Bacon Brown Sugar Chicken Tenders

Triple this Brown Sugar Chicken Tenders recipe, I promise they’re that good. You won’t even miss the breading in most chicken strips because instead you have CRISPY BACON.

Plus its sweet and sticky and bacon-y.

Five ingredients in this Bacon Brown Sugar Chicken Tenders!

Serving ideas/Flavor ideas for your Bacon Brown Sugar Chicken Tenders:

  • Want it a bit spicier? Add in 1/4 teaspoon of crushed red pepper or a squirt of Sriracha.
  • If you want an even deeper caramel flavor, try dark brown sugar.
  • Serve with ranch dressing or honey mustard for dipping sauces.
  • Have lots of paper towels to save smears from your couches as people are watching the game.
  • If you’d prefer to make this with boneless thigh meat cut the thighs in three strips.

You can also cut your chicken pieces into bite sized chunks and cook them off as bites (I am making these for the next Dodgers game and I will snap some pictures!).
