  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place a cooling rack on top of a rimmed baking sheet.

  • Mix paprika, salt, and onion powder together in a small bowl. Sprinkle seasoning over both sides of each chicken tender. Wrap each tender with two strips of bacon, tucking the ends in to secure.

  • Mix brown sugar and chili powder together in a small bowl. Gently roll each bacon-wrapped tender in the brown sugar mixture, pressing down to ensure good coverage.

  • Arrange tenders on top of the prepared cooling rack, making sure to not overcrowd.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bacon is crisp and chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

For extra crispy bacon, broil on low for 5 additional minutes.
