Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 30 min
Ready In: 40 min


¾ Chicken Thigh: 20 oz, boneless, raw (380g)

¾ Salt: ¼ teaspoon (2g or 0.05 oz)

¾ Black Pepper: ½ tsp (1g or 0.04 oz)

¾ Olive Oil: 2 teaspoon (9g or 0.32 oz)

¾ Butter: 1-½ tablespoon (21g or 0.75 oz)

¾ Heavy Cream: 1 cup (238g or 8.4 oz)

¾ Shredded Cheddar Cheese: 1 cup, shredded (113g or 3.99 oz)

¾ Bacon: 6 medium slice (48g or 1.69 oz) 

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   

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!
