How to cook
Gather and portion ingredients.
Preheat air fryer to 400 °F
Run the air fryer at 400°F for about 5 minutes to bring it up to temp.
Add the cornflakes to the base of a food processor and season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper.
Pulse the cornflakes in the food processor until crushed into crumbs.
Crack the eggs in a bowl and season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper.
Dredge the chicken tenders in egg and then coat in the cornflake crumbs. Use one hand for the egg and the other hand for the cornflakes to keep your hands as clean as possible!
Coat all the pieces of chicken and place on a baking sheet until ready to fry.
