Jalapeño Popper Chicken Casserole by u/ReverseLazarus

By: u/ReverseLazarus


2lbs cooked/shredded chicken breast

6oz shredded Mexican blend cheese

3oz diced yellow onion

4 jalapeños (sliced, about 3oz total)

7oz Philadelphia Jalapeño cream cheese

1 tablespoon chili powder

An undetermined (plentiful) amount of sea salt and garlic powder

Crispy bacon pieces (I used 3 slices, use more if you dig on bacon more than I do)

A bunch of fresh green onion to sprinkle on top before serving!

Whippin’ it up

Preheat the oven to 350.

Sautée the onion and jalapeño on the stovetop with a small splash of the oil of your choice until they are cooked and soft

Mix onion and jalapeño in a huge bowl with the chicken, cheese, cream cheese, and spices until it is thoroughly mixed (it takes a bit of you don’t let the cream cheese soften).

Add this mixture to a greased 9×11 casserole dish and sprinkle the crispy bacon pieces all over the top.

Pop it in the oven and let it cook for 25-30 minutes.

Take it out, sprinkle with diced green onion (optional), serve.

It is excellent with ranch or blue cheese drizzled on top.

I got 6 servings out of it, it is about 400 calories (high protein 🤘🏻❤️🐓) and 5g net carbs a serving.
