Air-Fryer Chicken Tenders Recipe: How to Make It


  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup potato sticks, crushed
  • 1/2 cup crushed cheese crackers
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh chives
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1 pound chicken tenderloins
  • Additional sour cream and chives


  1. Preheat air fryer to 400°. In a shallow bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients. In another shallow bowl, whisk butter and sour cream. Dip chicken in butter mixture, then in crumb mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
  2. In batches, arrange chicken in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket; spritz with cooking spray. Cook until coating is golden brown and chicken is no longer pink, 7-8 minutes on each side. Serve with additional sour cream and chives.
