Crispy, crunchy chicken fingers ready in under 30 minutes. For a complete meal, I serve them with coleslaw, corn on the cob, and a dipping sauce.

  • 1 pound chicken tenders

  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • 1 cup corn flakes, crushed

  • 1 serving avocado oil cooking spray


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Season chicken tenders with poultry seasoning, salt, and black pepper. Dip in egg and then coat with crushed cornflakes. Place in the air fryer basket and spray with avocado oil.

  3. Air fry for 7 to 8 minutes. Flip chicken tenders, spray with avocado oil again, and air fry for an additional 3 to 5 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
