Low Carb Chicken Recipe
This is a low carb chicken recipe for chicken ratatouille. The best, most natural chicken is organic. If possible, use organic free-range chicken.
This is easy to make and may serve two. Simply double the ingredient quantities if more servings are required.
When making this for several people and doubling or trebling the quantities, after cooking it we like to place the chicken ratatouille in a warmed casserole dish and bring it to the table to serve.
This meal can be eaten fresh or, to save time, cooked the day before and then thoroughly reheated.

Heat the oil in large skillet.
Add the 1 inch chicken pieces and sauté, stirring and turning for about 2 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Add the tomatoes, garlic, basil, parsley and black pepper to the pan, stirring gently until mixed. Simmer gently for approximately five minutes until most of the liquid has evaporated and the chicken is tender.
When cooked, add salt and pepper according to taste.
Once served, garnish with fresh chopped coriander (cilantro) leaves.
