  • 1 pound frozen chicken tenders

  • avocado cooking spray

  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


  1. Rinse chicken tenders under cold running water and wash off any ice. Pat dry with paper towels. Lightly spray chicken tenders with avocado oil and season with salt and pepper.

  2. Place chicken tenders in an air fryer basket, making sure the pieces don't overlap.

  3. Cook in the air fryer at 360 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 15 minutes. Turn chicken tenders over and continue cooking until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 8 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

Use any additional seasoning you prefer.
