Air Fryer Chicken Fingers
Looking for something fun to make this week that the entire family will enjoy? Then you’ve gotta try these crispy chicken fingers! This is my new FAVORITE method for making crispy fingers at home because they’re always crispy! Lots of flavor and just super easy and good!
My kids sure loved chicken fingers when they were little (actually so did I!) I wish I’d had this recipe 10 years ago – but it’s never too late to enjoy a childhood favorite!
I think these chicken fingers would be absolutely AMAZING on top of a big salad with tomato, cucumber, onions, and pickles – if you’re looking to make more of a meal out of it.
Our FAVORITE Dip ideas:
- 1 lb skinless boneless chicken tenders
- sea salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 eggs, room temp
- 2 Tbsps avocado oil or olive oil
- fresh parsley to garnish
- ½ cup almond flour
- ½ cup ground parmesan cheese
- ½ tsp onion powder
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsps smoked paprika
- 2 tsps Italian seasoning
Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees f and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
Slice your chicken tenders in half, lengthways to make thin strips.
Season strips lightly with sea salt and pepper and stir to combine.
Beat the eggs with the oil together in a large bowl and place all of your chicken pieces into this mixture.
Fill another bowl with the remaining ingredients for the breading.
Whisk to combine these ingredients well, then spread the breading onto a small, rimmed sheet pan.
Using a pair of tongs, take the chicken from your egg mixture one by one, and coat with the breading pressing down a bit to adhere; Set aside on your prepared sheet pan.
Air fry your chicken fingers in separate batches (they need space between each one to crisp up), for 6-8 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.
Serve with your favorite dips, sprinkle with fresh parsley if desired, and enjoy!
