Equipment

  • Rimmed baking sheet
  • Parchment paper

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs chicken tenders
  • 1 ½ tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • Bacon not thick cut (you'll need ½ slice for every chicken tender)
  • Brown sugar
  • Sesame seeds
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper then set aside. Pat chicken dry with a paper towel, then season on all sides with onion powder, salt and pepper.
  • Wrap the chicken. Cut one piece of bacon in half lengthwise. Wrap one chicken tender in the half slice of bacon, tucking the ends underneath when possible. Place on prepared baking sheet, then repeat with remaining chicken tenders.
  • Flavor the bacon. Give all the chicken tenders a quick spray with nonstick cooking oil. If desired, sprinkle bacon wrapped chicken tenders with either a teaspoon of brown sugar or ½ teaspoon of sesame seeds.
  • Roast the chicken tenders. Cook for 20 minutes. Carefully move the oven rack to about 3" from the broiler, then set the broiler to high. Cook an additional 5-10 minutes (depending on the power of your broiler) to crisp the bacon. Feel free to flip once during broiling.

Notes

  • If desired, you can cook chicken tenders on a wire rack to help crisp the bacon more evenly on the bottom. I've found this doesn't make a huge difference so generally avoid it.
