Sweet Bacon Chicken

I was wanting to find a recipe for chicken tenders, so I did what everyone else in America does and perused Pinterest. I found an awesome recipe for Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken so I decided to take a look. Anyone that knows me, knows that the word ‘spicy’ is a huge turn off for me, so I decided to change the recipe up a bit and call it Sweet Bacon Chicken. I promise, this recipe is amazing! 

Sweet and salty are two mixes that I love and this recipe gives you that and more. 
I seasoned my chicken tenders using garlic salt, pepper, a tad bit of regular salt, and this awesome Applewood Rub that I found in my spice cabinet. After I seasoned my chicken I wrapped each piece in bacon and then I coated each bacon wrapped chicken in brown sugar and placed them on the pan.
Bake at 400 degrees for around 30-40 minutes. If I were to do this again I would put a wire rack over the pan and place the wrapped chickens on the wire rack so the chicken did not cook in the bacon grease. 
I hope you enjoy this deliciousness as much as my family did!
