Strips of chicken rolled in crushed potato chips and air fried. The chicken turns out tender and flavorful and is quickly devoured!


  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 (12 oz) chicken breast, cut into strips (or 12 ounces chicken tenderloins)
  • 1 cup crushed potato chips


  1. In a bowl stir together mayo, chili powder, lemon zest, pepper and salt. 
  2. Dredge the chicken in the mayo mixture. 
  3. Roll the chicken in the potato chips.
  4. Place the chicken in the air fryer (you may need to work in batches). Air fry for 5 minutes at 400 degrees. Flip over and air fry for 5 more minutes. 
  5. Serve and enjoy (we liked ours with ketchup, barbecue sauce or chick-fil-a sauce).


This recipe can easily be doubled but you’ll need to work in batches so that the chicken is not overlapping in the air fryer.
