Keto Chicken Taco Shells

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Drain the canned chicken thoroughly, getting as much moisture out as possible. Spread chicken on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until dried, about 10 minutes.
  4. 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.
  5. Scoop 4 even mounds of the mixture onto the same baking sheet. Flatten into tortilla-sized circles.
  6. 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 s...
