Creamy Bacon Mushroom Chicken Thighs: Phase 3 Recipe

Phase 3 Recipe

Phase 3 Recipe / Servings: 4 / Prep Time: 25 minutes / Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 4 ounces (about 4 slices) nitrate-free turkey bacon, diced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 4 bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 8 ounces Baby Bella mushrooms, sliced (about 3 cups)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 4 cups cauliflower rice, steamed (a 16-ounce bag – or you can chop up 1 pound of cauliflower in the food processor)
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In an ovenproof skillet, cook the bacon in 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat until crisp. Transfer the cooked bacon to a plate with a slotted spoon, leaving the oil in the pan. Add another 1 tablespoon oil to the pan. Increase the heat to medium-high.
  3. Season both sides of the chicken thighs generously with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Place the chicken thighs in the skillet meaty-side down. Cook, without moving the thighs, for about 7 minutes or until the first side is nicely and evenly browned and releases easily from the pan. If the chicken sticks, continue cooking until it releases easily. Flip the thighs over.
  4. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 13 minutes or until the internal temperature of the thighs reaches 160 degrees. Carefully transfer the chicken thighs to a plate and place the skillet on the stovetop. Take care to always use a pot holder from this step forward; the handle will stay very hot.
  5. Add the mushrooms and cook on medium-high heat for about 4 minutes, or until golden brown and a bit softened, stirring only once midway. Add the garlic and sauté 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant.
  6. Add the coconut milk, thyme, and ¼ teaspoon sea salt to the skillet. Bring to a gentle boil, then immediately reduce the heat to low. Simmer for about 2 to 4 minutes, until the flavors are blended and the sauce is reduced a bit.
  7. Stir in the bacon. Taste the sauce and add more salt and pepper as desired. Return the chicken thighs to the skillet and coat with the sauce. Combine the cooked cauliflower rice and spinach, and serve with the chicken and sauce.

The Burn: Get Rid of Weight Loss Plateau in the Fast Metabolism Diet

One of the most common questions asked while in the fast metabolism diet program is, “I’m following the FMD but why am I not losing weight?” Dr. Haylie Pomroy writes a new book entitled The Burn, to answer this common problem experienced by many dieters. 

We have different stories and reasons why we want to lose weight, right? And whatever it is, most of us experience this terrible weight loss plateau that caused others to give up and feel hopeless.

Take heart. A weight loss plateau is normal. No matter how diligent you are in following the fast metabolism diet, from time to time you’ll fall off the wagon. If you’re stuck, Haylie Pomroy’s “The Burn” can help!

The 3-day Burn for Inflammation (I-Burn), 5-day Burn for Digestive Dysfunction (D-Burn), and 10-day Burn for Hormone Imbalances (H-Burn). Now let’s dig into it one-by-one.

3-day Burn for Inflammation

  • This targets the body’s inflammatory reactions to food and flushes out toxins.

5-day Burn for Digestive Dysfunction

  • This Unblocks the body’s digestion, creating a flat belly and tighter hips and thighs.

10-day Burn for Hormone Imbalances

  • This stabilizes the body’s natural hormone production and regulatory systems.

Now, how do you know what nutrition program your body needs? Take a look at the table below.

For example, in the 3-Day I-Burn targeting Inflammation, the book suggests powerful anti-inflammatory foods like lemon, celery, parsley, pink grapefruit, wild-caught fish and healthy fats like avocado, walnuts and pine nuts.

There are also suggested I-Burn Smoothie, I-Burn soup and I-Burn tea that are medicinal, containing liver-and kidney cleansing herbs, detoxifying vegetables and energizing proteins. And the same with the 5-day D-Burn and 10-day H-Burn. Haylie Pomroy uses targeted nutrition to remove obstacles to weight loss, loosen historical fat stores, and make substantial improvements to health in less than two weeks.
