Everyone loves Chicken Tenders. They are a delicious comfort food and a staple of childhood. These Low Carb Crispy Chicken Tenders are so flavorful PLUS they are completely mess free and ready in less then 30 minutes from start to finish!
As I am writing this, my kids are on their first day of summer break. During the school year, my kids mostly eat lunch at school, but now that I am responsible for feeding them I have been working on coming up with some quick and easy foods that they will eat without an argument.
These chicken tenders have quickly become one of my kids favorite foods. When I make them I almost always double or even triple the recipe so that I can have plenty of leftovers!
The seasoning for these tenders is pretty basic, so feel free to play around with it and make it your own!
I am pretty much the condiment queen and I LOVE dipping sauces! I usually use sugar free barbecue sauce, for these tenders. If I am low on fat for the day I will even add a little mayo to the BBQ which is delicious.
I have included directions for both oven and air fryer preparation, and the tenders will be great in either, although the air fryer gets them just a tad crispier and cooks them a little faster. Chic

- Preheat the oven to 425 degree F, and grease a foil lined baking sheet with 1/2 tbsp of olive oil.
