This jalapeno popper chicken casserole has the perfect amount of heat from jalapenos, crunchy salty kick from bacon and a creamy texture from a special sauce and spaghetti squash. This recipe is dairy free, paleo, keto and low carb and great for those following a round of Whole30. 



For Casserole:

  • 2 cups Shredded Chicken Breast, cooked
  • 2 medium Jalapenos, seeded and diced
  • 8 pieces Bacon, cooked + chopped
  • 2 Eggs, whisked
  • 6 cups Spaghetti Squash, cooked

For Cream Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Dried Chives
  • 1 tbsp Dried Parsley
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Dill
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder


For Cream Sauce:

For Casserole:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350
  2. In a large bowl add cooked spaghetti squash, shredded chicken, chopped bacon, 2 eggs and cream sauce.
  3. Stir until everything is fully combined.
  4. Pour casserole mixture into a 9X13 greased baking pan and press it down until it is one even layer.
