Chicken with Creamy Mushroom Sauce and Sauteed Kale

by Lauren Allen on Jun 20, 2022

Did you think that PCOS-friendly dinners had to be boring and bland? Because they don’t! 

This chicken with creamy mushroom sauce and sautéed kale is bursting with flavor but is also a great balanced meal since it’s filled with protein, leafy greens, and healthy fats, and fiber. 


One of the main staples in a PCOS diet is to keep your blood sugar balanced, since unbalanced blood sugars fuel insulin resistance, which is one of the most common underlying causes of PCOS. The other nutrient-dense, anti inflammatory ingredients in this dish help combat chronic inflammation, another one of the root causes of PCOS. 


Meal prep hack: Double this recipe and freeze half of it for an easy, healthy dinner or lunch on when you don’t have time to spend in the kitchen!
