Low Carb Jalapeno Popper Chicken

March 9, 2019Laura

Since chicken is one of my favorite foods, I’m always trying to create new chicken dish recipes. I have a Jalapeno Popper Dip recipe here on the blog and used that as my inspiration for this recipe. I used pretty simple ingredients for the chicken topping: cream cheese, jalapenos (of course), sour cream, bacon and cheese. It turned out fantastic!

I baked it in the oven, so you only have to dirty up one pan and a bowl to stir together the topping mixture. The first time I made the recipe, I cooked and chopped my own bacon. I made it a second time just to make a couple of changes and didn’t have enough bacon on hand. I ended up using bagged crumbles from Costco. Either one will work, but I prefer making my own. The bacon crumbles are one of my Costco staple items for situations like this or when I’m short on time.

Both times I made this, I served it with low carb veggies. Green beans are a good option as well as a simple side salad. Cauliflower mash would be delicious too! If you give this chicken a try, I hope you enjoy!
