If you’re like me, whenever you see “bacon wrapped”, you dive in! These little morsels are tasty as an appetizer or part of a full-blown meal, easy to make and portable. With a scant 4 ingredients, you can prepare these fast – cooked outside on the grill or, if the weather prevents grilling, in the oven.

8 chicken tenders (flattened to 1/4″ thickness and cut in two)
3 oz basil pesto
8 julienne slices sun-dried tomato in olive oil
8 slices bacon

Dab 1/2 teaspoon (more or less) of pesto on top of each chicken tender. Top with one slice of sun-dried tomato. Fold or roll chicken to enclose pesto. Wrap each roll with one piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
Grill until bacon is brown and crispy on both sides (or, bake in 400 degree oven for 20 minutes or until done).
