Prep Time: 5 hours 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

 

Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken tenderloins

  • 1½ cups buttermilk

  • 1 tablespoon Louisiana hot sauce

  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2½ teaspoons salt

  • 1½ teaspoons black pepper

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • 2 teaspoons onion powder

  • 2 teaspoons paprika

  • 1½ teaspoons ground mustard

  1. MARINATE chicken tenders in buttermilk and hot sauce for 4 hours or overnight.

  2. ADD all the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.

  3. DREDGE the marinated chicken tenders in the mixture and shake off any excess.

  4. MIX ⅓ of the marinade into the seasoned flour and mix well. This will create little flakes.

  5. ALLOW the chicken to sit out for an hour until the coating gets tacky and dredge the tenders back in the flour. Set aside.

  6. SELECT Preheat on the Cosori Air Fryer and press Start/Pause.

  7. SPRAY a liberal coating of cooking spray on each side of the chicken tenders and place in the preheated air fryer.

  8. COOK the tenders at 400°F for 10 minutes, until golden brown and crispy.
