Turkey Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Bacon. Enough said.

Yes, this is turkey bacon, but it crisped up and caramelized in the oven and was absolutely delicious.

I was looking for a good recipe for bacon wrapped chicken, and a lot of them included brown sugar and chili powder. I didn't have any brown sugar, so I substituted honey. I wound up using way less sweetener than other recipes called for, and this still came out delicious!

Turkey Bacon Wrapped Chicken 


3/4 lbs chicken breast, cut into 4 tenders (my tenders were 3 ounces each)
4 slices turkey bacon
1 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon chili powder
pinch of salt


1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.

2. Mix the honey, water, chili powder, and salt in a small bowl (until honey has dissolved).

3. Wrap each chicken tender with a piece of bacon. Dip them in the honey mixture (get it all in there!) then place on the baking pan.

4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until bacon is crispy and the chicken is cooked through.
