This is The Best Keto Jalapeno Popper Chicken Casserole. It is absolutely delicious and can be whipped up in no time. With Shredded Chicken, fresh jalapenos, cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Your family will love it whether they are following Keto, low carb or not.
Making this chicken casserole is similar to Chicken Bacon Ranch and Cheddar that I shared a while back. However, this version comes with a spicy kick to it. If you are a fan of jalapenos and spicy food, you will love this chicken dish. One of my favorite appetizers is jalapeno poppers and this dish tastes very similar.
I used shredded chicken to make this casserole recipe, it could also be made with diced chicken or whole breasts. Having shredded chicken breasts that I cooked in the instant pot, always comes in handy.
As you can see in the above picture, I spice up the chicken with garlic powder ,salt and pepper and paprika. This dinner is fabulous and full of flavor regardless if you are doing low carb or keto diet. That is pretty much just a bonus.
