Creamy Poblano Chicken - Keto and Low Carb

Dinner in under 30 minutes that is healthy and packed with flavor!  I roast a poblano pepper and add it to this wonderfully creamy sauce.  Baby bella mushrooms are also a nice addition and are loaded with potassium!  Smoked paprika reinforces that smoky flavor from the roast poblano pepper.
