Absolutely delicious. Used organic chicken and Roquefort cheese-28 Feb 2015

My friend.. Double wrapping bacon should never be seen as an accident.. Lol.. But yes.. Lovely recipe quick and easy..-04 Jan 2016

Very tasty, and quick and easy to prepare. Cooked for 10 mins longer than recommended as bacon didn't crisp up but probably because I accidentally wrapped a double layer of bacon around each chicken breast.-04 Jan 2016


To be honest, I really love complex dishes with a huge amount of ingredients. In principle, I love to cook and I can stand for hours in the kitchen, creating something delicious and appetizing.

But, there are always times when you want to devote more time to your husband, child, or yourself. Then no less delicious, but very easy and quick recipes come to the rescue, such as bacon-wrapped chicken tenders.

All you need are chicken tenders, bacon slices, and condiments. And if you still think that poultry in meat is too much, just try these juicy morsels!

Another variation on this theme using cheese. Place a slice of cheese (hard varieties such as cheddar or Swiss will work) on the chicken tender. Then wrap in bacon and bake.


  1. Preheat oven (grill or smoker) to 350 degrees F.
    In a small bowl, combine pepper, salt, paprika, Italian seasoning, garlic, and onion powder.
  2. Place chicken tenders in a separate large bowl and add prepared seasoning so that all pieces are covered on all sides.
  3. Wrap each chicken tender in a thin slice of bacon, tucking the edges down.
  4. In a bowl, combine brown sugar and chili powder.
  5. Sprinkle the chicken tenders with the sugar mixture, press with your fingers to keep it from falling off. Place everything on a parchment-lined baking sheet if cooking in the oven. Or place in a smoker and cook with the lid closed for about 30 minutes, or until the chicken is done.

How long to bake bacon-wrapped chicken tenders?

Preheat oven, grill, or smoker to 350 degrees F. Bake in the smoker with the door closed or in the oven for half an hour.

After that, you can take out one piece, cut it, and check for readiness.

Bake for another 5-7 minutes if necessary, but usually half an hour enough.

Also, after cooking in a smoker, you can put bacon-wrapped chicken tenders on a baking sheet and fry for a few minutes to make the bacon crisp.

Recipe tips

  1. Double the amount of seasoning, salt, and bacon slices if you want more chicken tenders.
  2. Use as thinly sliced bacon as possible. It&rsquos easier to wrap around chicken tenders and won&rsquot stick out.

Do you cover bacon-wrapped chicken tenders?

If you don&rsquot like sweetmeat dishes, then don&rsquot sprinkle chicken tenders with brown sugar. As for me, I really love this cover. The brown sugar melts in the oven and forms a sweet glaze that goes well with bacon.

What to serve with bacon-wrapped chicken tenders?

My top recommendation is to cook the side dish while the bacon-wrapped chicken tenders are baked in the oven or smoker. To serve the side dish along with the chicken. If the side dish is late, you run the risk of being left without a full meal because chicken tenders will be eaten right away. So, the following side dishes go well:

Chicken, bacon and stilton roulades

I am going to have to perfect the way this recipe looks in my photographs but boy is it a tasty one. If you like chicken, bacon and stilton this will be right up your street. It’s a recipe I’ve been making for years and when I lived in Italy I substituted the Stilton with Gorgonzola and used pancetta to wrap around the chicken. This time I used a red wine for the sauce rather than the white and it gave a strong tasty gravy to serve alongside. Find out more about cooking with wine in my Lindeman’s post.

I recently worked with Flora and Jo Pratt making a butter for salmon which was delicious so I chose to make my Stilton butter using Flora Gold, it worked a treat and was soft to use too.

For this recipe you’re going to have to bash the chicken breasts so they are wide and flat, this way you can spread the Stilton butter on one side and roll the breasts up. They can then be covered in bacon and cooked.

Chicken bacon stilton roulades are very straightforward and perfect for entertaining too as they cook on the stove for 35-40 minutes allowing you to get everything else ready for dinner time.

Keeping a can of frozen orange juice concentrate in the freezer means you can make more than just orange juice. Try it in a variety of orange-flavored recipes.

The name, vodka, comes from the Russian phrase zhiznennaia voda, or "water of life". It can be made from everything from potatoes to beets. It's considered to be fairly flavorless which makes it a great liquor for mixed drinks .

