Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family Classic So easy to make and so delicious. The cook time is perfect, but I do like to add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper and put in some diced up jalapeños for a little extra flavor, as well as a smidge of cabbage for some texture and crunch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I love this so much! It’s whole family friendly. My daughter doesn’t always enjoy my keto life (she’s 17) but she’s already packed left overs to take to school tomorrow. This was so easy! Also used my hand mixer to shred the chicken thank you TikTok !!!!I got around 8 servings out of this though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great keto friendly recipe This is great if you’re doing a keto/low carb diet. You can serve it over a sakad, I use extreme wellness low carb wraps or even low carb bread. It’s great hot or cold and in a pinch I just use rotisserie chicken and a pound of cream cheese with the hidden valley ranch seasoning n a few drops of Texas Pete hot sauce. It’s so much quicker than slow cooking, but either method tastes great.
