Martha Stewart Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenders

I am not usually a fan of Martha Stewart recipes because they can be a bit long and tedious, but this recipe was great. Quick and easy. Just what I like. And really, how can you go wrong with anything wrapped in bacon? Yum! You can find the recipe here.

The recipe calls for fresh sage leaves, which I did not have, but that was okay. I had two frozen chicken breast marinated with dried herbs and olive oil that had plenty of flavor for this dish. Cut into even strips, I wrapped each with one slice of bacon then pan fried on the stove just as the recipes says. Perfect! The chicken was cooked through nicely the bacon was crispy. The little girl ate the bacon off only one and some of the chicken but not a problem. More for me.
I made my go-to side. Roasted potatoes.  This time I added 1/2 an onion I had in the fridge and the last if our baby carrots. Seasoned it all with salt and pepper, Trader Joe's Everyday Seasoning, and a clove of garlic and tossed it in olive oil. At 425 degrees for 30-40 minutes - made for some yummy veggies. 
This was really quite good. I will definitely be making it again. In fact, I think I will go warm up the leftovers for my lunch. Oh, and add a salad for a nicely balanced meal. 

Bon Appétit!

    1. Roasted veggies are the best. I love to chop all the veggies, mix them with olive oil and seasoning and keep them in the freezer. I then always have a side to throw in the oven whenever I need it. :)

  11. Bacon + chicken is one of my favorite combos. Love to try some of that Trader Joe's seasoning--we don't have any TJ stores down here in Fla.

  12. Martha Stewart can be hit or miss for me. Often I find that they are not enough bang for the buck or in other words for the time and effort involved, they are not that special. This looks like a good one though.
