1 lbs. chicken tenders (about 10 chicken tenders)
10 strips bacon, sliced in half length-wise
½ -1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
⅔ cup light brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons chili powder

Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix together salt, paprika, black pepper, onion powder,italian seasoning, and garlic powder. Sprinkle mixture evenly over chicken tenders, (top and bottom) completely coating them generously in the spices. Wrap two sliced bacon strips around the chicken tender. Tuck in and loose ends. Mix together brown sugar and chili powder. Sprinkle this mixture generously over bacon wrapped chicken, top and bottom. Press the sugar mixture into the chicken to pack it on. Place the chicken on a greased grill pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until chicken is done and bacon is crisp. You can broil for the last few minutes if desired to crisp up the bacon more. Serve hot. Garnish with parsley if desired.