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Thighs

This is an easy weeknight dinner made with bacon wrapped chicken thighs and pearl barley. It’s a one skillet dinner with a quick prep. If you like juicy chicken thighs baked in the oven, then you will love this one!

Preparation only takes 10 minutes. In fact, you can prep the whole dish in less than that, especially when you get the hang of it.

This bacon wrapped chicken dinner does take some time cooking though, mainly due to barley used as it needs quite some time to absorb all the liquid.

However, the final result is so worth it! And, you don’t need to worry about the chicken pieces drying out as wrapping them in bacon prevents them from getting dry!

This post contains a ton of useful information to help you achieve the best results and make the whole process easy for beginner cooks.

How to make bacon wrapped chicken thighs

In a large skillet or oven-proof dish combine pearl barley, bell pepper chunks, rosemary, and chicken stock (broth or vegetable stock will also work).

Next, season the chicken with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper and wrap 2 slices of bacon around. Transfer to the skillet and your prep is ready.

All you have to do now is put it in the oven and bake until it is ready. I like to turn the thighs about 40 minutes into cooking time, and I also stir the barley around so that it cooks evenly.

Like you can see, it is an easy recipe for chicken thighs, but it may need some adjusting when it comes to cooking time.

What texture should barley be?

Cooked barley will be chewy and almost like “al dente”, but it should not be hard that you have a hard time chewing.

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenders Recipe

When you hear chicken tenders, you’re probably thinking crisp fried chicken tendies, but I want you to think bacon wrapped chicken tenders. Fried chicken tenders are great from your favorite fast food joint, but when you want a crunchy and delicious appetizer, this bacon wrapped chicken tenders recipe is the way to go.

Chicken tenders are an actual a cut of meat, not just processed fast food item. I know that may be surprising to, but it’s true! Chicken tenders are delicious little strips of meat that come from the underside of a chicken breast. They taste exactly the same as chicken breast, but are perfectly individually sized and tender bites.

We love using chicken tenders for quick and easy meals. Their small size makes them perfect to feed kids (or give a couple to an adult) and they cook quickly. To cook them, you only need to give them a quick bath in BBQ sauce or season them then toss them on the grill for a few minutes. Those are the quick and easy ways – but for this recipe, we’re going to add one more step, a little extra time, and we promise the results are totally worth it.

Bacon wrapped chicken tenders are easy to make, they just take a little bit of time, but like all good things, your patience will be rewarded! After seasoning the tenders with your favorite BBQ rub, carefully wrap them with bacon, then roast them in the oven. Your house will smell amazing as they cook, and when they’re done, you’ll have an incredible appetizer for your next party.

I want to take a second here to talk about the BBQ rub because it’s a key part of the recipe. It’s easy to think that bacon wrapped chicken tenders sound like they’d get enough flavor from the bacon that you don’t need to season the chicken, but that would be incorrect. Using a BBQ rub adds a little sweet and a little heat to complement the bacon, and it’s key! We used our LGCM Apple Rump Rub (or try this Heath Riles Apple Rub from Amazon) to add a bit of fruit flavor too, and it was delicious!

Perhaps the best part of this bacon wrapped chicken tenders recipe is that when they’re ready to serve, you can serve them with a huge assortment of dipping sauces. We chose to serve them with BBQ sauce, honey mustard, and a delicious sriracha aioli. Of course you can feel free to use whatever sauce your heart desires. The bacon wrapped chicken tenders won’t judge you for your choices!

Grilled Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast

There is a definite method to grilling anything with bacon over a hot fire. Bacon has a lot of fat, and fat can cause flare ups on a grill if you’re not careful. The secret to getting this bacon wrapped chicken breast cooked perfectly on the grill is to use two-zone cooking. This means that you have the grill running at high heat on one side (with hot coals banked on one side, or only half of the burners on in a gas grill), and no heat on the other.

You will be cooking your chicken for a majority of the grilling process on the indirect, or no-heat side of your grill. This allows the bacon fat to render slowly without dripping directly into the flames. Then, when your chicken is almost cooked through, you can move it to the direct heat side of the grill to get the bacon nice and crispy. For another optional layer of flavor, you can glaze your chicken with BBQ sauce before moving it to the high heat side of the grill.
