Air Fryer Crispy Chicken Tenders

We did it! Our first Air Fryer recipe, and let’s just say, there are going to be A LOT more to come! So if you don’t have one, you should! I got mine at Costco for $60 and it works like a charm! I love it because you don’t have to fuss with preheating an oven and warming up the house (or my tiny, hot apartment)! Super easy clean up and a low fat way to make your food crispy and delicious!

These Chicken tenders did not disappoint! I made them with almond flour and they cooked super fast and they turned out much crispier than they do in the oven!



  • 1 pound chicken breast, sliced into “tender” style pieces
  • 1/4 cup Almond Flour (I used Trader Joes almond meal)
  • Trader Joes Everyday Seasoning (you can sub this out for garlic, paprika, pepper & salt – about a teaspoon of each)
  • 1 Whole Egg


  • Preheat Air Fryer to 400 degrees
  • Whisk your egg in a small bowl
  • Mix almond flour and spices in a shallow, large bowl
  • Dip each piece of chicken in the egg, make sure it’s fully coated
  • Dip in almond flour mixture, until fully coated
  • Spray Air Fryer with non-stick spray
  • Place chicken in fryer, spaced apart, spray with non-stick spray
  • Cook for 5 minutes, then flip and cook for 5 more

WA-LA! Enjoy!
