Recipe: Keto Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Bombs

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 slices bacon

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped green onions, garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are incorporated.
  3. Place the chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap or parchment paper. Use a meat mallet or rolling pin to gently pound the chicken to an even thickness, about 1/2 inch.
  4. Spoon a portion of the cream cheese mixture onto the center of each chicken breast.
  5. Carefully roll up the chicken breasts, enclosing the cream cheese mixture inside. Secure each roll with toothpicks to hold the shape.
  6. Wrap each chicken roll with two slices of bacon, covering as much of the chicken as possible.
  7. Place the bacon-wrapped chicken bombs on a baking sheet or in a baking dish.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the bacon is crispy.
  9. If desired, you can broil the chicken bombs for an additional 2-3 minutes to further crisp up the bacon.
  10. Remove the toothpicks before serving.
