Breaded Chicken Tenders in the Air Fryer

It is easy enough to prepare breaded chicken tenders in the air fryer. Air frying chicken strips is a healthier alternative to the deep-fryer. The chicken strips are prepared very similar to how they would be when deep-fried by dipping chicken in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs. You will still want to spray the chicken strips with a little cooking spray for browning. You can serve these chicken strips with a dipping sauce if desired, I used ranch.
