How to Serve

Serve these chicken tenders hot from the air fryer, accompanied by your favorite dipping sauces such as honey mustard, ranch, or marinara. They’re also great in wraps, on salads, or simply on their own with a side of roasted vegetables or a fresh salad.

How to Store

Leftover chicken tenders can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the air fryer or oven to maintain their crispiness before serving.


  • Ensure the chicken tenders are dry before coating them to help the breading stick better.
  • Spray the breaded chicken tenders lightly with olive oil spray before air frying to achieve an extra crispy exterior.
  • Don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket to allow for even cooking and crisping.
