These are eaten and I get a crumb; they never survive a minute out of the oven.


Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Tenders

With a tender, flavorful bite, bacon-wrapped chicken tenders offer a delightful blend of savory and smoky flavors. Originally a popular appetizer in North American cuisine, these tenders are perfect for those on a low-carb diet without compromising on taste. Ideal for game days, family gatherings, or a cozy supper at home, this dish will soon become a favorite in your kitchen.

These bacon-wrapped chicken tenders pair wonderfully with roasted vegetables like Brussels sprouts or asparagus, or a crisp garden salad topped with a light vinaigrette. Consider serving them with a creamy avocado dip or mashed cauliflower for a complete meal. Don't forget to garnish with a slice of lemon and enjoy with a refreshing iced tea or sparkling water.


  • 1 pound chicken tenders
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together black pepper, salt, smoked paprika, and garlic powder.
  3. Drizzle olive oil over the chicken tenders, then sprinkle the spice mixture evenly on all sides.
  4. Wrap each chicken tender with a slice of bacon, securing the ends with toothpicks if necessary.
  5. Arrange the bacon-wrapped chicken tenders on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the bacon is crispy.
  7. Allow the chicken tenders to rest for a few minutes before serving.

Variations and Tips:

  • For a spicier kick, add cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the spice blend.
  • For a smoky-sweet flavor, coat the chicken tenders with sugar-free barbecue sauce before wrapping them with bacon.
  • Experiment with different herbs and spices like thyme or rosemary to create your own seasoning mix.
