Air fryer chicken strips- method

There are only a few simple steps you need to follow in order to make these amazing chicken strips, so let’s get started.

Step 1
We are going to start off with marinating the chicken. To marinate the chicken, combine the garlic with the yoghurt and salt. Cut the chicken into roughly 3cm/1¼in wide strips and marinate in the yoghurt mixture for at least 20 minutes, or if you have the time it will be good to leave it overnight.

Step 2
Next we are going to start off the chicken strips. Grab a large bowl and mix together and combine all of your weighed out flour, breadcrumbs, paprika, garlic granules, cayenne pepper and a generous amount of salt and pepper and this will create your dredging mixture. In a smaller bowl or a cup beat the egg and pop in a little pinch of salt and pepper. Shake off any excess yoghurt from each chicken strip before dipping it first in the egg, then in the dredging mixture. Use one hand for wet ingredients and another for dry to avoid coating your fingers

Step 3
Spray the bottom of the air fryer basket with olive oil spray and arrange a single layer of chicken strips in the bottom. Now we are going to cook our tenders! Spray the top of the chicken strips with oil before air-frying for 15 minutes at 200C, turning roughly halfway through. Repeat until all the chicken strips are cooked (you may need to work in batches to make sure they are all evenly cooked!)

Step 4
While your chicken is cooking it is time to make all of the sauce! Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl, and mix. Then pop them into a little dish and put them on the side of your plate, then once your chicken is cook (cut down the middle of one to test there is no pink) pop these on a plate and serve! Enjoy!
