Hunters Chicken

Hunters Chicken

Reduced carb meals should be simple to make and this recipe fits the bill!

I remember first having hunters chicken at a lovely pub many years ago.

It was cheesy, covered in a tangy BBQ sauce and I can’t believe I’ve waited all this time to make this myself!

This lean version is something you’ll have again and again it’s that easy to make!

This is one of the many recipes I created when I followed the 90 Day Plan by The Body Coach. Simply use your plans ingredient amounts instead of those shown in the recipe. There are 220 Create Your Own (CYO) friendly recipes in my app and on this website.

Ingredients for 1 serving

267 g chicken breast
52 g peppers, sliced
46 g onions, sliced
39 g cheddar cheese, grated
6 g olive oil
46 g reduced fat sour cream
1 tbsp Waldens Farm thick & spicy bbq sauce
149 g spinach
salt and pepper


  • Preheat your grill to its highest setting and line a baking sheet with non stick foil.
  • Add the olive oil to a frying pan and put on a medium heat.
  • Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with a little salt and add it to the pan and cover with a lid.
  • After a few minutes turn the chicken over and cover with the lid until the chicken is cooked through (it will be firm to the touch when ready).
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and place it on the baking sheet.
  • Top the chicken with the BBQ sauce and grated cheddar.
  • Place the chicken under the grill for a couple of minutes to melt and colour the cheese.
  • Place the frying pan back onto the heat and add the peppers and onion.
  • Allow the peppers and onion to soften for a few minutes before adding the spinach to the pan to wilt.
  • Give the vegetables a good mix to combine them and remove them from the heat when they are cooked to your liking.
  • Add everything to your plate and add a dollop of sour cream, eat!!!

Recipe Notes

  • Adding the salt to the chicken will help the surface to turn crispy in the pan whilst remaining juicy.
  • If you feel the pan with the vegetables is a little dry when you add the spinach to wilt, add a tablespoon of water instead of oil as this will help the spinach to wilt.
  • For those on 2018 BC plans, Walden Farm sauces may still be used as they don’t contain any calories or add any nutritional value, just flavour.
