Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenders
8 boneless skinless chicken tenders
1 pound bacon (about 12 slices cut in half)
1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
1/4 cup bbq sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees F for 5 minutes. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
Roll the bacon around the chicken pieces, wrapping it tightly. Mix the rub ingredients in a medium bowl and gently toss each bacon-wrapped chicken tender in the mixture and place it on a parchment covered sheet.
Arrange the chicken pieces in one layer in the air fryer basket not touching each other, make sure there is space between them. Mix the two sauces in a bowl and brush the mixture on top of the chicken.
Air fry for 5 minutes at 400 degrees F. Flip, brush again with the sauce and air fry for another 4-5 minutes, or until crisp.
Remove to a plate covered with a paper towel while you cook the remaining chicken. Serve wuth your favorite dipping sauce.
