Update: This recipe is now available on YouTube as well: Lazy Keto Chicken
So the wife was out of town and I had no motivation to make anything. I didn’t have a meal planned and eating out / fast food is a lot of work on keto. Enter Lazy Keto Chicken! In the past I’ve made complicated dishes like stuffed chicken, but I was thinking, could I make it even easier? Its a lot of work to cut a perfect pocket into a piece of chicken and perfectly wrap it in bacon. So instead, I decided to just layer it all and see how it went.
And then its done! I just cooked it at 350 degrees in my toaster / convection oven until it is done. If it looks done but the bacon is not yet complete, I throw broil on for a bit.

My convection oven is my best friend. Whenever I am making a dinner for just one or two I always use this over my full sized oven. Meals like Lazy Keto Chicken were designed for this thing, the hot air cooks stuff super fast and uses less energy.

You really only need one good knife. This one is it. America’s Test Kitchen rated it the number one budget knife!
Non-slip Cutting Board
Let’s face it, keto involves a lot of prep. You’ve got to slice all those vegetables, cut up all that meat and not just any old board will do. Make sure to grab yourself a nice non-slip one for the kitchen!
