Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken tenders
  • 1/2 cup almond flour can also sub coconut flour
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • salt + pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Spray Air Fryer Basket With Cooking Spray well. Chicken tenders may stick and breading will pull off if the air fryer basket isn't sprayed well.

  2. Season Tenders With Salt & Pepper. Dip Chicken Tenders Into Flour, Then Egg, Then Flour Again.

  3. Place Chicken Into Air Fryer Basket. Cook At 350 Degrees For Approximately 5 Minutes. Flip chicken tenders and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Cook until temperature reaches 165F.

Recipe Notes

You can also use coconut flour as opposed to almond flour.  My personal preference is almond flour as it gives it a more vibrant, nutty flavor.

Also feel free to swap out garlic powder for your favorite seasoning blend.  Adjust salt as necessary depending on salt in your seasoning blend.
