Keto-Air-Fryer-Chicken-Tenders

I’ve been playing around in the kitchen to make Keto chicken tenders because my kids love chicken tenders so much. I finally nailed a good recipe that I have to share. It’s seriously so good that my kids request it at least once a week. 

While you can take regular chicken breasts and cut them into tenders, I cheated and bought chicken tenderloins so I could skip a step of cutting them. I used the Ninja Foodi air fryer for these chicken tenders making them crispy and tender. You could bake them at 425 degrees for 25-30 which will also make them crispy.
