You will know they are done when the inside temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit- you can check this using a meat thermometer.
I’m ALL about the recipe variations. For these air fryer chicken tenders no breading, feel free to get creative with the seasonings to make them suit you and your crew. Here’s a few fun ideas:
Italian: Season the tenders with some Italian spice blend along with some salt and pepper.
Cajun: Go ahead and use a cajun spice blend along with some salt and pepper, and maybe some cayenne pepper if you like a bit of kick.
Greek: A Greek spice blend sprinkled over top the chicken tenders would also be delicious!
Chicken tenders are SUCH a classic comfort food, so go ahead and serve them alongside whatever you desire. I would suggest baking up some crispy baked sweet potato fries or parsnip fries in the oven while the air fryer cooks the chicken, along with a side of kale salad with cranberries to add some green goodness to your plate. Any way you enjoy these chicken tenders, they are sure to be a HIT!
