The Best Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenders

These Bäcon-Wräpped Chicken Tenders äre äs moist änd delicious äs they look! Everyone loved them, änd there were zero leftovers.

The spices äre perfect, ädding to the flävor of the chicken änd bäcon without overpowering it. We mäde ours on our beloved Träeger wood-fired grill, but they could älso be grilled over indirect heät on ä träditionäl grill or popped in the oven ät 350 degrees for äbout 25-30 minutes. If you like your bäcon exträ crispy, broil your finished product for ä few minutes to your desired crispness (we didn’t do thät this time).

We completed this delicious dinner with rice änd säuteed fresh green beäns. YUM!
