Ingredients for Hot Honey Chicken Tenders

chicken tenders1.5 pounds
all-purpose flour⅓ cup 
salt1 tsp 
paprika1 tsp 
garlic powder1 tsp 
black pepper½ tsp
panko breadcrumbs1 ⅓ cup
hot honey⅓ – ½ cup

Preparation for Hot Honey Chicken Tenders

  1. Prepare a baking sheet with a rim by lining it with parchment paper and preheating the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Alternately, preheat your air fryer to 380 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Put the flour in a shallow basin that’s not too big. The eggs should be beaten in a separate, shallow basin. Panko, salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder should be mixed together in a third, more shallow bowl.
  3. Chicken tenders should have all of the fat and tendons removed before cooking. Alternately, if you are using boneless and skinless chicken breasts, slice them into strips that are 1 inch thick.
  4. After that, dry them well with paper towels.
  5. Taking one chicken tender at a time, coat it well in flour, then brush off any excess flour. Repeat with the remaining chicken tenders.
  6. After that, dunk it in the eggs, and then, for the last step, coat it with panko breadcrumbs. Make sure the chicken is well coated by coating it with the panko bread crumbs using your hands.
  7. It is necessary to repeat step 4 with the remaining bids.
  8. Place the chicken tenders that have been breaded onto a baking sheet that has been coated with parchment paper and gently spray them with cooking spray.
  9. Bake the chicken for 10 to 14 minutes, or until it is golden brown, crispy, and reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  10. When using an air fryer, place the chicken tenders that have been breaded into the basket of the air fryer once it has been warmed and gently coat them with cooking spray.
  11. Fry the chicken in an air fryer set to 380 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 to 11 minutes, until it is golden and crispy and the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  12. In the meanwhile, bring the honey to a boil in a microwave-safe dish for twenty to thirty seconds.
  13. As soon as the chicken is cooked through, sprinkle or coat the tenders with the hot honey that has been warmed up, and then dig in!
