I first ate these at my daughter's home, probably more than a year ago. She's a busy working mom who's also going to law school and low-carbs, so easy-peasy high-protein dinners and snacks are high on her priority list. She had a full container of these tasty morsels chilling in the fridge and said, "Help yourself."
I had a hard time staying out of them!
Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Tenders (2 servings)
- Six chicken tenderloins (or 2 large chicken breasts, cut lengthwise in thirds)
- Six slices uncooked sugar-free bacon
- 1 Tblsp. chili powder (or to taste)
- 1 Tblsp. garlic powder (or to taste)
- Freshly ground black pepper
You can also grill these, but mine get too dried out on the grill. Adjust the seasoning to your taste, or try a marinade instead of dry seasonings. You can get very creative with this dish and you almost can't ruin it. Because … bacon!
For yesterday's salad, I simply sliced four or five leftover pieces (because I nearly always double or triple this recipe) crosswise and warmed them in a skillet, then threw them on top of a bowl of mixed greens + black olives + pico de gallo. Serious yum.
