  • Lightly spray the air fryer basket after it is heated, so you’re your meat doesn’t stick. 
  • The tenders are completely cooked when a thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 165F. I recommend using an instant-read thermometer to check for doneness. 

Try serving this with a side of Cauliflower mashed potatoes, your favorite steamed veggies! Otherwise, try Garlic Parmesan Roasted Radishes, or a Creamy Homemade Coleslaw Salad. So good!
