PREP TIME10 minutes
COOK TIME30 minutes
TOTAL TIME45 minutes
  • 12 skinless, boneless chicken tenders or chicken breasts sliced into 12 strips
  • 12 center cut bacon or turkey bacon slices- I use Oscar Mayer center cut bacon
  • 2 tsp light brown sugar, unpacked
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • 3 Tbsp sugar free BBQ sauce-I love Baby Rays sugar free BBQ sauce or G Huges
  • Green onions, thinly sliced for garnish


    1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
    2. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or foil that has been lightly sprayed with non stick cooking spray and set aside. (I like to cook the tenders on a wire rack on top of the baking sheet and spray the wire rack with non stick cooking spray-but if you don’t have one-don’t stress-you can just lay the tenders on the lightly coated foil.)
    3. In a small bowl mix light brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, seasoned salt. Mix until well combined.
    4. Place the chicken breast tenders into a shallow plate or bowl. Lightly coat chicken tenders with seasoning mixture.
    5. Wrap one a piece of bacon around each chicken tender and secure it with a toothpick, if needed.
    6. Place wrapped chicken tenders, seam down onto prepared baking sheet in a single layer.
    7. Cook for about 22-25 minutes remove from oven.
    8. Using a basting brush, brush each chicken tender with sugar free BBQ sauce.
    9. Place bacon wrapped chicken tenders back in the oven for another 5 minutes and an additional 2 minutes for broiling or until the bacon is a nice golden brown.
