Buffalo Chicken Jalapeno Popper Casserole

Another great recipe I adapted from http://www.ruled.me.com.  It makes 6 servings and contains 2.5 net carbs each.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6 chicken thighs (skinless and deboned)
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 3 medium jalapenos (de-seed if you aren’t a fan of spicy)
  • 12 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup Frank’s Red Hot sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.  Season chicken thighs well with salt and pepper.  Bake chicken thighs in a casserole dish for 35-40 minutes (depending on size of thighs).
  2. Once your timer hits 20 minutes, start on the filling.  Chop 6 slices of bacon into pieces and put into a pan over medium heat.  Once bacon is mostly crisped, add jalapenos (chopped) into the pan.
  3. Once jalapenos are soft and cooked, add cream cheese, mayo and hot sauce to the pan.  Mix together and season to taste.
  4. Remove chicken from the oven then spread cream cheese mixture on it, then top with cheddar and mozzarella cheese.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes at 400F.  Broil for 3-5 minutes to finish.  Optional:  Top with extra jalapenos before you broil.
