Directions

1. To cook this jalapeño popper chicken casserole recipe: Preheat your oven to 375˚F (190ºC). Lay shredded cooked chicken in a casserole dish. Season with garlic powder, paprika, and pepper.

2. Whisk together heavy cream, cream cheese, and chicken stock. Spread the mixture evenly over shredded chicken.

3. Wash the jalapeño peppers and cut the tops off. Remove the seeds and stems if you want it milder, or leave some if you want more spicy. Cut the peppers into strips and lay them on top of the cream cheese. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese on top.

4. Bake the chicken casserole for 20 minutes or until bubbly and hot. Remove from oven 5 minutes before cooking is complete and sprinkle with bacon; then return for the remaining cooking time. Garnish the jalapeño chicken casserole with fresh chopped parsley. Enjoy!

Tips for the Jalapeño popper chicken casserole

  • As some of our readers advised, you can dice the Jalapeño instead of just slicing them lengthwise.
  • Serve your jalapeño chicken casserole warm on a bed of cauliflower rice, with a side salad, sautéed spinach, or veggies like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, or these super delicious garlic butter sautéed green beans. For non-Keto and low-carb of potatoes, veggies, or a baked potato.
  • This jalapeño popper chicken casserole recipe is naturally gluten-free, low carb, and keto-friendly.
  • If bacon is not your thing (seriously?) but you still want a crisp, crunchy topping, sprinkle your chicken casserole with crushed pork rind. For those not on a Keto diet, breadcrumbs or Panko are both great options.

What other readers say about this jalapeno popper chicken casserole recipe

“So good and easy to make.” – Marilee

“So good my husband loved it! I boiled the jalapenos first so they weren’t so well done I’ve learned from the past from cooking bacon-wrapped poppers before!” – Monique

“Made this tonight. Was worried that the family wouldn’t like the spice so I chopped 2 big jalapenos and sauteed them in the leftover bacon fat and mixed them in with the cream cheese. Very good. It was a huge hit! They all loved it.” – Carol

“Loved this! When I was cooking the chicken I threw the halved jalapenos in with the chicken so they would soften. Once softened I large diced the jalapenos and added it to the cream sauce. I think I had less than 2 lbs chicken so mine made an 8×8 pan but the amount of sauce was perfect! Even my 2 year old loved this dish. We will for sure make this again.” – Chelsea

“So I finally tried this recipe and I have to say it came out pretty tasty. I decided to follow the recommendations and slice the jalapeños and I think that really helped. I put some jasmine rice with it and it was very filling. I also added some Cayenne powder for a little extra kick. Thanks for the recipe!!” – Latavia

    I mixed the cream cheese, heavy cream mixture with the cheddar cheese and paprika. I put that mixture on the bottom of a Pyrex casserole dish (smaller than a 9x13). I fried a few slices of bacon and then fried the sliced jalapeños. After removing the jalapeño’s, I fried the rest of the bacon. I put the jalapeños on top of the chicken mixture and topped it with panko bread crumbs then drizzled melted butter over the top. Baked as directed. Delicious!

    Definitely a favorite of mine and make it once every two weeks. So glad a dear friend turned me into this site. I have made many things and all easy and delicious. Unfortunately, I’m the only one that likes it super spicy so I try to put more jalapeños on one end of the casserole than the other. However, sometimes they dig in before I can tell them so their mouths are burning while I’m secretly adding more jalapeños to my serving. And yeah I found a nice HOT jar of crispy jalapeños and they are amazing. I’ve even mixed those with fresh. I like texture. Also foe those who live with others who don’t care about carbs, the sweetness of a Spanish rice pares perfectly with the heat of the casserole…

    This continues to be one of our favorites & an easy, go-to dinner. I have tweaked it a bit for our tastes, using diced green chiles instead of jalapeños since we like the flavor of green chile better. I also add 1/2 tsp of onion powder & tonight I added a little cumin too. To make it easier I use rotisserie chicken from our freezer & mix the sauce, add the shredded chicken & chiles to the bowl of sauce & mix it all up. Transfer 1/2 to your greased baking dish, top with 1/2 cheese, put in remaining chicken mix, top with remaining cheese. Sometimes if I have some leftover little keto tortilla chip shards I will stir those in too so that it is more like King Ranch Chicken.

    This recipe is delish! I think next time I will make a little more of the cream cheese mixture and stir the chicken and peppers into it so you get more sauce in every bite. For those who has issues with the sauce being too thin, use heavy cream and really whisk it, almost like you’re making whipped cream. Mine came out perfect!

    This was so good! I’m new to cooking so this was pretty easy for me. I actually liked the jalapeños with a little crunch. Great dish for someone new in the kitchen.

    This had a great flavor. I added more cream cheese because my mixture ended up a little runny. If I do it again, I will roast the peppers a little before and would chop them up as others have recommended. It was delicious with a crisp green salad with avocado and tomato.

    This recipe is SO good! So excited to have leftovers for lunch this week 😋. After seeing the other comments about crunchy peppers, I opted for my jar of sliced jalapeños I had in the fridge. I just laid down a nice even layer. I also used about twice as much cheddar, so that the top was covered. This was beyond good, thank you so much for this yummy recipe!

    I made this casserole last night and it was delicious! I did add extra cream cheese and extra cheddar cheese. I also largely diced the jalapeños and sautéed them in the bacon grease before I added them to the casserole. Another thing I added that made a huge difference in flavor was cooked chorizo. I added the chorizo to the cream cheese mixture and it was FIRE! I sprinkled some fresh diced tomatoes and green onion on top and it was so so good. Will make again!

    I've made this a few times now and it's always delicious. This time I chopped the jalapenos and cooked them in 1-2 tbspn of the bacon grease as someone previously mentioned. It was delicious.

    This recipe is easy to make, for me that's a plus. This recipe has a lot of flavor, giving the jalapenos give it that extra punch that sets this meal off. I give this recipe two thumbs up.

  • New Mexican green chili but they call me 🔥

    2021-03-29 13:05:31

    I substituted the jalapeños for chopped New Mexican green chilies. I guess any kind of green chili would do if you can’t get your hands on in New Mexican green chili.😂 I’ve also done it with whole roasted green chilies, cut in half lengthwise which was delicious. The jalapeños are crispy unless they’re roasted beforehand. I added a little less heavy cream and topped it with avocado after baking.

    I have made this recipe three times now the first time I just sliced the jalapenos and cooked it for the 20 minutes and the pepper still came out crunchy. The second time I made it I follow the suggestions and I dice the jalapenos but they still came out crunchy. The third time I made it I dice the jalapenos and sauteed them so then they were soft once they were done baking. But each time I've made it it always comes out soupy. I love this recipe I just wish it wasn't so soupy

  • Linda

    Delicious! I diced jalapeños and used half and half since I don’t have heavy cream. So good I wanted to lick the plate.

  • Angie

    This is both easy and delicious. At first I followed directions. Then I modified it by cutting the Jalapenos as other suggested. I also did a double layer of cheese and sauce to make it "cheesier". Turned out perfect! Thank you for the suggestion.

    Oh my was this ever awesome!!! I put leftover rice mixed with cilantro on the bottom and avocado on top for serving, it’s def a keeper recipe. I also sliced up the jalapeño into smaller pieces.

    This recipe is amazing! I chopped the jalapeno instead of doing strips. It was delicious over rice.
