Low Carb Sautéed Chicken In Buttery Vinegar

Vinegar ChickenInteresting story here.  I first made sautéed chicken in buttery vinegar somewhere in about 1993.  Back then it was with turkey medallions but my recipe is the same otherwise.  I made it over and over because not only was it fantastic, it was also very easy.  The only recipe I was able to find was Saveur Magazine’s Grilled Turkey With Cracked Pepper, Caramelized Onion, & Vinegar who gave credit to chef Mary Sue Milliken of the TV program Two Hot Tamales fame and who can remember everything?  I may have seen the recipe on the show.  I would never question the origins of this recipe and I am putting it up because it is so good.  I am subbing chicken for turkey and of course if you want to use turkey-go for it.  The cool thing is, I wasn’t thinking about low carb well over 20 years ago but sometimes…I was eating that way.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.
