  • 1 pound chicken tenders
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Toothpicks for securing the bacon


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a wire rack.
  2. In a small bowl, combine paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Season the chicken tenders with the spice mixture, making sure they are evenly coated.
  4. Take a slice of bacon and wrap it around a seasoned chicken tender. Secure the bacon with a toothpick, making sure to insert it through both ends of the bacon.
  5. Place the bacon-wrapped chicken tenders on the prepared baking sheet or wire rack.
  6. Repeat this process for all the chicken tenders.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the chicken is cooked through. The internal temperature of the chicken should reach 165°F (74°C).
  8. If you prefer extra crispiness, you can broil the chicken tenders for an additional 2-3 minutes, but keep a close eye on them to prevent burning.
  9. Remove the toothpicks before serving.
  10. Serve your Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Tenders as a main course or as a mouthwatering appetizer.
