Hi Tammy, I have asked the recipe team for assistance with this recipe. For 2 people, you could cook 2 skin on chicken breasts or thighs.
Hi Sarah, margarine would not be a great substitute as it is heavily processed. In our dairy-free collection you can find some alternatives listed in the opening text! https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/recipes/dairy-free.
Some who are dairy-free find that including butter is okay as it only contains trace amounts of milk protein and sugar. Those who cannot or chose not to include butter may substitute ghee or coconut/olive oil for instance. Hope this helps!
If you put it on the green beans, especially if it's at room temperature, it will melt! No need to eat raw butter.
Hi Jose! Yes, you can do that if that is your only option. Fresh is always best for taste and less chance for additives!
If you don't wish to add that much butter to your plate for the serving, you can easily use less. The very low carbs and the protein are the important components of this dish.
This is a boneless, skinless chicken breast, but you can use any cut of chicken you prefer. A thigh would have a little less protein and more fat.
Sadly I don't like butter or cream never use them in cooking.
Can I substitute olive oil and cheese? Angela
The substitutes may depend on the recipe. In this case, you could fry in olive oil and top the green beans with cheese if that suits your preferences!
