My Ninja Foodiair fryer is my new kitchen wonder. Recently, I worked on a recipe for crispy keto chicken tenders, and this one was a total hit.
What I love about cooking meats in the air fryer, is that you get a satisfying crisp factor, while also keeping your proteins super juicy and tender.
Plus, it’s all done super quickly.
Ingredients for Keto Chicken Tenders
The ingredients for these keto chicken tenders is pretty standard, minus the breading.
2 lbs chicken tenders – fat removed. You can also use two pounds of chicken breasts, and slice them into 1-in wide slices
Crack your eggs and separate your yolks from your whites. Store the yolks in an airtight container to use for later.
Dip your chicken tenders in the egg whites, and then into the pork rind mixture.
Shake of excess mixture.
Spray with a light coating of olive oil cooking spray.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through. The chicken is done when an inserted thermometer reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
You can leave them in the air fryer a little longer if you want them extra crispy.
Any dipping sauce will do here. Ranch is a solid option, garlic aioli is delicious, or eating them plain tastes super delicious.
You can make these in your oven if you don’t have an air fryer.. Bake them at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until a thermometer reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
