Bacon Wrapped Pesto Chicken

Chicken can be a hard sell in my house, especially with the kids. Do you have this problem as well? I can't really blame them, if you're not careful, chicken breasts are can be really bland and tasteless.

I've spiced up these chicken tenders with a little bacon and pesto, because who doesn't love bacon?! If you're not sure about the pesto, go ahead and bake some without the sauce. Experiment with others if you'd like as well, buffalo is great, ranch might even be tasty!

Add this main dish to your summer lineup, it will go perfect with all of the fresh veggies coming out of the garden. Break out the grill if it's too hot to cook inside, and this would be fantastic topped over a big salad the next day for lunch! So many simple ways to enjoy this dish, the kids will be begging for more.

Bacon Wrapped Pesto Chicken

1.5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken tenders or breasts cut into smaller strips
1 pound bacon

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Spread pesto over top of each strip, then wrap one slice of bacon around each piece of chicken.

Place chicken onto a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Serve chicken with desired sides.
