Ingredients

  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • 8 Slices Bacon

For the Sauce:

  • 4 Ounces Cream Cheese Softened
  • ½ Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • ½ Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese I use the green can variety
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Jalapeño Sliced (can use more if desired)
  • 2 Teaspoons Minced Garlic

Instructions

  • Preheat a skillet with medium heat.
  • Slice chicken breasts in half horizontally (so you should have 4 pieces of chicken).
  • Wrap two pieces of uncooked bacon around each piece of raw chicken.
  • Place bacon wrapped chicken in pan and pan fry over medium low heat for 20-25 minutes, turning several times to ensure even cooking and crispy bacon. Chicken should reach an internal temperature of 160.

Prepare Sauce:

  • In a medium bowl, mix softened cream cheese, heavy whipping cream, almond milk, parmesan cheese and onion powder.
  • When the chicken has finished cooking, remove from pan and drain bacon grease.
  • Add 2 Tablespoons butter to the pan and return to heat, scraping up pieces of bacon that are left in the pan.
  • Saute sliced Jalapeños and garlic in butter until Jalapeños are cooked through and garlic begins to lightly brown.
  • Pour prepared sauce into the pan and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until sauce has reduced a bit and begins to thicken.
  • To serve, top each piece of chicken with a generous amount of cream sauce.
