Bacon Wrapped BBQ Chicken Tenderloins

When I need a super easy weeknight dinner, I usually whip up this simple bacon-wrapped chicken.  It is one of the easiest to make, the kids love it, and the leftovers are just as delicious as they are the first night. 

It only takes 5 pantry staple ingredients to make this dinner too. I don’t know about you, but I love meals I can make with only a handful of ingredients.  The fewer ingredients the better when it comes to easy dinners. 

Ingredients You Will Need

It doesn’t take much to make this kid-approved dinner. You only need:

How to Make BBQ Bacon Wrapped Chicken

When making this BBQ bacon-wrapped chicken, I recommend using a broiler pan or some other wire rack on top of your regular baking sheet. This will allow the grease from the bacon to drip off without saturating the chicken while it cooks. 

By cooking your chicken on a wire sheet, you will have crispier bacon and tender chicken!

I also recommend using foil on the bottom of your pan. As you see here, I did not and it was a mess to clean up after. 

The sheet pan I used was an older one that is quite stained and well used though, so it wasn’t as big of a deal. Though I did leave it to soak for a full 24 hours to make it easier to clean off. 

A nice foil on the pan will help make this much easier to clean afterward! Seriously, do as I as, not as I do. 

All you really need to do to re-create this recipe is coat your chicken in BBQ sauce. Sprinkle on seasoning. Wrap in bacon, and cover with cheese! 

See, I told you it was easy! Then you just back at 425° for about 20-30 minutes and you are good to go!

The Perfect Meal Prep Chicken

As well as being quick and easy, BBQ bacon-wrapped chicken is perfect for meal prepping.

It heats up really well, making it perfect for lunches for the week or easy dinners for a  few nights.
