I just bought my first air fryer, and to be honest, I am officially in my air fryer era. It’s fast, easy, and most importantly, doesn’t use as much oil as a traditional fryer. Another great invention in this technological world.


Let me share one of my favorite recipes using the air fryer with you. It’s by Gimme Delicious on YouTube. It’s delicious and takes only about 20 mins to make, perfect for rush hour meals.


  • 1 pound chicken tenders
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • Honey mustard sauce


Prepare all the needed ingredients.

Using a whisk, combine mayo, Dijon mustard, honey, vinegar, ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp paprika, and ½ tsp garlic powder in a mixing bowl. Mix until all of the ingredients are evenly distributed.

In a separate bowl, add in 1 cup panko breadcrumbs, 1 cup of Italian breadcrumbs, and ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese. Mix well until evenly incorporated.

In another bowl, crack 1 large egg and add in 2 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tbsp freshly chopped parsley, ½ tsp garlic, ½ tsp paprika, ½ tsp black pepper, and ½ tsp salt. Whisk well until all the ingredients are incorporated. Then, add in 1 pound of chicken tenders and combine well with the egg mixture.

Cover each chicken tender with the breadcrumb’s mixture and place each in the air fryer pan. When all the chicken tenders are in, spray with cooking spray. Place the chicken in the air fryer and fry for 12 minutes. Flip the chicken halfway. Carefully transfer the chicken to a platter and dip it in mayo sauce.
