Air Fryer Chicken Tenders
Breaded chicken tenders cooked in an air fryer are The Best! You get that perfectly crunchy texture on the outside while the chicken meat stays nice and juicy. Plus these chicken strips take no time at all. Quicker, easier and healthier than going to the fast food drive-thru for dinner.
Keep a bag of frozen chicken tenders in your freezer for those busy weeknights that you just don’t want to make dinner.
Which Brand Of Frozen Chicken Tenders Are Best For The Air Fryer
I use and prefer Rocky From The Range Chicken Tenders. They come in a yellow and green bag and can be found at Costco as well as other grocery stores.
If you have a preferred chicken tender brand, use those. The cook time may vary depending on the size of the chicken tenders. Each brand tends to have different size chicken strips so adjust the cook time accordingly.

Place frozen chicken tenders into air fryer basket. Air fry at 400ºF for 10 minutes. Check for doneness and cook for 3-5 more minutes if necessary. Cooking time will vary depending on size of tenders.
Can You Stack Chicken Tenders In The Air Fryer
No. I mean, you could but they will not turn out as well. The chicken tenders need to be in an even layer with space between them to allow for the air flow during cooking. Otherwise you will not achieve that crisp outer layer.
