  • Air Fryer
  • 1 large bowl
  • 1 medium-sized bowl

  • 1 pound chicken tenders, thawed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • olive oil or avocado oil spray


  • Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees F. Serve with dipping sauce!
  • Wash and dry chicken tenders with paper towel.
  • In a bowl, beat eggs.
  • In a separate bowl, combine almond flour, paprika, garlic powder, pepper, onion powder, oregano and baking powder.
  • Dip each chicken tender into beaten eggs, then dip in almond-spice mixture and place on waxed paper or plate.
  • Place chicken tenders into air fryer basket. This will require two rounds of cooking.
  • Spray the top of the chicken tenders in the basket lightly with olive or avocado oil spray (or brush chicken tenders lightly with olive or avocado oil), and then set timer for 12 minutes.
  • Flip chicken tenders after 6 minutes and spray or brush other side of chicken tenders lightly with oil spray/oil.
  • While they’re cooking, dip the rest of the chicken tenders in beaten egg and then almond-spice mixture and then cook the remaining tenders in air fryer per previous instructions.
  • Serve with sauce. (I used plum sauce.)
