Bacon-wrapped chicken tenders

Bacon-wrapped chicken tenders are a mouthwatering appetizer or main dish that combines the savory flavors of bacon with tender chicken. These chicken tenders are wrapped in strips of bacon and baked or grilled to perfection, resulting in a crispy, flavorful outer layer and juicy, tender chicken inside.

To make bacon-wrapped chicken tenders, start by seasoning chicken tenders with salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you like. You can also marinate the chicken tenders in a mixture of olive oil, garlic, and herbs for added flavor.

Next, wrap each chicken tender with a strip of bacon, securing it with a toothpick if needed. Place the wrapped chicken tenders on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake the chicken tenders in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for about 20-25 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy and the chicken is cooked through. Alternatively, you can grill the chicken tenders over medium heat for about 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until the bacon is crispy and the chicken is cooked through.

While the chicken tenders are cooking, you can prepare a dipping sauce to serve alongside them. A simple ranch dressing or honey mustard sauce pairs perfectly with the salty, savory flavors of the bacon-wrapped chicken tenders.

Once the chicken tenders are cooked, remove them from the oven or grill and let them cool slightly before serving. Arrange the chicken tenders on a platter and serve them with the dipping sauce on the side.

Bacon-wrapped chicken tenders are sure to be a hit at any gathering or meal. They are easy to make, incredibly flavorful, and perfect for serving as an appetizer or main dish. Enjoy!
