INSTRUCTIONS

  • 1 For the Honey Mustard Sauce, mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • 2 For the Chicken Tenders, whisk buttermilk, egg, 1/2 teaspoon of the garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper in large bowl. Add chicken, tossing to coat. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes. Meanwhile, mix flour, remaining 1 teaspoon each garlic powder and salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper in large shallow dish.
  • 3 Add 3 tablespoons of the buttermilk mixture to flour mixture, mixing with fork to blend well. Working in batches, remove chicken from milk mixture, shaking to remove excess liquid. Place chicken in flour mixture, pressing gently to coat. Discard any remaining milk and flour mixtures.
  • 4 Spray air fryer basket with no stick cooking spray. Preheat air fryer on 380°F for 3 minutes. Place chicken tenders in single layer in basket; do not overcrowd. Spray lightly with no stick cooking spray. Cook 7 minutes. Flip tenders and spray again with no stick cooking spray. Cook 7 minutes longer or until chicken is cooked through and lightly browned. Repeat with remaining chicken tenders, as needed. Serve with Honey Mustard Sauce for dipping.

    Test Kitchen Tip: Air Fryer cooking temperatures vary; adjust temperature and time as needed.
