I absolutely love these half and half chicken tenders. This recipe is easily one of my go to recipes on a weekly basis. I love using my air fryer because you still get the crispness of oil frying with little to no oil, they are so much healthier without compromising the taste and texture.
Not only are these so fresh and juicy, but they are also so easy to make with a few simple ingredients! I love dipping them in my favorite sauces, cutting them up and adding them to my salads during the week or even throwing together a delicious chicken sandwich. When it comes to these guys, the meal options are endless. Make these at the start of the week to ensure you have a few different meals for the next couple of days.
The reason they are called half and half chicken tenders is not because they are made with half and half creamer, a little secret: they aren’t! But, because I incorporate half healthy ingredients such as almond flour and gluten free bread crumbs and mix it in with regular everyday ingredients such as all purpose flour and regular Italian seasoned bread crumbs. So, the two main elements that make up the coating is half healthy and half regular. So, you could say these are healthyish between the mix of air frying which eliminates the oils, the almond flour and the gluten free bread crumbs.
When it comes to the products I used in this recipe, I highly recommend sticking to the brands in the photo above, see some of my notes below on the three main ones that make up the coating:
