I love growing herbs during the summer. It’s a great feeling when you need a certain herb and it’s just growing right outside. I grow parsley, basil, mint, rosemary and sage. I don’t make a lot with sage but I was glad I had it once I found this recipe. These Chicken tenders are so quick and simple to make. The sage leaves gives the chicken a lot of flavor and bacon just makes everything better! Once the bacon is crisp (about 6 minutes per side) the chicken tenders are moist and cooked perfectly.
Place a sage leaf on each chicken tender, then wrap each with a bacon slice. You won’t need a toothpick, once bacon is cooked on one side, it’s easy to flip with a spatula. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add tenders, sage side down, and cook until fat is rendered and bacon is browned, about 6 minutes. Flip and cook until tenders are cooked through, 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate with paper towels to drain. Serves 4 (2 per servings)
