Chicken Tender Rollups with Bacon Wrap

Chicken Tender Rollups with Bacon Wrap by Salad Foodie

The basic version of this recipe abounds on the Internet, using boneless chicken breasts and gouda cheese. I tweaked it to use what I had on hand, and that was chicken tenders.

We had no choice but to say “See you tomorrow, come hungry!” Everyone was happily stuffed and knew they were eating a cheese burger. They may be back again tomorrow. Not only was there 2…

I didn't meet the half hour timeline though, because while the cooking is fast, there's measuring and chopping to accomplish. Nevertheless I think you'll enjoy serving this healthy and satisfying stir fry. Note: Beef or pork would…
