I have not tried this exact recipe, but I've done chicken in my air fryer for over a year, nuggets, strips, whole pieces, wings, with various coatings, sauces, and even plain. . I read this recipe in the special chicken issue earlier today, and noted the comment from a reviewer stating that you should preheat your air fryer for 20 minutes. I just received my copy of America's Test Kitchen "Air Fryer Perfection" and they tested whether or not you should preheat your air fryer. One of the virtues of air fryers is that they come up to heat very rapidly, within a minute or two. ATK did not think preheating was necessary and neither do I. It wastes time and electricity. Turning and rotating the food halfway through cooking, or shaking the basket, will insure that all sides are crispy. Also, she was right about not overloading the basket.
It was good and easy. I coated the chicken tenderloins in flour then egg and panko crumbs. Turned out perfect and juicy. I went for 15 min though cause it was pink still at 12 min.
Made exactly as written using Panko breadcrumbs and these were perfect as written. Plan on 20 minutes for your airfryer to preheat and do not over fill your basket. The chicken pieces should not be touching each other if you want that crispness on all sides.
