Yes, a shell made out of chicken! I wanted to make a no-carb taco shell and came up with this recipe and it's oh so tasty! Another plus is that your protein is already in the crust. Keto- friendly and gluten free. We topped ours with lettuce, onion, tomato, cheese, avocado, and salsa.

  • Drain the canned chicken thoroughly, getting as much moisture out as possible. Spread chicken on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until dried, about 10 minutes.

  • Transfer chicken to a bowl. Increase oven temperature to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). Mix eggs, Cheddar cheese, and taco seasoning into the chicken.

  • Scoop 4 even mounds of the mixture onto the same baking sheet. Flatten into tortilla-sized circles.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set, 8 to 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Use any variety of Cheddar cheese you prefer.

I cooked this for my Husband who just started the keto diet. I prepared it as written & everybody in the family enjoyed it. It's a good taco shell substitute. It's not as hard as a hard taco shell but not as soft as a soft flour tortilla either. Consistency is somewhere between the two. Thanks! I will make this again. Read More

I was a bit skeptical at first. Once I made it it was absolutely delicious and our family loved it. I would just add a touch more of the taco seasoning other than that it was like eating real Mexican tacos. The shells are so flexible it shocked me but just so good Read More
