These Alabama White Sauce Chicken Sheet Pan Nachos are easy to make, taste delicious and can be made regular, paleo or keto/low carb for the ultimate game day recipe.
Did you go see Avengers Endgame this weekend? To be honest, I’ve only seen a handful of them but this past weekend I went and saw Captain Marvel because some of my friends wanted to and somehow that ended up in us deciding to watch all of the movies and then Endgame so I guess I’m busy for the next five months or so.
Thankfully, movie time also means snack time. At least in my life. And there’s no better snack, or meal, than nachos.
I appreciate any good nacho and I always think it’s fun to keep things fresh and interesting with new flavor combinations. I’ve been super into the Alabama White Sauce from Lillie’s Q and figured it’d be the perfect addition to some chicken nachos!
Spoiler alert: these are delicious.
In the recipe below, I’m going to give you options to make these regular, paleo or keto/low carb. Because I don’t think eating on a “diet” or eating a specific type of way should keep you from the joy that is the nacho. You should always be able to fit the food you love into whatever diet works best for you. That’s my motto and I’m sticking to it.
So let’s buckle up, enjoy the ride, and more importantly, enjoy these nachos.
Alabama White Sauce Chicken Sheet Pan Nachos
- 2 chicken breasts boneless skinless OR 2 cups already cooked chicken (can be breasts or thighs)
- 1/2-3/4 cup Lillie’s Q Alabama White Sauce plus more for topping
- Chips See notes for regular, paleo and keto options
- Cheese I used chihuahua, other good options would be Monterey Jack, cheddar or a Mexican cheese blend
- 1/2 cup black beans optional, I didn’t use any
Favorite toppings of choice
- Pictured: pickled red onions green onions, cilantro
- Other topping ideas: avocado crema, sour cream, jalapeños, olives, diced cabbage, pimentos
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
To Make Chicken:
If you need to cook the chicken, simply season with salt and pepper. Add in a skillet or on the grill and cook until it reaches 165° internal
To put together Nachos:
Once chicken is cooked (or if it’s already donmix together with Alabama White Sauce, using 1/2-3/4 cup depending on how saucy you want it. Set aside.
Layer chips in a single layer on a sheet pan and top with cheese and chicken plus beans (if using). You can continue to add layers, if desired.
Put in oven for 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted. You can broil for an extra 3-5 minutes for the cheese to get golden brown and bubbly, if desired.
Once out of the oven, top with your favorite toppings. I used pickled red onions, green onions, cilantro and more Alabama white sauce.
For the chicken, this is a great time to use up some leftover chicken that doesn’t have a ton of seasoning. A rotisserie chicken would work well, as would shredded chicken or any other chicken you have.
