Crumbed Chicken Tenderloins (Air Fryed)

    22 minutes

    These beat chicken nuggets any day and the recipe is so simple. I tend to use chicken tenderloins but you can use sliced chicken breasts if easier.

    Love this recipe, I added some lemon pepper to the breadcrumbs, and they were delicious! Might try with some garlic or chilli next time . 10/10 thank you Laurna.  -  17 Dec 2014


    Great recipe, I made sweet and sour dipping sauce to go with them. Thanks Laurna.  -  27 Sep 2015


    7.1.18 I had concerns about the lack of seasoning in this recipe, so I did use Italian-flavored panko breadcrumbs and substituted part of the vegetable oil with sesame oil. Ended up still needing more seasoning, so in the future, I’ll be adding more spices to the breadcrumb mixture. Super quick and easy to make, and they cooked up beautifully. I served these tenderloins with Summer Corn Salad and Quick And Easy Pierogies both (recipes on this site) last night, but I think they’d be perfect for a good old chicken sandwich on a toasted butter bun…next time!  -  01 Jul 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
