Spicy air fried chicken tenders


  • 500g chicken breast

  • Marinated in hot sauce for 1 hour minimum (or overnight).

  • Hot sauce ideas- Franks hot sauce, Nandos hot peri peri or Sriracha sauce. For pictures below I use 2 tablespoons of Nandos hot peri peri and 1 tablespoon Sriracha. Any hot sauce will work!

Breadcrumbs mix

  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs (traditional ideally not panko)

  • 1 heaped teaspoon chilli powder

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1/2 garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet smoked paprika

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 pepper

Side sauce ideas:

  • Ranch

  • Sour cream

  • Ketchup

  • BBQ


  • Marinade chicken for minimum 1 hour or overnight in either a bowl or snap lock bag.

  • Mix all dried ingredients together well for bread crumb mix.

  • Remove chicken breast from marinade and cut into 1 inch thick long strips.

  • One by one, place each chicken breast into bread crumbs mix and lightly coat. Place aside on plate.

  • Preheat air frier for a few minutes at 190 degrees before using.

  • Lightly spray the base with olive oil before adding chicken.

  • Arrange chicken ensuring as much as possible that chicken does not touch each other. Lightly spray top of tenders with olive oil spray. 

  • Air fry on 190 degrees for 15 minutes. Timing can depend on type/size of air frier, tenders should be golden and crispy. If unsure cut one in half to check thoroughly cooked through.

  • Serve and enjoy.
