Air Fryer Meals: Homemade Chicken Tenders

By now I’m sure you’ve read about my love for my Avalon Bay AB-Air Fryer100WIt makes all of my favorites using NO OIL!  I love the versatility that it offers me when making lunch or dinner.

Last night my boyfriend wanted a quick meal to eat + I only had a limited number of groceries in my freezer/refrigerator.  I had some chicken tenderloins so I decided to make homemade chicken tenders.

Here’s the quick + easy recipe:


+ 1 lb raw chicken tenderloins

+ 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

+ 1 egg


1) Season chicken tenderloins with the seasonings of your choice.  I used adobo, garlic + black pepper.

2) Dip chicken tenderloins (one by one)  in egg + coat both sides.

3) Roll each chicken tenderloin in panko bread crumbs.  Coat evenly.

4) Spray a little olive oil spray at the bottom of the air fryer pan + lay 6-7 tenderloins on the tray.

5) Set your air fryer to 392° + cook for 20 minutes.

6) Choose dipping sauces + enjoy!

Here’s the finished product:

    Why does mine turn out black in places and totally not browned anywhere else? I just got my air fryer and so far my experiments haven’t been going well. I used a flour and bread crumb combination.

      Do you have the Avalon Bay air fryer? Also, my recipe uses panko crumbs. I tend not to use flour in the air fryer because it doesn’t cook as well to me.

    Just bought one this week and so far have done fries and frozen fish which tasted delicious. Tried chicken breast using flour and egg batter, I didn’t care for it but the wings without any batter were good. Will try doing it your way and see how it turns out.
