Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Tenders

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"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 flare-ups. 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!"

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Season chicken tenders with BBQ rub. Wrap each tender with 2 thin strips of bacon, tucking in the ends to secure.
  3. Mix together honey and water in a small bowl. Set aside.
  4. Place chicken tenders on the preheated grill and reduce heat to medium-low. Close lid and grill tenders, turning every 2 to 3 minutes, until bacon is browned and chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit (73 degrees C), 12 to 14 minutes. For crispier bacon, increase heat during the last 2 minutes of cooking.
  5. Move tenders to indirect heat and brush with honey mixture. Transfer to a plate and serve.

Tasted great

Turned out awesome! My fiancé said I have to make this again very soon!

It was good. I baked it instead of grilling it. I was hard to get the bacon crisp enough. I broiled it once the chicken was cooked, it crisped up nicely.
