How to Make Keto Green Chicken Chili Bake

Once you start on this delicious chicken bake recipe, you’ll find it’s simple and easy to do.

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.

Spray a baking dish (9X13) with nonstick cooking spray.

Add salt, pepper, and a bit of garlic powder, cumin, and chili powder to both sides of the chicken breast.

Put the chicken breast in your baking dish.

Grab a bowl and mix the remeaning seasonings with cream cheese, sour cream, and green chilis.

Spread on the top of the chicken.

Top that with a bunch of shredded cheese.

Pop in the oven and bake for 60 minutes or until the chicken has an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

Once done, top with your favorite choice or garnish.

Tips For Making This Low Carb Green Chicken Chili Bake

While this chicken recipe is pretty straight-forward, there are a few tips to keep in mind.

How do I know it’s cooked enough?

You’re going to want to be certain that your chicken is cooked to at least 165 degrees. Using a meat thermometer is the best way to verify that chicken is safe and ready to eat.

Can you prep this recipe and bake it later?

You can. You can make this recipe right up to the point of putting it into the oven, and then save that for the final step.

I wouldn’t make this more than a day in advance for the fridge (but you can always prep and have an easy freezer meal ready to go, too!).

What are some fun topping ideas to put on this chicken bake recipe?

I’m all about the toppings. Some topping ideas include:

  • more cheese
  • onions
  • black, green, or kalamata olives
  • sour cream
  • diced jalapenos
  • salsa
  • crumbled bacon

And the list could go on and on! Whatever toppings you like you can add to your own piece.

What should I serve this with?

Great question! My kids love it over this easy Instant Pot Basmati Rice or with nachos on the side. It also pairs well with crispy roasted potatoes or smashed potatoes.

We also served it with a fresh salad whenever possible (which keeps it keto for mom, so that’s a huge plus!)

Is there a lot of prep needed?

You really don’t have to prep a lot of ingredients for this recipe, which is great! Just do a double-check that you have all the ingredients on hand before getting started.
