Servings 1
  • 20 ounces Chicken Thigh (boneless)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Butter
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese (Shredded)
  • 6 Bacon (medium slice)
  1. Step 1
    Prepare the chicken thighs by laying them flat on a clean surface. Sprinkle them evenly on the exposed side with salt and pepper.
  2. Step 2
    Gently wrap each chicken thigh with bacon. Some larger pieces may require an extra half slice of bacon. Make sure all bacon ends meet on the underside of each thigh.
  3. Step 3
    Heat the olive oil in a large skillet on high heat. When the skillet is ready, place in the chicken thighs. Cook on each side for 8-10 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked through. Set the chicken aside to rest.
  4. Step 4
    In a new, small pan, melt the butter over low heat. Gently whisk in the heavy cream. Bring the liquids to a simmer, and whisk until the fats are no longer separated.
  5. Step 5
    With the sauce on a low heat and a gentle simmer, whisk in the cheddar cheese in 3-4 additions. Stir the sauce until it’s creamy and smooth. Serve hot over the chicken and enjoy!
