Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine tapioca starch, jerk seasoning, and garlic in a shallow bowl for the dry mix. Beat together egg and hot sauce in a separate shallow bowl for the egg wash. Combine corn flakes and coconut flakes in a third shallow bowl for the crust.

  • Dip each chicken tender into the dry mix, shaking off excess spice. Dip into egg wash, draining excess, and dredge through the crust mixture. Repeat steps for each tender.

  • Place crusted chicken tenders into the air fryer basket and cook on high for 6 minutes. Turn tenders and cook for another 6 minutes until chicken is cooked through and coating is crisp.

Cook's Note:

If desired, you can cut the tenders into nugget sizes before breading if they're too big.
