Jalapeno Popper Chicken Casserole

Jalapeno popper chicken casserole

This was spicy, creamy, and wonderful. Everything I crave when I want comfort food. My mouth like it more than my stomach the next day but well worth it.

I got this off a reddit post from r/ketorecipes

Time: 1hr 20min

Effort Level: Low. You need to be able to chop and shred

Amount: 6-8 servings? I kind of pigged out on this so I’m not sure what it should be. If you like it as much as I did plan on 4 servings.

You need this:

  1. 3 chicken breasts
  2. 6 or more slices of bacon
  3. 4-5 jalapenos – sliced
  4. 12oz cream cheese
  5. 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  6. 4-6oz shredded cheddar
  7. 1/4 cup Frank’s Red Hot
  8. Salt and pepper to taste

Do this:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Line a pan with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick spray
  3. Salt and pepper the chicken breasts and place on pan
  4. Cook for ~40mins or until chicken is 165F
  5. While chicken is cooking, chop the bacon and fry in a pan over medium heat.
  6. Once the bacon is almost done add all but one jalapeno to pan and cook until softened.
  7. To the pan add the cream cheese, mayo, and frank’s red hot. Mix together.
  8. Remove pan from heat.
  9. Remove chicken from oven and shred apart.
  10. Place shredded chicken in casserole dish (9x11ish)
  11. To the chicken add the jalapeno mixture and most of the cheddar cheese and mix thoroughly.
  12. Top with remaining cheddar cheese and raw jalapenos.
  13. Bake at 400F for 15 minutes.
  14. Optional – Broil for 3-5 minutes to crisp up.
  15. ENJOY!
