Instructions:

  1. For the Buttermilk Chicken Tenders: In a mixing bowl, combine the Panko breadcrumbs, celery salt, oregano, garlic powder and freshly ground pepper. Place the chicken tenders in a ziplock bag and pour the buttermilk into the bag. Seal the bag and shake to coat the chicken tenders.
  2. Place the breadcrumb mixture in a shallow bowl. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk and dredge in the breadcrumb mixture to coat well. Spray the chicken tenders with non-stick cooking spray on both sides and place them in your Air Fryer. Air fry at 380ºF for 5 minutes, then turn the tenders over, spray the tops with non-stick cooking spray again and air fry at 380ºF for 5 minutes more.
  3. For the Pesto Chicken Tenders: Combine the Panko breadcrumbs and Parmesan in a shallow bowl and season with salt and pepper. Working in batches, coat the chicken tenders with the pesto all over, then coat the tenders with the Panko Parmesan mixture, pressing to cover the tenders all over. Spray the chicken tenders with non-stick cooking spray on both sides and place them in your Air Fryer. Air fry at 380ºF for 5 minutes, then turn the tenders over, spray the tops with non-stick cooking spray again and air fry at 380ºF for 5 minutes more.
  4. For the Dipping sauce, whisk together the mayonnaise, BBQ Sauce and mustard.
