Garlic Chicken

garlicchickenandcarrotsWhenever Tyla suggests that we eat a really healthy meal, one of my first thoughts is a Garlic Chicken recipe from our favorite low carb recipe site ( I admit that it doesn’t sound particularly appetizing when you look at the recipe, but the result is pretty good and it’s all good for you. Pairing it with a nice green veggie like steamed broccoli or peas helps to balance it out visually so you don’t just have a big plate of brown and orange.


  • 6 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
  • 1 small yellow onion, peeled and sliced
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and sliced thin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chopped into stew-size pieces
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley for garnish, chopped or torn
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Combine the garlic, onions and carrots in a wok, and cook until the onions are translucent.
  2. Add the chicken and cook until the chicken is done and the carrots are somewhat soft.
  3. Toss in parsley just before removing wok from heat.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
