  • Total: 45 m
  • Servings:


  • 4 slices bacon chopped
  • 6 chicken thighs boneless, skinless
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 4 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 2 small jalapeno peppers minced
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese shredded


  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. In a large skillet over medium, cook the chopped bacon until crisp. Remove to a plate and remove all but 1 tbsp of the grease.
  3. Pat the chicken thighs dry and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper. Add the chicken thighs to the skillet and cook until nicely browned, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  4. Remove from heat and transfer the thighs to a glass or ceramic baking dish.
  5. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, whipping cream, and garlic. Spread over the chicken in the dish.
  6. Sprinkle with the jalapeno and cheddar cheese, then sprinkle with the chopped bacon. Bake about 20 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the chicken is cooked through.
