Air Fryer Chicken Tenders

Ok guys, have you jumped on the Air Fryer train yet?

I recently did and I’m OBSESSED!!! I’ve been telling everyone that my Air Fryer is the perfect partner for my Instant Pot! Haha!

If you haven’t heard of the Instant Pot feel free to check out my opinions on them: https://fromarvadawithlove.com/2017/07/25/instant-pot-101-tips-tricks-and-must-have-accessories/

As for the air fryer, I love how it works! It is perfect for so many things, including these simple Air Fryer Chicken Tenders with Air Fryer French Fries. (You’ll never make french fries another way, I promise.) It is also a healthier alternative to frying with oil.

Not only does the air fryer cook food quickly and efficiently, it can bake, roast, grill or fry pretty much anything you can think of.

There are several different brands and sizes available which makes choosing the perfect one for you, that much easier. I have added the top 4 selling Air Fryers on Amazon right now, including the Ninja Air Fryer, which is the one I used for this recipe.

After using the Air Fryer to make these chicken tenders, I’m not sure I’ll ever make them another way again! They are super simple to make!

Start by gathering your ingredients, slice the chicken breasts into strips of your desired size. They do not have to be perfect, they’ll still taste delicious! Season the chicken with salt and pepper.

Mix the bread crumbs and seasonings together in one bowl, whisk the eggs in another bowl and add the flour to a third bowl.

Coat each piece of chicken in flour, then dip in the egg mixture and finally into the bread crumbs.

Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees for at least 3 minutes, then carefully add the pieces of chicken. Don’t overcrowd the basket, this will prevent the chicken strips from cooking evenly.

Cook the chicken strips at 350 degrees for 12 minutes, turning over after the first 6 minutes.

Work in batches until all of the chicken tenders are cooked.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and sides. We love having these with Air Fryer French Fries! You’ve got to try them! 🙂
