Ingredients

Chicken Tendie Pillows

  • 1 lb Chicken Tenderloin 6-8
  • 2 tbs Biddy
  • 12 oz Bacon

Avocado/Blue Cheese Sauce

  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 tbs Heavy Cream
  • 2 tbs Sour Cream or Irish Salsa
  • 4 oz Avocado
  • 1/4 cup Blue Cheese

Instructions

Chicken Tenderloins

  • Cut the white tendon out about an inch up.
  • I don't mess around with trying to hold it to remove tendon.
  • Just cut straight down on both sides of tendon then parallel to remove. You'll have a rectangle in the fat part of tendie
  • Just my preference but if you have slick side up usually there is a semi transparent film (don't know what it's called). I pull that off, it's slight but I can tell when it's there when eating. It's not as gross as the tendon.
  • I season with our stuff Biddy but whatever tickles you fancy. It's got bacon.

Bacon

  • Let go to room temp.
  • If it's thick I will roll it on cutting board with a jar. This will get the bacon crispier but not necessary.

The Pillow Construction

  • Start bacon wrap at fat side of tendie and roll like candy cane slightly overlapping.
  • I lay bacon on board and roll tendies like a cubano cigar.
  • When wrapped sometimes I will pin end of bacon w/ toothpick in at an angle.
  • You can also lay the pillow down so that the end is on bottom to avoid toothpicks.
  • If you want you can roll in your favorite pepper. Either or is great.
  • I like to cook long on charcoal to side of heat. Your setup will vary.
  • A solid temp in oven is 350 for 30 minutes. Check bacon done-ness and flip if if you want all around crispy. In my oven it will be another 15 to 20 minutes.

Avocado/Blue Cheese Sauce

  • If you are using Irish Salsa skip the sour cream
  • In bowl smash avocado as much as you can with pinch of salt.
  • Add heavy and sour cream.
  • Whip until you get desired consistency.
  • Stir in Blue Cheese.
  • I make sauce while pillows are cooking.

Notes

We normally cook long on charcoal to side of heat. Your setup will vary.
Blue Cheese crumbled to your perfect size. We do about 1/4" or smaller.

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.

If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much other than what my browser flags. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
