Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenders

Saturday, June 25, 2011 Review by judywrites

Hi everyone,

Here you go – to heck with the deep fried chicken tenders… give this recipe a try. Bet it will be a success at your next party. It could also be a quick and easy dinner served with a simple salad.

Serves 4

  • 8 fresh sage leaves
  • 8 chicken tenders (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Place a sage leaf on each chicken tender, then wrap each with a bacon slice. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add tenders, sage side down, and cook until fat is rendered and bacon is browned, about 6 minutes. Flip and cook until tenders are cooked through, 6 minutes. With tongs, transfer to a wire rack set on a rimmed baking sheet to drain.

    I whipped up a batch of these the other night. I didn’t have any sage but I hit them generously with a peppercorn blend. They were super easy to cook, and very tasty. I would be wary of the medium-high heat recommendation, though. I have a nice new stove and I cooked mine for the noted 6 minutes per side but only on 5, rather than 7 or 8 and they came out well. Any longer and I’d be afraid the tenders would come out dry. Mine were pretty thick and they came out just right. Your mileage may vary depending on your cooktop.
