How to Cook Chicken Tenders in an Air Fryer
Air fried chicken tenders are quick and easy, and great for a quick dinner or easy snack or appetizer.
For seasoning, I often use store-bought chicken spices [affiliate link], but you can easily make your own. Try using salt, ground pepper, paprika, and ground cumin for a simple homemade mix.
To prepare, pat the chicken tenders dry, drizzle with a little cooking oil, then add the seasoning and toss the chicken to ensure they are fully coated with the seasoning and oil.
I usually cook unbreaded chicken tenders, but of you prefer crumbed tenders, you can toss half a cup of panko breadcrumbs into the bowl when you mix with the seasoning.
