Grilled Chicken Tenders with Basil and Bacon Recipe

This is only three-ingredients recipe. Very easy to prepare. You can substitute sun-dried tomatoes or slivers of Parmesan cheese for the basil or use prosciutto or pancetta in place of the bacon if desired.

Makes 4-6 servings

Ingredients: 1Β½ pounds (740 g) chicken tenders, 1 bunch fresh basil, rinsed, shaken dry, and stemmed, 12-16 thin slices bacon

Instructions: Place 1-2 basil leaves on each chicken tender, then wrap each tender and basil in a slice of bacon. Secure the bacon with a toothpick. Preheat the gas grill to high. Place the drip pan under the front of the grill. Lightly grease the hot surface with vegetable oil.

Place the chicken tenders on the hot oiled grill and grill, covered, for 3-5 minutes, turning once.

Turn off gas grill and open the lid. Using tongs, remove grilled chicken from the grill and transfer to a serving plate. Remove and discard the toothpicks. Serve grilled chicken tenders hot.
