Step 1: The Ingredients
Start with these four ingredients: bacon, chicken tender strips, honey, and sriracha. You can also grab some parsley, if you like a pop of color on your final platter.
Step 2: Wrap the Bacon
Wrap a single slice of bacon around each chicken strip. It’s best to use thin-sliced bacon. Thick-sliced bacon overwhelms the chicken and makes it tricky to wrap.
Once your chicken is wrapped, place it on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet. Doing so will keep your baking sheet from burning as the honey cooks and caramelized.
Step 3: Spread the Honey
Now mix together the honey and Sriracha and spread this mixture over each chicken strip.
Step 4: Then Bake
And now, bake! How incredibly easy is this recipe? Answer: Almost as easy as it is delicious!
