Frozen chicken tenders (I used Tyson Chicken Tenders)


  1. Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees F (198 degrees C), if your air fryer requires this
  2. Cook chicken tenders for 10 minutes and flip chicken over (optional depending on your air fryer)
  3. Cook for an additional 4-6 minutes to desired crispness.

  • If you are cooking raw chicken tenderloins add an addition 4-6 minutes to the cooking time
