  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
  2. Season the chicken tenders with salt, pepper, and any other desired seasonings like garlic powder, onion powder, or paprika. These will enhance the flavor of the chicken.
  3. Take each chicken tender and wrap a strip of bacon around it, starting at one end and wrapping it tightly around the chicken until the entire tender is covered. Secure the bacon in place with a toothpick, piercing it through the bacon and chicken to hold it together.
  4. Place the bacon-wrapped chicken tenders on the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space between each piece so they can cook evenly.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the chicken is cooked through. Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of your chicken tenders, so always check for doneness.
  6. Once cooked, remove the toothpicks from the chicken tenders before serving. You can serve them as appetizers with dipping sauces like barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, or honey mustard. They also make a great main dish paired with side dishes like roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a fresh salad.
