Jalapeno Popper Chicken Casserole Keto Recipe | KetoVale

Jalapeno Popper Chicken Casserole

Chicken casserole with jalapeño is a smooth and creamy recipe with unparalleled flavor. If you are on the Keto diet, you should try this low carb version of casserole. The roasted chicken thighs, bacon and jalapeno make an unbeatable combination. It looks and tastes delicious and will make a great family dinner.

You can use chicken breasts for this recipe but we prefer chicken thighs as it will taste much better. You can buy the meat with or without skin but it needs to be boneless or you’ll have to debone the meat before adding cheese and cream mixture.

Don’t forget to serve your meal with some fresh lettuce and a crispy buffalo chicken wing.
