Rich and cheesy!
I was determined to hammer out this low carb jalapeno popper chicken after chatting with my friend, Kristy . . .
Kristy told me she needed low-carb snacks and dinner ideas that didn't take forever to make . . . and that didn't include cauliflower or shrimp.
A reasonable request.
Kristy just started a new job -- on top of being a mom to an energetic 3 year old, wife to a military man and doggie mamma to a gigantic, lovable Golden Retriever.
She doesn't have the luxury of time when it comes to getting dinner on the table, sooooo
I started by testing out a recipe I found at Aunt Bee's Recipes. It was delicious but I had to make a few changes -- fresh jalapenos make a world of difference.
I also changed the cooking technique for the chicken.
This dish is low-carb comfort food! And it doesn't take long to make at all!

One of the extra benefits is that while it's baking I have time to tidy the kitchen, set the table . . .
. . . and pour a glass of wine.
If you're cooking for someone who doesn't appreciate the low-carb aspect of this dish, whip a handful of tortilla chips at them to crumble over the top.
This is even a great dinner party main course.
Serve it up in a gorgeous casserole.
I'm loving Polish pottery at the moment. I have a few pieces (thank you, Alyssa and Jackie!). I get them here in Italy for a semi-decent price, but I've found much more affordable options on Amazon. There are several to choose from, but I think this Polish Pottery Baker is gorgeous. (Affiliate link)
What I like best is that the Polish pottery patterns can be mixed and matched.
Jeff and I are headed to Prague over Thanksgiving weekend. I'm hoping to pick up a few more pieces
And if you need more low carb dinner ideas -- I've got a couple for you to try:
Eggplant Parmesan is a delicious low-carb option. Skip the side of bread and serve yourself another portion -- it's that good!
Also this Grilled Marinated Flank Steak. Really easy!
