The great thing about the air fryer is that the tenders get super crispy with way less oil. This air fryer recipe for chicken tenders only requires a little olive oil spray on each one.

Place on a cutting board or baking tray until you’re done breading all of them. Place chicken tenders in a single layer of the basked and air fry for 5 to 6 minutes on each side, turning halfway.

If you don't have a deep fryer, you may also heat oil in a large skillet and use a pot thermometer ($10; Amazon) to measure the temperature.

Fry the chicken in small batches for about 6 to 8 minutes, or until golden brown. For a healthier, and more hands-off approach to making chicken strips, baking is the way to go.

Easy Baked Chicken Tenders Recipe Creator Tarry says, “A wholesome twist on the classic favorite chicken tenders... I personally would prefer these baked over fried any day!” Dip two chicken strips into the egg and place into the bread crumb mixture.

Preheat an air fryer to 350 degrees F. Whisk one egg in a small bowl. Mix bread crumbs and oil together in another bowl until the mixture becomes loose and crumbly.

Dip chicken into the crumb mixture, making sure it is evenly and fully covered. Lay chicken tenderloins into the basket of the air fryer.

Skinless, boneless chicken breasts are often a challenge to cook properly in a deep fryer, skillet, or a conventional oven. A good way to make really juicy chicken breasts is to cook them in an air fryer.

There are hundreds of different air fryer models from a few dozen companies like Power, Nu wave, Email, Cuisinart, Phillips, Freeware and several others. In my research, I have discovered that not all air fryers are created equal.

Temperatures and cook times do vary, as do the interior setups. Some fryers have mesh style baskets, while others have grill plates, similar to a skillet but with slits for air to circulate.

So, you will need to adjust the cooking times in these recipes to meet the personality of your fryer. A digital meat thermometer is a good investment for cooking proteins.

The recipes below are super healthy because you are not deep-frying in lots of fat. It takes very little oil to coat the chicken so that a nice golden brown outer layer forms.

I really love how I can save on calories and fat when cooking chicken in an air fryer. Kids like it with a dipping sauce, such as honey mustard or ranch dressing.

In a small bowl, mix together the oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and oregano. Brush both sides of chicken breasts with oil mixture and set aside.

Place the chicken breasts in the air fryer on the grill plate or basket. Turn the chicken over and continue to cook for an additional 5 to 7 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 165 °F.

Remove the chicken to a clean cutting board and allow resting for at least 3 minutes. Mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach are good pairings.

Add the chicken, celery, scallions, almonds, parsley, and tarragon. Place a leaf of lettuce on 4 slices of toasted bread.

Crispy and gooey when done right, but too often oily and soggy, chicken Parmesan seemed an ideal candidate for the air fryer. But we soon learned that, without a pan of hot oil, the coating of crunchy pinko bread crumbs refused to brown.

This was easily fixed: Pretesting the pinko in the microwave with a bit of olive oil turned it richly golden. To streamline the breading process, we whisked the flour and egg together, adding garlic powder and dried oregano for flavor.

We dipped our chicken in this mixture and then pressed it in the toasted pinko that we'd combined with grated Parmesan for an extra hit of cheesiness and an even crunchier texture. We sprinkled on shredded mozzarella and cooked the cutlets just long enough to melt the cheese.

Return basket to air fryer and cook until cheese is melted, about 1 minute. Top each breast with 2 tablespoons warm marinara sauce and sprinkle with basil.

No worries if you aren’t on the air fryer wagon yet because you can make these healthy baked chicken strips in an oven, too. The other dish is where they’ll take a dip into the almond flour breading mixture.

Because the chicken strips are long and relatively thin, I find that it’s easiest to use two rectangular baking dishes. In a wide bowl or a shallow dish, combine the almond flour, salt, turmeric, garlic powder, and black pepper.

Next, whisk the egg in the other wide bowl or shallow dish, and set that aside. Coat one chicken tender at a time in egg and then dredge in the turmeric almond flour mixture.

Repeat until all the chicken tenders have a coating of almond flour mixture. Remove once cooked and place on a warm plate to rest for a few minutes before serving.
