  • Start by creating your production line. In one bowl mix together, egg and half of the lemon juice with the garlic puree and set aside.
  • In the blender add ½ of the gluten free oats until it resembles fine oats.
  • Place the blended oats in one bowl and then the non-blended oats in the other. Mix them up so that you take 25% of the blended oats into the non-blended and vice versa. This then means that you have 2 bowls one with majority blended and the other with majority unblended. The blended is now your fake flour and the unblended is your fake breadcrumbs.
  • Season the fake flour bowl with salt, pepper, mustard and parsley.
  • Season the fake breadcrumbs with salt, pepper and basil.
  • Slice up the chicken breast into medium sized tender shapes.
  • Place the chicken tenders into the flour bowl, then drench it in the egg mixture, then heavily coat it in the breadcrumbs mixture.
  • Then gently place it in the Air Fryer basket. Cook for 10 minutes at 175c/350f.
  • While they are cooking make your mayonnaise. Mix some regular mayonnaise with the last of the lemon, salt, pepper and a little mustard powder and mix well.
  • 10. Serve.


We prefer to use mayonnaise we have in and then add to the flavour. But you can use whatever you like. Its always best to line the bowls in order then it is easy to remember the correct order and speeds up the process of coating your chicken tenders.
When making Air Fryer chicken tenders, don’t be scared to coat your chicken fully and if its not sticking enough, then use your hands to pat on extra. Any excess will then fall off during the cooking process and give you a good all-round coating.
We use gluten free oats, but if you want a bread free and flour free option any gluten free flours are fine. If you wanted to add more wet ingredients to your chicken, then add it to the egg and give it a good mix. A favourite of mine is adding lime or some butter milk.
