  • 8 Frozen Chicken Strips


  • Preheat the Air Fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare the air fryer basket if needed with nonstick cooking spray or olive oil.
  • Add the frozen chicken pieces in a single layer in the prepared air fryer basket.
  • Air Fry the chicken strips at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 minutes of cooking time. No flipping is required.
  • Once the time is up, allow the chicken strips to remain in the basket for an additional few minutes to continue cooking and heating through.
  • Carefully remove the cooked chicken tenders from the air fryer basket and serve with your favorite dipping sauce.


My favorite dipping sauce is ketchup, but you can also use other dipping sauces such as Ranch dressing, marinara sauce, honey mustard, or blue cheese dressing.
You can serve this dish with french fries, sweet potato fries, or even mashed potatoes and gravy with Texas toast.
