Homemade Chicken Tenders

I adapted this recipe for Air Fryer Homemade Chicken Tenders, from a recipe I found over at The Black Rebecca, and thought I would share. Cooking times may vary depending on your model of Air Fryer. See notes for changes I made. Thanks!

Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 2 servings


  • 1 pound raw chicken tenderloins (see notes)
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 egg


  1. Cut chicken tenderloins into smaller pieces if so desired.

  2. Season the chicken pieces with seasonings of your choice.

  3. Dip chicken pieces, one at a time, in the egg coating both sides.

  4. Roll chicken tenders in bread crumbs, coating evenly.

  5. Spray a little olive oil on bottom of the air fryer pan.

  6. Place prepared tenderloins in a single layer in your air fryer pan - the size of your air fryer will determine how many can be cooked at a time.

  7. Set your air-fryer to 390°F and cook for 20 minutes.

  8. Allow to cool slightly and serve with your favorite dipping sauces.

Recipe Notes

I used chicken breast, which I cut into portions, and I also substituted herb seasoned stuffing for the panko bread crumbs.
