Remove woody ends from asparagus and arrange on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive and sesame oil, add salt and pepper to taste.  Roast in 400 F oven for 10-12 minutes.

In the meantime, add the slivered almonds to a nonstick pan, and toast over medium high heat until they just begin to brown.  Watch them carefully, they burn easily towards the end.

Ingredients for main dish: Chicken breast, mozzarella, canned fire roasted tomato, red pepper flakes, cilantro, salt, pepper, olive oil, flour.

Ingredients for side dish: Asparagus, peas, butter, salt, pepper

Embellishments for main dish: I omitted the flour…A recurring theme in these EMEALS “low carb” dishes are high carb ingredients. The recipe also called for pan frying the chicken, but I went with oven cooking instead.

For the side dish, I deviated 100%.  
1) Peas are fairly high carb, so omitted them along with the butter.
2) Since the oven was on, I roasted the asparagus using my own recipe.  See comments section below.
3) I had a leftover cabbage in the fridge and made some of my CopyCat KFC coleslaw as well.

Prep: Easy.  10 minutes.

Cook time: 20-25 minutes

Comments:  The chicken was delicious, we all loved it. I can’t imagine coating it with flour though.  After all, I purchased the “low carb” plan on EMEALS.  Why not parmesan?

And of course, peas have a pretty high carb count (9 carbs/7 net for a half cup), so if you are trying to stay low on your daily carbs, asparagus alone is a much better choice (3 carbs/1 net for the same serving size).

Jabberwock’s Roasted Asparagus
3 bundles Asparagus
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp dried chili flake
Cracked pepper to taste

Trim woody bottoms off the asparagus, and lay in roasting pan.  Whisk the rest of the ingredients together, and coat asparagus.  Roast at 400 for 7-10 minutes. I just threw these in the oven 10 minutes before the breasts were done cooking.

Overall, Thumbs up.  The chicken was so delicious that I am willing to overlook the high carb ingredients.
