Ingredients
  

  • 6 Chicken Wings
  • 1.5 lb Chicken Thighs skinless and boneless
  • 5 lb Cheddar Cheese sliced
  • 4 slices Bacon
  • 3 medium Jalapenos fresh
  • 2 tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 10 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1 clove Garlic minced
  • Coriander Leaves for decoration
  • 1 tbsp Hot Sauce keto-friendly, optional
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Set your oven to 350F and allow to preheat while you prepare the dish.
  • Wash the chicken wings and thighs and towel dry properly.
  • Place in a bowl and marinate with minced garlic, pepper, and salt. Set the wings and things in a baking sheet and place in the preheated oven. Allow it to bake for 40 minutes.
  • While the chicken meat is baking, set a nonstick skillet on a stove set to medium-high heat and sauté the jalapenos and sliced bacon in it. Allow the bacon fat to melt completely and let the bacon becomes golden and crisp.
  • Add mayonnaise, cream cheese, and the keto-friendly hot sauce to the bacon and jalapenos. Stir very well to make they are well combined before removing from heat.
  • Now remove the baked chicken and set aside to cool for a few minutes. Cut the chicken thigh into small pieces. Keep the chicken wings for later use.
  • Place the pieces of chicken thigh in a baking dish. Scoop several spoonfuls of the creamy bacon and jalapeno mixture and spread over the chicken. You can place sliced cheddar cheese or mozzarella (or a combination of both) on top of the chicken.
  • Place in the oven and bake again for an extra 10 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  • Remove from oven and garnish it with the chicken wings and sliced chopped coriander leaves.
  • Best served in a plate alongside lettuce salad.
