  • Add the chicken, bacon and green onions.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put in the fridge – preferably overnight – to let the flavors meld.**

  • Lay the halves for each pepper side by side and lay a small lettuce leaf (or two) in each half.
  • On one lettuce-lined half, lay a slice of Swiss cheese and on the other pile spoonfuls of the chicken and bacon salad.
  • Put half with the cheese onto the half with the chicken bacon salad, securing with a wooden toothpick if necessary.

Notes

*You can vary the amounts of protein and fat by changing the fat percentage of cottage cheese that you use and/or swapping out the heavy cream for your favorite keto milk.**The chicken and bacon salad needs to be very thick so that the sandwich is not overly slippery or messy to eat. If, after your salad has rested in the fridge, you think it is still too thick then add more cream (or keto milk) 1 Tbsp. at a time and mix well. You can make and serve these right away, but the chicken and bacon salad is better if it is left to meld in the fridge, preferably overnight.Our recipes may contain links to affiliate websites, and Keto Chow receives an affiliate commission for any purchases made by you on the affiliate website using such links. To see the full recipe on Cronometer, you can add Keto Chow as a friend in the “Sharing” tab if you have a Gold Cronometer Membership.
