Creamy Jalapeño Air Fried Chicken (Keto, Paleo, Whole 30)

Okay, so one of the chiles that are a staple in every Mexican house is jalapeño and I think it's also one of the most popular chiles around the world. The ideas for its use are endless; salsa, margaritas, jalapeño poppers, pickled, on nachos... well, the list goes on!


And growing up, I wasn't a fan. In fact I repelled it as much as possible because I couldn't take the spice but over the years my tolerance for chile got better and better. At the level of liking jalapeño and other interesting spicy chiles.



Of course, there are some people that are immune to the spice and they just basically shower themselves in all the sauce. That's not my case, I believe that food should be something we can enjoy instead of leaving out tastebuds numb from all the spice.



In occasion I had some of these basics in my fridge that I wanted to use, and for the double win to create a fun recipe for the blog! Creamy jalapeño chicken for the win, made in the air fryer (the obsession is so real).


Some of the ingredients:

  • Chicken Breast

  • Green Salsa

  • Pickled Jalapeño

  • Sea Salt

  • Black Pepper

  • Unsweetened Almond Milk



That's it! Super easy, and making it on the air fryer just takes things to the next level! A crispy but delicious meal. A good twist to the baked chicken, which is also good! But hey, gotta try new methods and things!



Tips on using the air fryer:

  • Preheat the air fryer.

  • There's no need to add oil (that's up to you)

  • Try with different timings

  • Don't be afraid to set up the heat a little bit higher.

I have been experimenting with my air fryer since I got it back in October of 2019, and the obsession is still so real. I really suggest you to invest in a good one because some friends don't like theirs but it's mostly because it's not a pretty good quality.



Here are some other ideas you can make on your air fryer!
