Tater Tots with crispy chicken tenders

Crunchy Air Fryer Tater Tots
32 oz bag tater tots
2 tablespoon avocado oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
Add 32 oz of frozen tater tots to a large bowl. Then add 2 tablespoons of avocado oil, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, half a teaspoon of paprika, then salt and pepper to taste.
Combine the seasoning with the tater tots using a large spoon or your clean hands.
Now preheat your basket air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Then add the seasoned tater tots to the air fryer basket and Cook for about 15 minutes. Make sure to shake around the basket every five minutes for even browning.

Frozen Chicken Tenders in Air Fryer

1/2 lb-1 lb frozen chicken tenders
Cooking spray or oil – only if you have a non-stick unit.
Optional dipping sauce- BBQ, Ranch, honey mustard, ketchup
Preheat the air fryer on 360F for 3-5 minutes.
If you have a non-stick cooking basket there’s no need to add oil or cooking spray, if you have an oven style unit then you’ll want to add a little oil or cooking spray to keep the chicken from sticking.
Place the chicken in a single layer in the basket or on the pan, this is not a recipe that does well to stack in an air fryer.
Set the cooking time to 10 minutes and after the frozen chicken strips cook in the air fryer for 5 minutes, flip them over. They could take 10-12 mins+ to cook depending on your preference and model.
Remove when crispy on the outside, serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce such as ketchup, Ranch dressing, or BBQ sauce.
Preheat the air fryer to help cook the recipe evenly
Take the air fryer frozen chicken tenders and slice them on salads, make chicken tacos by wrapping them up in a tortilla.
Flip the tenders half way if they aren’t browning evenly. All models of air fryers work a little differently.
Some brands of frozen chicken strips in air fryer could take a shorter or longer amount of time to cook because they might not be a uniform size. Even in our bag we had jumbo pieces and really small pieces. Use our recipe for air fryer frozen chicken strips as a starting guideline.
Chicken tenders will need some air between them, so be sure not to overcrowd. Cook in batches if needed.
As long as you’re using precooked boneless strips this method will work for air frying buffalo chicken strips or even small chicken nuggets. Just reduce the time by a few minutes if the chicken pieces are small.
