Gluten Free Chicken Tenders in the Air Fryer
Enjoy mouth-watering gluten free chicken tenders that are prepared in the air fryer for a crispy outside and moist, tender inside.
- 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.
