Air Fryer Pickle-Brined Chicken Tenders are juicy and flavorful with a crispy exterior.
Place chicken in a medium bowl. Add pickle juice. Cover and marinate for 6 to 8 hours. If chicken is not completely submerged, stir it once or twice during this time.
Drain chicken and pat dry with paper towels.
In a small bowl, whisk together egg, egg white, and milk.
Combine Panko crumbs, bread crumbs, salt, paprika, and pepper in a pie plate or shallow bowl.
Dip chicken tenders in egg mixture and then coat in bread crumb mixture.
Generously spray both sides of chicken with oil.
Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees.
Place 6 tenders in air fryer basket and air fry for 10 to 12 minutes, flipping over halfway through.
Repeat with remaining tenders.
