raspberry or strawberry jam to the cream cheese gelatin mixture and lightly beat in with electric mixer on low for only a few seconds. *Don’t beat in thoroughly, lightly swirled is good.*

    Spoon equal amounts of mixture into 12 silicone muffin cups or cupcake paper container that are lining a muffin pan, or spoon all of mixture into a greased spring form pan.

    Refrigerate for 3 hours, then freeze for 20 to 30 minutes (this helps for easier removal of the cheesecake bites from the cups) * don’t leave in freezer longer as you don’t want them frozen.

    Remove from silicone cups by slowly peeling back the baking cups until the baking cup is inside out. If using a spring form pan, then just remove the outer pan sides and slice and serve.

    Store unused portions in the fridge, and can always freeze a little before serving again.

  • Making my grocery list after clearing out all the Christmas sugar and junk. 

    Figured I would get on here and steal some recipes. Probably not the only one this week so I’ll give it a bump.

  • @The_Stache was asking about this one so I’ll leave it here. 


    Ratatouille with ground Italian sausage


    1/2 lb of Italian sausage
    1 cup of low carb marinara sauce 
    2 cloves garlic
    1 eggplant 
    1 squash
    1 zucchini 
    4 Roma tomatoes
    basil, salt, pepper, olive oil

    Sear 1/2 a lb of Italian sausage. Add 2 cloves of chopped garlic. Use a low carb spaghetti/marinara sauce(maybe a cup...I used Rao’s) and pour on top with some basil. 

    Slice thin (I used a mandolin cause I like my fingers) an eggplant, zucchini, squash, and a couple Roma tomatoes. Stack them in about 4 inch stacks and start circling around your pan.  Rough chop whatever you have left and toss in the center to change texture. Add salt, pepper, and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle mozzarella. Wrap in aluminum foil and cook indirect at 375 for 1 hour. 

    Definitely doing this again.
