The key to this technique is keeping the knife still while creating a nice big pocket in the chicken. It is, truly, a method for all seasons." — Chef John
Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Tenders
"The perfect marriage of smoky and sweet flavors is what you'll get when you use the outdoor grill to cook up these chicken tenders! I like to use center-cut bacon since it is leaner and less likely to cause flareups," says recipe creator France C. "I find cutting the bacon lengthwise, and then using the thin strips to wrap the bacon, is much easier than trying to wrap using a wide strip. Use your favorite BBQ rub on the chicken!"
Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Chicken Bombs with Bacon and Jalapenos
"Holy smokes, these are so good! The bacon keeps the chicken nice and moist. We followed one of the optional instructions and baked them in the oven first at 400 degrees to crisp up the bacon and then at the 375. They did take a lot longer to get to cook, but it was worth it." — blkdog
