Who says that chicken tenders have to be battered and fried? Today we have a lightened up recipe for chicken tenders that are just as tasty! And the secret might just be an air fryer…

An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that cooks by circulating hot air around the food. A mechanical fan circulates the hot air around the food at high speed, cooking the food and producing a crispy layer. It’s a great way to cook dinner without needing to turn on the oven and heating up the house.

If you don’t have an air fryer then simply bake in the oven at 425 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, turning once halfway through.
