Air Fryer Chicken Tenders

Air Fryer Chicken Tenders are super easy to make in the Air Fryer and not as messy as frying chicken on the stove. The chicken tenders turn out crispy on the outside and tender and juicy inside.

  • 2-3 pounds chicken tenderloins fresh
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil
  1. Preheat Air Fryer to 360 degrees F.
  2. In small flat bowl, whisk egg then add milk. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. In separate flat bowl, add flour and salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Season trimmed chicken with salt and pepper then dredge each tenderloin in flour then place in egg and milk mixture. Remove from egg mixture, shaking gently to remove extra liquid. Place back in flour and coat well.
  5. Place coated tenderloins in Air Fryer basket in single layer. Cook 10 minutes. Use tongs to flip chicken tenders. Cook another 8-10 minutes. If needed, cook an additional 4-6 minutes until crispy and fully cooked.
Key to Success #1 – Season Every Step
One of the keys to delicious fried chicken is making sure you season the chicken every step of the way. I mean season the chicken then season the flour then season the egg and milk mixture.

For the seasoning, you can use something as simple as salt and pepper. Or you can spice things up with some Slap Ya Mama seasoning or any other seasoning of your choice.

My kids are masters at finding the hidden spice in any dish so I went with salt and pepper in my chicken tenders.
Key to Success #2 – Double-Bread the Chicken
The key to keeping the breading on the chicken is by using a double-breading technique. This means you’ll dip your chicken into flour then into the milk/egg mixture then back into the flour.

Double-breading will help make your chicken tenders crispy and will help the breading stay in place while cooking. Isn’t that just miserable when all your breading falls off into the bottom of the frying pan? You won’t have this problem with Air Fryer Chicken Tenders.

Key to Success #3 – Use Just a Touch of Oil
After you put your Chicken Tenders in a single layer in the basket of your Air Fryer, you’ll want to spray them lightly with olive oil.

I have these nifty aerosol-free oil spray bottles that I use often with my Air Fryer. With every pull of the trigger, a tiny 1.35 milileters of oil is dispensed so it really does not add much oil to the recipe.

Spray enough oil that it’ll completely wet the breading on the chicken tenders. For me, this is maybe 4-5 trigger pulls.

Be sure you turn your Air Fryer Chicken Tenders halfway through cooking then spray the other side lightly with oil. This will allow both sides of your chicken tenders to crisp up.

I have a Cozyna XL Air Fryer and I can fit about 5 chicken tenders in my basket at one time. With 5 chicken tenders, it takes 18-20 minutes for my chicken to fully cook and crisp up. Every Air Fryer is different so be sure to watch your chicken carefully.

These Air Fryer Chicken Tenders would be great paired with some Air Fryer French Fries. Or even enjoy with some Coleslaw on the side.
