Keto Jalapeño Popper Chicken & Bacon Bites


Step 1Preheat the oven to 180 °C/ 355 °F (fan assisted), or 200 °C/ 400 °F (conventional).

Step 2Cut the 12 slices of bacon in half to get a total of 24 bacon strips. Place the chicken and 9 strips of bacon in a food processor.

Step 3Blitz until the chicken and bacon are minced. You'll need 15 bacon strips to later wrap around the chicken bites. Option to buy ground/minced chicken and cut the bacon fine if you prefer.

Step 4Place the mixture into a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and combine well.

Step 5Roll into balls about 57 g/ 2 oz each.

Step 6Wrap 1 strip around each chicken bite. Thread onto skewers or secure with toothpicks.

Step 7Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Finish under the broiler for 2 - 3 minutes to make the bacon crispy. Option to fry in a skillet in 1 tbsp butter or oil for about 15 minutes on a medium heat until crispy and cooked through.

Step 8Serve with Low-Carb Ketchup, store-bought or Homemade Mustard, Quick Garlic Mayonnaise or Low-Carb Ranch Dressing. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days or freezer for 2 months.
