These Crack Chicken Tenders are super easy to make. Just season, top with cheese and wrap in bacon. They are ready to bake by the time the oven has preheated. Once the chicken was done baking, I popped it under the broiler to crisp up the bacon a little more. I like my bacon crispy.

Give this chicken a try the next time you need a quick lunch or dinner. They are also great for tailgating! You can assemble them ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to bake. We are making them for the game this weekend. I’ll assemble the chicken in the morning and pop them in the oven right before the game. Perfect!

  1. This recipe was AMAZING! It’s so easy and quick to put together making it perfect for weeknight meals. We all loved it especially the kids. Definitely going to have to make this again very soon. I served it with homemade mac & cheese and a side of veggies. YUM!

  2. I just made this and it is very tasty the only issue I had was the cheese oozed out? Anything I can do to prevent That? Wrapped my bacon as tightly as possible…

  3. Hello Stephanie – we love all your recipes!

    Looking to make these a little more bite size – do you think they will work if I cut the tenders n half and used a half strip of bacon? Thanks!

      1. Mixed cream cheese and ranch powder, topped chicken with this mix, then topped with banana peppers and the cheddar before I wrapped in bacon. Delicious!! Same cook time. It was incredible!!
