We took a road trip to Idaho last summer. We made a stop at Wingers, an incredible eatery. The Air Fryer Copycat Wingers Sticky Chicken Fingers were a huge hit with my kids.


The following expert advice will help you cook frozen chicken tenders in an air fryer:

  • Turn on the air fryer: Before frying the chicken tenders, turn on your air fryer for a few minutes. This will make it more likely that they will cook through and turn crispy.
  • Don’t overcrowd the air fryer: Avoid packing too many chicken tenders into the air fryer basket at once. This will make it more difficult for the hot air to circulate, which will cause uneven cooking and a less crispy texture.
  • Shake the basket: To guarantee that the chicken tenders cook through and get a uniform coating of breading, shake the basket a few times while they are cooking.
  • Apply cooking spray: To help the chicken tenders brown and crisp up, mist them with cooking spray before cooking.
  • Utilize a meat thermometer: Check the chicken tenders’ internal temperature with a meat thermometer. To make sure the chicken tenders are thoroughly cooked and safe to consume, they should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  • Modify cooking time: Depending on the size and thickness of the chicken tenders, modify the cooking time. It will take longer to cook thicker chicken tenders than thinner ones.
  • Serve right away: Serving chicken tenders right out of the air fryer will provide the optimum texture and flavor because they are best enjoyed hot and crispy.
