I am usually very good at meal planning and creating my grocery list. This summer I have fallen off the meal planning wagon as our schedule hasn’t been very busy. This relaxed state led me to create these Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenderloins.
Recently I found my self digging through my freezer and my pantry to decide what to make for dinner. I found some chicken tenderloins left over from the last time I made Parmesan Crusted Chicken, I only make a half batch since I’m cooking for 2 now. There was also some bacon that needed to be cooked. These 2 ingredients were enough for me to whip up a new, easy recipe.
It's back to school time. This Oven Baked Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenderloins recipe is an easy and delicious weeknight meal.
- 1 lb chicken tenderloins
- 10 strips bacon
- 3 1/2 tsp Lawry's Seasoned Salt

Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a small bowl mix together the seasoned salt and pepper.
In another small bowl mix together the chili powder and brown sugar. Set aside.

Ron and I both enjoyed these oven backed bacon wrapped chicken tenderloins. I served it with canned new potatoes sprinkled with seasoned salt. It has been added to my regular meal planning rotation.
