Air fryer cheesy bacon jalapeno Hasselback chicken. This recipe is the perfect addition to any busy schedule, saving time on meal prep while providing an exciting flavorsome dish. It has one carbohydrate, is a great protein source, and is surprisingly easy to make.

It can be hard to make sure your air fryer is cooked enough, so it might help to check after about 12 minutes. It’s too bad this recipe can’t be ruined! This air fryer Hasselback chicken is too amazing!

If you’re craving bacon and you don’t have time to cook it or if you have dietary restrictions, simply freeze diced cooked bacon or crumble cooked bacon into bits. You could add some onion powder or minced fresh onion to the bacon and cheese too. There are a lot of different variations on this creamy chicken recipe

Make sure you track the time after slicing the bread because you want your chicken to be crispy on both sides. Chicken thighs can take longer to cook but breasts have less fat, so overcooking is less likely.
