Every now and then I get a big craving for some spicy and crispy chicken, which is why I created this air fryer buffalo chicken tenders recipe! Chicken tenders are my Husband’s favorite and the spicier they are, the better. Since both of us have an autoimmune disease, we consciously choose what we put into our bodies.
This recipe is perfect for both lunch and dinner and is even more filling if you place over a salad. Do you have little ones that do NOT love spicy? No worries, this recipes allows you to add the buffalo sauce after air frying, which means you can leave some tenders with NO SPICE!
In our household we toggle between eating close to Whole 30/Paleo and low carb because it works for us and keeps our autoimmune diseases under control. When I first did the Whole 30, I did not have an air fryer, but boy do I wish I did – it truly is a game changer, and I highly recommend it!
What if I do not have an air fryer?
Maybe you want to enjoy my air fryer buffalo chicken tenders, but you do not have an air fryer, that is okay! You can always bake them! Just pre-heat your oven to 375F and bake for 15-20 minutes. I would recommend placing parchment paper down on the baking sheet to ensure that they do not stick. Make sure after cooking that the chicken is measuring at 165F before serving. If you want it extra crispy, throw it under the broiler for 1-2 minutes after baking.
