On my diet, I couldn’t have the flour or corn tortillas in the baked chicken enchilada recipe because I was watching my carb intake.

However…. I just couldn’t get those cravings out of my head! And this is how this super easy and super delicious Baked Enchilada Chicken was born.

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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 5 stars
    I’ve made this a few times, and I love how simple, yet delicious it is! I actually kind of crave this recipe! Yum!

  4. 5 stars
    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.

  5. 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?

  6. Looking at the pictures I see you topped it. What all did you top it with?

  7. 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!

  8. 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!

  9. 5 stars
    I made this last night. So yummy!!!! I am totally adding this to my rotation of dinners. Not spicy at all in case you were wondering. I wasn’t sure because I don’t think I have used the green enchilada sauce before. We loved this!!

  10. The chicken can add some water and it can vary between batches. Maybe just try to add less enchilada sauce next time. Good luck and I’m glad it still tasted well!

  11. 5 stars
    This is so delicious! I added a little more of the spices and more of the green sauce. My picky husband loved it! Thanks for sharing this recipe! ?

  12. 4 stars
    I followed the directions exactly but mine turned out really watery. Anyone else have this? It was still really good, just wondering what I did wrong?

  13. 5 stars
    Thank you, thank you, thank you. This recipe was so easy and delicious. My son and husband said it is a keeper after 1 bite.

  14. 5 stars
    Can I use frozen chicken breasts for this? Will it change the cooking time? Thanks, can’t wait to try this.

  15. 5 stars
    I love this recipe! Thank you for sharing it.
    I also have made a similar recipe using red enchilada sauce and cheddar cheese instead, and I add a small amount of diced onion and black olives. It reminds me of my mom’s chicken enchilada casserole minus the corn tortillas.

  16. 5 stars
    This recipe was so easy to prep and was a hit with the whole family! I will definately share this recipe!

  17. 5 stars
    this is delish. I used the recipe exactly with the exception of more green sauce. Why? Because I love it. Ez PZ and wonderful, a keeper for sure. Thank you

  18. Can’t wait to try this! I love green enchilada sauce and, of course, meals that bake up fast. Sharing this plus adding the ingredients to my grocery list!
