It is free of dairy, egg, peanut, and tree nut. Be sure the food items you use are free of these allergens to ensure your recipe is safe for your loved one by reading all labels and calling the manufacture if needed for how it is produced.

Calorie count: 310 (for two chicken tenders) (based on the food brands I used) Read your labels for accurate calorie counts. Follow package serving size for accurate counting of calories. I measure everything per plate/bowl based on serving sizes listed on all packages/containers to determine calories.

What you will need:
6-8 Boneless Skin Chicken Breast Tenders
6-8 Slices of Thin Sliced Bacon
1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar
Red Pepper Flakes
Salt
Pepper

How to:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Wrap each chicken tender with 1 slice of bacon
Lay in something similar to what I used a corning ware casserole dish.
afb3af54-68b9-45ee-970d-86d19b8373cb
Sprinkle Red Pepper Flakes, Salt, and Pepper over all bacon wrapped chicken tenders.
227ec09d-36b6-40c0-ac7e-374d5efce355
Add Brown Sugar to each bacon wrapped chicken tender.
064b79c7-cfde-4aa1-85c6-ddb5b68db0ab
Place on top shelf of oven.
Set timer for 20 minutes.
Flip bacon wrapped chicken tenders over to other side.
Set timer for another 20 minutes
When timer goes off you will have a quit a bit of grease in bottom of casserole dish. Scoop or spoon out almost all grease.
Return them to the oven.
Increase temperature to 450 degrees
Set timer for 10 minutes
Flip bacon wrapped tenders over.
Set timer for another 10 minutes.
At this point if your bacon is as crispy as you would like stop cooking.
With the increase temp the bottom of the casserole dish will blacken from the brown sugar. This is ok and will not affect the chicken.
If bacon is not as crispy as you would like repeat the flipping of your bacon wrapped chicken tenders in 5 minute intervals until desired crispiness is reached.
Serve and Enjoy!
These are simply amazing! The flavor is out of this world!
Enjoy ❤
