  • 1/2 box cheese crackers crushed (1 full box if you’re using gluten free crackers)
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 package fresh chicken tenders
  • Vegetable oil spray


  • Place cheese crackers in a Ziploc bag and carefully crush the crackers. You want small pieces, but not into a pure powder. The small pieces will add texture to the tenders.
  • Pour the crushed crackers onto a deep dish and mix in the Parmesan cheese.
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the garlic salt and onion powder.
  • Dip the chicken tenders in the egg mixture, then coat in the crushed crackers. Pack the crumbs onto the tender.
  • Place the coated chicken tenders in one layer in the air fryer. You may need to do this in multiple batches to avoid overcrowding.
  • Lightly coat with vegetable oil spray.
  • Fry at 400 degrees for 12 minutes, flipping once after 8 minutes.
