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.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • 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.
