Mexican food is a favorite of many people. They are tasteful, delicious, and come with a certain flavor that you can’t get in your regular meals.

The Keto Chicken Enchilada Bowl can be made either in a slow cooker or right on the stove. If you have the time, just add the chicken, chilies, onions, and enchilada sauce together and let it cook slowly on a slow cooker, but if not, you can get it done in a jiffy on the stove. You can also make the chicken and sauce mixture in advance and store in the freezer for later use. Whenever you need it, all you have to do is retrieve from the freezer, thaw for a while and reheat with the vegetables, and you are done!

Directions

  1. Over medium heat, cook the chicken breasts in a skillet until it turns light brown. You can cut the chicken breasts into 3 to 4 large chunks to reduce cook time.
  2. To the skillet, add enchilada sauce, water, onions, and chilies. Add some seasoning to taste. Cover the pan and reduce the heat to simmer.
  3. With the skillet covered, leave it on the stove to allow the chicken cook through, then shred the chicken.
  4. Return the shredded chicken to the sauce and allow to simmer for extra 10 minutes without covering the skillet, or until the chicken has soaked up most of the liquid.
  5. Dice your preferred toppings and prepare cauliflower rice following the instructions on the package.
