How to make low carb baked enchilada chicken:
Ok let’s get started with how to make this easy keto chicken recipe!
First preheat oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Then spray a 9×13 baking dish with non stick spray (this will make clean up easier). Next place the chicken in the bottom of the pan.
Then season the chicken with the garlic salt and chili powder. Next pour the can of Green chili enchilada sauce over the chicken.
Then bake the chicken at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Finally top the chicken with the shredded jack cheeses and broil for a minute until cheese is melted.
Serve with your favorite sides including our Spanish rice or our homemade refried beans or black beans. Of course, only serve with these sides if you are not following a low carb or keto diet.
The best toppings with this Baked Enchilada Chicken!
You can really change up the flavor of this baked chicken recipe just with the toppings that you choose.

Just a heads up, Las Palmas Green Enchilada sauce is not gluten free! If you go to the website they do use wheat in their spice. I learned this the hard way when I had a reaction. La Victoria Green Enchilada sauce is gluten free. Other than that recipe looks yummy!
I found this recipe on Pinterest, and it instantly become a family favorite. It is so easy to make and kid friendly. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
Looking at the pictures I see you topped it. What all did you top it with?
I’m so glad you loved it!
My family isn’t a fan of the green enchilada sauce. Do you think we’d get the same results with the red enchilada sauce?
It will be a different flavor but I think it would still be delicious!
I just made this tonight and it truly delicious and so easy. I butterflied 3 large chicken breasts and used 1 can of Hatch GF green enchilada sauce and it was perfect. I topped with shredded pepper jack because we like spice. Make this. You won’t regret it.
Thank you so much Pat!
I’ve made this a few times, and I love how simple, yet delicious it is! I actually kind of crave this recipe! Yum!
Looks good and if you want this Keto use chicken thighs 41/58 protein/fat instead and chicken breast is 72/28 protein/fat on Keto since you want good fat and less protein which if you eat to much protein it stores as far in your body. Also no rice, use cauliflower or broccoli to make your spanish rice or use both which is really good.
Thanks for sharing Kevin!
I made this tonight for dinner and it was scrumptious! I would positively make this for a potluck. This recipe is definitely a keeper so I will print it to put in my cookbook. Thanks!
