 1 lb chicken tenderloins
 1 egg
 ½ cup superfine Almond Flour
 ½ cup powdered Parmesan cheese
 ½ tsp kosher salt
 1 tsp black pepper
 ½ tsp cajun seasoning, or cayenne, or chili powder
1

Preheat air fryer to 370º F.

Mix the almond flour along with all of the other seasoning in a separate bowl. Coat each chicken tender in the egg mixture, followed by rolling in the almond flour mixture, and place on the parchment paper on top of the baking pan.

3

Spray the air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray or olive oil spray. Place the chicken tenders in the air fryer basket. Make sure the tenders are not touching, air will need to flow between them as they cook.

4

Spray a little of the cooking spray on top of each tender and turn the timer on for 12 minutes. Halfway through, pause cooking and flip the tenders and spray the other side with cooking spray and finish cooking. Cook until golden brown or until the internal temperature reads 175°F. Repeat this step until all tenders are cooked.
