Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper, then place in a greased 13×9 casserole dish. Bake 30-35 minutes, depending on the size of the breast (this will have another 15 minutes of cooking time).

Step 2

While chicken is baking, in a skillet, fry bacon pieces until crispy. Remove bacon to a bowl. Add chopped onions and saute until tender (3 minutes). Remove from heat and add the cooked bacon back to the skillet along with jalapenos, cream cheese, mayonnaise, cheddar and Parmesan cheese. Mix until well combined.

Step 3

Remove chicken from oven. Spread jalapeno-cheese mixture all over top of each cooked chicken breast until well covered.

FOR THE CRUMB TOPPING MIXTURE


Step 4

Mix together the crushed pork skins, Parmesan cheese and melted butter. Sprinkle on top of jalapeno popper topped chicken. Bake until the tops are lightly browned, about 15 minutes. SO GOOD!

This was so delicious! I doubled the whole recipe to make enough for a crowd at camp. The chicken was extra tender and I love that it is low carb and fabulous too!
