These Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Tenders are as moist and delicious as they look!
1 lb chicken tenders (aprox 10 chicken tenders)
10 strips bacon
½ tsp Italian seasoning
½ tsp black pepper
½ to 1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 TBSP chili powder
Preheat smoker (or grill or oven) to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, mix together Italian seasoning, pepper, salt, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder.
Sprinkle mixture evenly over all sides of the chicken tenders, covering them completely in spices.
Wrap a slice of bacon around each tender. Tuck in the ends.
Mix brown sugar and chili powder together, and sprinkle generously over the bacon-wrapped chicken on all sides.
Press the brown sugar mixture onto the chicken so it doesn’t come off.
Place bacon-wrapped chicken on smoker and cook with lid closed for about 30 minutes, or until chicken and bacon are done.
If desired, place chicken on a cookie sheet and broil for a few minutes to crisp up the bacon.
