I barely choose the air fryer as a result of it will get them a bit crispier all the best way round, in order that’s my most popular technique.

This recipe makes use of 20 ounces of uncooked rooster strips and for me this was 12 tenders. When breaded and cooked, the completed tenders weighed a bit of over 21 ounces whole, so every serving was about 5.25 ounces by weight. For me, this was three tenders every.

Something rooster that’s minimize off to make these I then minimize into small chunks to make rooster bites.
