Gluten-Free (GF) Keto Mains
Chicken Enchilada Bake (GF, Keto, Paleo)
May 6, 2019

So, Blake was in the mood for enchiladas tonight and I happened to have some chicken on hand. The last of the chicken stockpiled in my freezer. So I whipped up a pan of chicken enchilada bake that seemed to do the trick with his craving.

If anyone knows of any great deals on free-range whole chickens, please let me in on the secret! I stock up on whole free-range chickens when I find them at Sprouts on sale. Otherwise, I don’t have a great source for free-range chicken that doesn’t break the bank.

Anyway, I came up with an “un-enchilada” recipe on the fly.
I serve this over chopped iceberg lettuce, but it would be delicious over cauliflower Spanish rice as well.

  • 3 large chicken breasts (cooked and shredded)
