Cheddar Bacon Chicken Tenders are AMAZING! We love anything and everything with bacon and cheese and from now on, when a chicken nugget craving hits, I will make these for dinner! They are full of incredible flavor, very filling, and take chicken tenders to a whole new level! My husband and I dipped them in sour cream ranch and it was awesome! Cheddar Bacon Chicken Tenders are super tasty and perfect for the whole family!
