Parmesan Ranch Air Fryer Chicken Tenders

I’ve tried several different versions of Air Fryer chicken tenders recipes in the past year – some good, some not so good. And I came to this conclusion… if I was going to post a recipe for air fryer chicken tenders, they would have all of the ingredients I wished I was eating when trying the others. I normally don’t go ALL out, trying to keep my recipes from being either too fatty, processed or complicated. Well, this time… I kept it as simple as possible and added all the goodness my heart requested to make them as delicious as my inner fat kid wanted them to be! It worked.

    This was very good. I didn’t have the ranch seasoning so I just used some Cajun seasoning and it was still good.

    Thanks for all of your recipes!

    This turned out great! I also didn’t have the ranch dressing mix so I mixed in garlic powder, salt, pepper, parsley, and basil with the mayonnaise. Thanks for sharing your recipes!
