Air Fryer Doritos Chicken Tenders

Serves 6


9 oz. (255 g) Nacho Cheese Doritos
1 egg, beaten
2 pounds (910 g) chicken tenders, cut into thin strips.
1 teaspoon (5 ml) garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) salt
fresh black pepper to taste
For dipping: Ranch, sour cream, ketchup, BBQ sauce or your favorite sauce


Place Doritos or tortilla chips in a bag and crush them with a rolling pin into fine pieces. The smaller the chip pieces, the better they will stick to the chicken.

Cut the chicken into thin strips and season with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Put the beaten egg into a bowl.

Dip each chicken strip into the beaten egg then into the crushed Doritos. Gently press the chicken into the crushed tortilla chips, then use the spoon to pour chips over the top of the chicken. Gently press chips into chicken. This method allows the chips to stay dry. If they're wet, they stick less to the chicken.

Spray air fryer basket or racks with oil spray. Gently lay chicken pieces in the basket or on the racks. Spray oil spray on top of coated chicken.

Air Fry at 380F (195C) for 15 minutes. Gently turn the chicken pieces and spray the tops with oil spray (don't turn the chicken too rough or else the Doritos pieces will fall off). Air Fry for an additional 3-5 minutes, or until the crust is crispy golden brown and chicken is cooked through. Serve with your favorite dip or sauce!


You can bake these in your oven at 400F (204.4C) for 15-20 minutes, turning over once halfway through. Test to make sure that the chicken is no longer pink inside.

Substitute Nacho Cheese Doritos with any other flavored Doritos such as Salsa Verde, Spicy Sweet Chili or Cool Ranch
