Chicks in a Blanket

This is and incredibly easy dish to cook, it takes only about a half hour, and it's really good.


1 lbs chicken tenders
cup
brown sugar
1 tbl
chili powder or any other seasoning, Old Bay, Tony Chachere's, etc.
10 to 12
slices of bacon (as many slices of bacon as there are chicken tenders}

If you have time, brine the chicken tenders for 45 minutes in a mixture of cup sugar, cup salt, and 4 cups of water.  The brine will make the chicken that much more juicy.  If you don't, the bacon does a great job by itself of keeping the chicken from drying out.  Preheat the oven to 375.  Mix the brown sugar and chili powder or other seasoning together well.  Take the chicken tenders out of the brine.  Pat the chicken tenders dry and roll them in the brown sugar seasoning.  Wrap a slice of bacon diagonally around each chicken tender and fasten it on each end with toothpicks.  Crinkle some aluminum foil so that the chicken tenders can bake on it while the bacon drippings drain away, and line a baking pan with it.  Put the chicken tenders on the foil lined baking sheet and sprinkle more of the brown sugar seasoning over each chicken tender.  Bake for 25 minutes.  Serve.
