How to Make Pepper Jack Crack Chicken

Get all your ingredients out and get ready to prep your dish. I find that when I get things in order I can really toss things together fast and easily.

Start by mixing up your softened cream cheese, green onions, pepper jack cheese, seasonings and part of the bacon. Get it mixed up until it is a creamy consistency.

What To Serve With This Dish

Personally we reach for a vegetable to go with it. Or you could even do a side salad or cauliflower rice to stick to a lower carb diet.

Any type of side dish works or you could easily have this be a meal in one if you prefer.

How to Store Leftovers

You will want to store any leftovers you have in the fridge. They will store for up to three days or so. When you want to heat up leftovers in the microwave or place in oven.

If you reheat in the oven cover with aluminum foil to help prevent the chicken from drying out as it reheats.

You will find due to the cream cheese and such this will not freeze and thaw properly. The texture of the creamy base will in a sense curdle.

Meal Prep

Use your leftovers to meal prep for a few days during the week. I buy single serve containers and use that to pack for lunches! Whether you are using this for leftovers for your child, yourself or your spouse everyone will love it.
