Air Fryer Jalapeno Popper Hasselback Chicken is a super spicy low carb meal with tons of cheese and bacon. Only 5 ingredients are needed to make this gluten-free, keto friendly meal.
In a medium bowl, stir together bacon, cream cheese, jalapenos, and 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese.
Cut about 6 slits across the top of the chicken, being careful not to cut all the way through.
Stuff the cream cheese mixture into the slits.
Place chicken in air fryer basket and set to Air Fry at 350 for 15 minutes. With 1 minute of time left, open the Air Fryer and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Air Fry for the last minute.
The chicken should be done after 15 minutes, but cooking time can vary between Air Fryer brands. Cook a few minutes longer if necessary.
You can use finely diced fresh jalapeno instead of pickled jalapeno.
