  • 1 lb chicken breast * less in fine just cut other inredients
  • 3 tbsp Everything But The Bagel Seasoning * read notes
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tbs olive oil * optional read notes


  • Step 1. Clean chicken with cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Season the chicken on both sides.
  • Step 2. Cut the chicken into equal sized pieces. You can make the decision of size here. They need to be somewhat even in size so they cook correctly. 
  • Step 3. Place in Air Fryer or in oven. You can cook them in either. I recommend the air fryer because they get a nice crispy coat on them but the oil will help with that if cooking in the oven or on the stovetop. Lay the peeices close together but not overlapping one another. Cook on 390 for 14 minutes.
    Oven: Bake on parchemnt paper, drizzle in olive oil and bake at 350 for 16-20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. *be sure to check the biggest piece around 16 minutes so you don't over cook. Times will vary since tenders will be slightly different in size.
    Stovetop: Cook on medium head with oil, about 4 -6 minutes each side
  • Bonus: dunk in homemade honey mustard or BBQ Sauce


*Any seasoning is encouraged if you do not have everything but the bagel. I recommend 1 tsp rosemary, 1 tsp thyme, 1 tsp of garlic and onion powder in place of. You can't go wrong with seasoning so feel free to experiment. Everything but the bagel seasoning can be found at most chain grocery stores including Costco, Kroger and Trader Joes. 
*oil is for stovetop and oven cooking only!
