Loaded Baked Chicken

This recipe is Keto, however its also perfect for those who are not on keto, but enjoy that warm comfort food feeling. I typically make a side salad with it, or just do the chicken by itself.

Serving Size: 2-3 Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

-6 Oz Cream Cheese (for keto full fat)

-2 full chicken breasts cut in fourths, or 8 chicken tenders

-1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese

-8 Strips regular cut bacon (I prefer hickory smoke)

-1-2 Tbsp Creole Seasoning (if you dont have it on hand its essentially paprika, salt and pepper)

-2 tbsp olive oil (If you’re not keto, and don’t want the extra calories or fat, spraying the pan with cooking spray will work fine)

Directions: Preheat oven to 400 Degrees

  1. Cook bacon and set aside, crumble it when ready.
  2. Put 2 tbsp olive oil (Or cooking spray) and cover the bottom of a casserole dish. I use the glass ones.
  3. Arrange uncooked chicken breasts or tender next to each other in the pan
  4. Season with creole seasoning (Paprika, salt, pepper)
  5. Cut cream cheese into 8 pieces and place them on each tender, or section of chicken breast.
  6. Add crumbled bacon on top of cream cheese so it covers the chicken
  7. Cover on top with the cup of cheddar cheese. Make sure it’s covering the chicken. If you’re crazy for cheese sprinkle a little extra on.
  8. Bake at 400 Degrees for about 20-25 minutes depending on thickness of chicken.
  9. Enjoy. (:
