Ingredients
  

  • 4 slices bacon chopped
  • 6 chicken thighs boneless, skinless
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 4 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 2 small jalapeno peppers minced
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese shredded

  • Preheat the oven to 375F.
  • In a large skillet over medium, cook the chopped bacon until crisp. Remove to a plate and remove all but 1 tbsp of the grease.

  • Remove from heat and transfer the thighs to a glass or ceramic baking dish.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, whipping cream, and garlic. Spread over the chicken in the dish.
