(low carb, keto, gluten free)


Units Scale
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small bite-sized pieces (I get my organic, free-range chicken here)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 1/4 cups salsa verde, store-bought or (my recipe here)

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
