Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Breast Strips

pechuga de pollo para freidora de aire sin aceite best air fryer chicken recipes chicken strips without oil

When it comes to chicken recipes, there’s nothing as great as crispy chicken strips. This Air Fryer chicken breast recipe is not only delicious, but also quick and insanely easy to make. We love this recipe especially for children (and those young at heart), because it’s a way of having crispy chicken strips without the harmful oils of deep-frying techniques.

These strips are also a great option for entertaining guests, especially as appetizers during a party or quick snacks. It’s also yet another way to exploit the benefits of your Air Fryer. It takes little time, it tastes great, and above all, it’s simple. We like to accompany these with tomato sauce, barbecue sauce and sweet honey mustard. They also make a great and fun dinner for those days of the week when the salad just won’t cut it. However, it continues to be a guilt-free way of enjoying a crispy meal. If you try it and love it, let us know in the comments!
