Whole30 Recipe: Jalapeño Popper Chicken Stuffed Baked Potatoes

In my first week of Whole30, I found this recipe for Jalapeño Popper Chicken Stuffed Baked Potatoes by Brittany of @SmithFamilyKitchen and tweaked it a bit to fit what I had in my kitchen. And let me tell you, it was delish and so quick and easy.

My plate looks like a complete mess but it was so good.

The final product.

My tweaks:

  1. I only used two chicken tenderloins since I was the only one eating it. I seasoned them with sea salt, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and chili powder to keep the flavor.
  2. I don’t have any compliant mayo so I subbed an avocado instead. I spritzed with lime so that way I could have leftovers tomorrow without the avocado being too brown. I had the leftovers the next day on cauliflower rice and lettuce.
  3. I also forgot to get a red onion at the store this week so I just used a white one.
  4. Added Trader Joe’s “Salsa Autentica” as a topping.
  5. I didn’t do this, but I would add more bacon next time. It brought out a good flavor and I love jalapeño poppers. Without the cheese I wanted more bacon!

See below for my step by step meal. I kept the seeds in so it would spice up the dish. I like spicy foods.


Two Ingredient Pancakes (a review)

There are some recipes that you see online and wonder if you could make, but it seems daunting. Like, “I could never figure that out.” Well friends, this is NOT one of those times. I found this recipe on The Kitchn and knew that I could not possibly ruin it. And guess what? I WAS RIGHT!

The two ingredients are: eggs & a banana. That’s it. All you gotta do is mush up the banana and scramble the eggs and mix the two together. Then scoop it out and make as you would with regular pancakes.

So, I would recommend using this recipe, especially if you are doing some kind of paleo diet. Also if you are trying to eliminate flour or sugar from your diet. The texture is a little spongey and fluffy, but SUPER BANANAEY at the same time. You probably couldn’t ruin these either. I’m just saying.
