  • 6 slices of thick-cut bacon
  • 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 4 tbsp of unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup of all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp of garlic powder
  • ¼ to 1 tsp of cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp of smoked paprika
  • 1½ tsp of kosher salt
  • 1 tsp of coarse black pepper
  • 1 cup of Belgian-style wheat beer
  • 1 cup of reduced-sodium chicken stock
  • 2 cups of half-and-half
  • 8 ounces of mild cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce

For Garnish

  • Chives, chopped
  • Croutons
  • Crisp bacon, diced, you can reserve some from the cooked bacon


Step 1

Place an 8-quart pot on a stove over medium-high heat, then cut the bacon directly into the pot, and cook them until nice and crispy while stirring occasionally. While waiting for the bacon to cook, cut the chicken into small bite-sized pieces, then remove the cooked bacon using a slotted spoon, and transfer them to a plate setting them aside. In the same pot, add the chicken pieces, then sprinkle half a teaspoon of salt, give them a good toss, and let them cook through.


Step 2

Remove the cooked chicken with a slotted spoon, then place them on the same plate with the bacon, and add the butter cut into 1 tablespoon in the same pot. Stir the butter until completely melted, then add the flour, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, kosher salt, and black pepper, and whisk them all together until well combined and incorporated. Let them cook for about 1 minute while whisking constantly until the flour taste is gone, then add the beer, and continue to whisk until well combined.

Step 3

Allow it to cook for 2 more minutes, then add the chicken stock and half-and-half, and give them a good stir to combine before reducing the heat to medium. Now, slowly add the cheese a little bit a time while whisking continuously until incorporated and smooth, then add the Worcestershire sauce, and put the cooked chicken and bacon back into the pot. Give them a good mix until well combined, then allow it to simmer until ready to serve while stirring occasionally, and then garnish with croutons, chives, and bacon. Serve and enjoy!
