This week’s challenge was to make a meal that would satisfy both my taste buds and my best guy friend’s hungry stomach. If there’s one thing I know for sure, the way to a guy’s heart (and satisfaction) is through his stomach, and the one way ticket to his stomach is BACON! So bacon wrapped chicken was the plan and boy was it delicious! I even had plenty of healthy leftovers to take to work the next day.
10 Chicken Tenders, boneless and skinless
10 Strips of Bacon
2 Tbsp. of Cilantro, chopped
1 ½ Tbsp. of Dijon Mustard
2 Tbsp. Raw Honey
¼ Teaspoon Black Pepper, to season
¼ Teaspoon Salt, to season
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. These can also be grilled if you want crispier crunchy bacon.
In a large bowl combine the chicken strips, cilantro, mustard, honey and seasoning. Combine well with your hand.
Wrap each piece of chicken with a strip of bacon and lay in an ungreased baking dish.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the juices run clear.

 My grocery store was out of Cilantro at the time! Crazy, I know but cilantro paste can be substituted in case this happens to you too!
