The Best Baked Chicken Salad Recipe


The classic Southern hot chicken salad has a new keto-friendly version! You won't miss the crushed potato chip topping thanks to everyone's favorite: bacon!

First, combine the dressing ingredients. Don't worry if the cream cheese still has some lumps: they'll melt  away during baking.

Stir in the almonds, bacon, celery, onions, water chestnuts, Parmesan cheese, and chicken.

Spread the chicken salad mixture in a baking pan or divide between individual baking ramekins. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and bake at 400 F until bubbly, 15-25 minutes depending on the size of the baking dishes..

You can also bake it in zucchini boats.

Or bake it in avocado halves!

No matter how you serve it, you're going to want to make the keto-friendly hot chicken salad again!
