This jalapeño popper chicken is seriously amazing. It’s got the holy trinity of Keto, bacon, cheese, and chicken. I mean come, on what’s not to love about this recipe. Beside the fact that it’s super delicious and you only need 5-ingredients to make this dreamy recipe a reality, it’s got a nice little kick of spice in there from the jalapeño.
Before my Keto days I always enjoyed spicy snacks… Doritos, Cheetos, Fritos, and basically any other member of the -eto’s family, especially if they were of the flaming hot variety. Most evenings after a fast-food dinner I would sit down with a bag of chips, puffs, or sticks and browse Netflix. Before I knew it the whole bag would be gone, I was like a magician for making junk food disappear. I had no idea how nutrition really affected my body at this point in my life, so I had no idea why I would sleep like crap and wake up with heartburn. I’m not talking about a little bit of heartburn that a tums would take care of either. It was so bad one night when I was still in college Lauren had to take me to the urgent care because I literally thought I was having some sort of abnormal cardiac event. Since changing my diet lifestyle I haven’t had any more issues like that, and I haven’t had the slightest touch of heartburn either, though I still consume spicy snack foods (jalapeños cheddar pork rinds) and plenty of meals that contain fresh peppers and spice.
Moving on, I feel as though there are a lot of misconceptions about protein on the Keto diet. Each individual’s protein needs may vary due to a variety of factors. Occasionally while on Keto I will increase my protein intake and my personal diet would be best described as “pumped keto” which is their term Leanne Vogel uses in her book The Keto Diet: The Complete Guide to a High-Fat Diet.
