Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Tenders


I have to share the chicken recipe I tried for dinner last night. It’s so easy to throw together, and I already had all of the ingredients. Prep time was maybe ten minutes, bake time was 30. I will definitely be making this often.


  • Chicken breasts, cut into strips (this is what the original recipe calls for, I just used tenderloins)
  • Brown sugar
  • Chili powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Bacon


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Season your chicken with the salt, pepper, chili powder, and garlic powder. (Original recipe didn’t have specific amounts- I definitely used more chili powder than anything else.)
  3. Wrap one piece of bacon around each piece of chicken.
  4. Roll the bacon-wrapped chicken in brown sugar.
  5. Place in baking dish with 2-3 tablespoons oil (I totally skipped this step, because I hate oily chicken. Just spray your baking dish with cooking spray if you also want to skip the oil).
  6. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, just until chicken is cooked through (Mine took 30 minutes. The bacon wasn’t as crispy as I would have liked, so next time I might try turning the broiler on high for the last 10 minutes).


How easy is that?! The flavor on these is unbelievable. A little bit sweet, and a little bit smoky. Not to mention, BACON. I served mine with baked potatoes. I bet these would also turn out great on the grill!
