1 lb chicken tenders
8 slices of bacon
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp olive oil
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, smoked paprika, black pepper, and salt.
Drizzle the chicken tenders with olive oil and sprinkle the spice mixture over them, ensuring an even coating.
Wrap each chicken tender with a slice of bacon, securing the ends with toothpicks if necessary.
Place the bacon-wrapped chicken tenders on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy and the chicken is cooked through.

Remove from the oven and let rest for a few minutes before serving.
Variations & Tips
For a spicier kick, add some cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the spice mixture. Alternatively, brush the chicken tenders with a sugar-free barbecue sauce before wrapping them in bacon for a smoky-sweet flavor. You can also experiment with different herbs and spices, such as rosemary or thyme, to create your own unique seasoning blend.
