Bacon-wrapped chicken tenders

  1. Sprinkle chicken tenders with salt and all of the spices, with the exception of chili powder, to coat them on all sides.
  2. Fold the edges down and wrap the chicken in bacon in thin slices.
  3. Sprinkle chicken rolls with chili powder-brown sugar mixture. To prevent the mixture from falling off, press it down with your fingers.
  4. Cook for 30 minutes in an oven preheated to 350 F on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Alternately, cook for about 30 minutes with the lid on in a smoker.


  • If you want additional chicken tenders, increase the seasoning, salt, and bacon pieces by two times.
  • Use bacon that has been thinly sliced. It won’t stick out and is simpler to wrap around chicken tenders.
