Keto Bacon Wrapped Chicken Thighs With Cheddar Sauce

Keto Bacon Wrapped Chicken Thighs With Cheddar Sauce


  • 4-5 Chicken Thighs boneless, raw
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 6-12 slices Bacon
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika or regular paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


  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. 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. 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. 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. 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. Add salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder to taste. Serve hot over the chicken and enjoy!
