  • 5 De-boned De-Skinned Chicken Thighs Cut in roughly 1 inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp bacon fat or grape seed oil See Step 2 - either left over bacon fat or fresh
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 50 g pecorino or parmigiano regiano (or another strong cheese) shredded
  • 1 cube blue cheese (optional)
  • 1/2 cup 35% cream Add more as needed, depending how much fat/liquid remains from cooking the chicken and how thick you like your sauce.
  • 1 package shirataki noodles Other possible low-carb subs are: zoodles and spiralized daikon


  • Open your chicken thighs so they lay flat; cut in three (length-wise) and then each piece in 2 to get roughly 6 pieces of one-inch chicken.
  • OPTIONAL - Bacon version: either use left-over bacon fat or cook 3 slices of bacon. Once your bacon is cooked, set them aside to cool and leave the bacon fat in the pan. Use the same pan to cook your chicken thighs. 
    OTHERWISE - if you're not using bacon, or don't have some on hand, replace the bacon fat with 1 tbsp of grapeseed oil or another oil of your choice. 
  • Warm your fats (bacon/oil + butter) on medium-high heat and add in your chicken thighs. Mix so that the chicken cooks evenly. It should take approximately 7 minutes until the chicken thighs begin brown. As soon as they have a tiny bit of color - they're ready. Lower heat to medium low.
  • Add blue cheese now if you're adding it, let it melt. Add cream, and then add the shredded cheese. Stir in an 8 formation. It should take about 10 minutes for your sauce to reduce to a nice creamy consistency.
  • Once the sauce is to your liking, add the strained shirataki noodles. Mix & serve. Add more cheese (duh)
