Bacon Wrapped Cordon Bleu!
1 Lb. Raw Chicken Tenders (Free range, hormone/antibiotic free)
1 package Bacon: We like the brand 'Never Any' sold at Aldi! (Free of toxic preservatives, hormone/antibiotic free)
1 package Deli Ham slices: We like the brand 'Never Any' sold at Aldi! (Free of toxic preservatives, hormone/antibiotic free)
Shredded cheese (amount optional) We like to use vegan cheese, or grass-fed cheese.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Roll out some parchment paper (enough to hold all the chicken tenders doubled) and place your raw pieces of chicken on one half.
Fold the other half of the parchment paper over top the chicken tenders, and using a meat hammer- flatten each piece.
Sprinkle the meat with sea salt and pepper to taste.
On each tender, place a piece of deli meat and a small handful of shredded cheese.
Roll up each tender, and wrap in bacon. Use a toothpick to secure in place.
Once assembled, align on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.
Cook for 30-35 minutes.
Optional: Set oven to 'broil' for the last 5 minutes in the oven to crisp up the bacon.
*We had about a slice and a half of bacon leftover after wrapping all the chicken. Instead of keeping it for later, we cut it in pieces, sautéed with a chopped onion and green beans while the chicken was in the oven!
