Chicken Tenders (Air Fryer)

Contributed By: Parker


1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup potato sticks, crushed
1/2 cup crushed cheese crackers
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
2 teaspoons minced fresh chives
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon sour cream
1 pound chicken tenderloins
Additional sour cream and chives


1. Preheat air fryer to 400°. In a shallow bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients. In another shallow bowl, whisk butter and sour cream. Dip chicken in butter mixture, then in crumb mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
2. In batches, arrange chicken in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket; spritz with cooking spray. Cook until coating is golden brown and chicken is no longer pink, 7 to 8 minutes on each side. Serve with additional sour cream and chives.
