Keto BBQ Chicken Wrapped In Parma Ham

Still got them BBQ shoes on

Well it seems that it’s now Barbecue week on Headbanger’s Kitchen given that we made a Keto BBQ sauce and I used that for my bacon bomb and I had plenty left over. So today we’re making BBQ Chicken wrapped in some delicious Parma ham that I had. I’m also whipping up a blue cheese dip to go with it. If you recall, about a year ago I made some garlic parm chicken wings. In that video I had served the wings with a blue cheese dip. There was a promise made to share that recipe in the future, so better late than never. Hope you folks like it.

Parma Ham can also be Bacon

The only reason I actually used Parma Ham in this recipe was because I had some at home. Someone had given me some (like an aunt who went abroad), since Parma ham is super expensive in India I almost never buy it. I would have used bacon in place of it and I would have wrapped the chicken in the bacon right from the start. The process largely remains the same. You can also try this recipe with fish or prawns and I think it would be quite good. The cooking time would vary though since they cook much faster than chicken on the bone. Cheers!
