remove any tendons or veins showing in the chicken tenders if that is what you're using and cut into bite sized or slightly smaller pieces and place in a baggie or bowl along with the olive oil and spices ( I mix the spices in a glass before hand) make sure the chicken is well coated and allow to marinate for about a 15 minutes whiule you cook the bacon, onion and green pepper
