Air Fryer Chicken Tenders

These air fryer chicken tenders are crisp on the outside and very tender in the inside. We are going to marinate chicken breast strips in a yogurt and lemon sauce for a minimum of 4 hours. We will them mix up some Panko breadcrumbs with spices and grated Parmesan cheese. Once they are coated we will place them in the fryer and cook them fo 12 minutes. Bam! Beautiful. Crisp. Tender. Finger-licking-good!

Although I am using chicken breast for this recipe you can definitely use chicken tenders, of course.

Please don’t stress out if you do not have all the spices that I am using in this recipe. Use the ones you have. The final result will still be pretty fabulous.

Finally, we will make a honey mustard sauce to go with these. It is super easy and really compliments the overall flavors.
