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!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

    Advertisement
  • Season chicken tenders with BBQ rub. Wrap each tender with 2 thin strips of bacon, tucking in the ends to secure.

  • Mix together honey and water in a small bowl. Set aside.

  • 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.

  • Move tenders to indirect heat and brush with honey mixture. Transfer to a plate and serve.

Easy and yummy. I had some chicken breasts that I needed to cook. I cut them in 3rds used Grill Mates sweet and savory rub. I didn t BBQ because of snow conditions. Baked at 375 for 30 mins on a baking sheet (wrapped w/foil) with a rack. I did baste with the honey/water glaze. Served with BBQ sauce. Read More

This was hit. I used the oven per a comment at 350 for 30 minutes uncovered. The bacon wasn't that crispy so I broiled for a couple of minutes at the end just after I basted with the honey mixture. Still not very crispy but I didn't want to overcook the chicken. I may try cooking it on a rack and covering with a tent foil next time as another comment suggested to see how that works. I used JB's Fat Boy's Sweet Rub. Easy, quick and tasty recipe. Read More

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. Read More
