Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenders

It’s May, and May should mean some fairly awesome barbecuing weather. But after about the fifth consecutive day of rain, I finally gave in to the fact that my chicken was not going to be barbecued. I get it, I get it, it’s Spring and it rains in the springtime, but come on!!! It feels like the dementors have decended on Ontario and brought with them doom and gloom and terrential rain for days and honestly, I felt like I was never going to be happy again. Where’s a patronus when you need one?

By the way, have you ever wondered what your own patronus would be? I took the Discover Your Patronus Quiz on the Pottermore.com site and it said mine was a black and white cat. It struck me as odd consider I don’t even like cats, but I am kind of moody and untrusting so maybe lol

I’ve gotten side tracked by Harry Potter chat, sorry about that, back to the chicken. Most days I would risk the cold wet rain for some barbecue but after being wet and cold multiple times a day for days on end, I wasn’t having it and came up with new plan. The new plan was pure genius and if there was anything good that came out of all this rain, it was this chicken!

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenders - Mom vs the BoysThese bacon wrapped chicken tenders are little bit sweet and a little bit spicy and a whole lot tasty! They got rave reviews from the whole family BEFORE they even took one bite! The smell of bacon in the oven had the boys enticed and even they told me how amazing it looked as the pan came out of the oven. When my husband walked through the door from work, he was beyond impressed and I felt like SuperMom! With a crew of picky eaters, it’s rare for us to find a recipe everyone in the family will enjoy, and this one was a smash hit! Who needs the barbecue anyway? lol
