  • 1 package Frozen Chicken Tenders


  • Remove the amount of frozen tenders you want to cook from the freezer bag.
  • Place the tenders into the air fryer basket (no need to oil unless you want to).
  • Air Fry the frozen chicken strips at 380F/193C for 12-14 minutes. I typically let my chicken tenders rest for 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove tenders from the air fryer and serve with your favorite dipping sauce.



  • CAN I USE TYSON FROZEN CHICKEN STRIPS OR TYSON AIR FRIED CHICKEN? Yes, you can use both. Tyson is a great brand to select when you are going to make chicken tenders. We’ve used the Tyson Frozen Chicken Strips and have had great luck. We have also recently gotten the Tyson Air Fried Chicken. What’s neat about the Tyson Air Fryer Chicken is that it actually gives you air fryer directions right on the package.
  • CAN I STACK THE FROZEN CHICKEN STRIPS IN AIR FRYER? I would advise against stacking your frozen chicken strips in the air fryer. You can stack the chicken pieces side by side, but do not layer on top of each other. You want the circulating air in the air fryer to be able to touch all sides of the chicken.
  • HOW DO I KNOW WHEN MY AIR FRYER CHICKEN STRIP IS FULLY COOKED Chicken is fully cooked at 165F/73C. You can use a meat thermometer to determine the temperature. You can also tear a tender open to inspect it.
  • HOW LONG DO YOU FRY TYSON CHICKEN TENDERS? If you are using Tyson Air Fried Chicken I would air fryer the tenders at  380F/193C for 12-14 minutes.
