These Everything Bagel Seasoning Chicken Fingers are super easy and quick to make using your air fryer. Everything Bagel Seasoning kicks up the flavor to make the zippiest, crispiest, and totally delicious chicken fingers around!
In my opinion, Everything Bagel Seasoning makes almost any savory food taste better! That’s definitely the case with these Everything Seasoning Chicken Tenders. They’re packed with flavor!
These chicken fingers. get an extra burst of flavor from Everything Bagel Seasoning, which contains poppy seeds, sesame seeds, dried minced garlic and onion, and sea salt. I always have it on hand in my kitchen!
You can use your favorite brand of everything bagel style seasoning. For this recipe we used Sam’s Choice Everything Seasoning, but I also love the McCormick Everything Bagel All Purpose Seasoning and Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend is super popular.
These yummy chicken fingers are perfect as an appetizer with your favorite dipping sauce or served as a main dish along with veggies.
This simple recipe requires only 4 ingredients plus a bit of cooking spray and takes only minutes to make. You really can’t get any easier!
Our family loves these yummy chicken tenders both ways but they are especially great as a hearty appetizer while watching the game on TV. These are two of our other favorites:
Homemade Game Day PotatoSkins: This easy Homemade Game Day Potato Skins recipe would pair perfectly with the chicken fingers for a party or appetizer any time.
Mozzarella Stick Caprese Bites: For a lighter appetizer or snack that will pair perfectly with chicken fingers, these Mozzarella Stick Caprese Bites will be a hit! They are quick and easy to make starting with frozen cheese sticks.
What makes these chicken fingers extra crispy is cooking them in the air fryer. If you don’t have one, you can choose to bake them in the oven (we recommend 15-20 minutes at 425°F, cooked on a cookie sheet coated with cooking spray – turn over once during cooking).
But, since we do love how great these turn out in the air fryer, here are some tips on choosing one.
How to Choose an Air Fryer:
If you haven’t yet purchased a hot air fryer, I recommend doing a bit of research as to which one to choose.
There are differences as to the quantity you can cook at once, how much counter space is needed for the airfryer, control panel options and, of course, price.
One of the most highly rated air fryers is the Ninja Air Fryer. It holds up well when comparing the food it cooks to traditionally deep-fried foods and it has a 4-quart ceramic-coated basket.
I recently received the PowerXL Vortex Air Fryer. I haven’t yet used it, but am excited to give it a try and let you know what I think.
I do see that it has great ratings and even without trying it yet, I LOVE the bright red color! (It’s also available in black if red isn’t your thing.)
I have personally used an Avalon Bay Air Fryer. While I liked the way it cooked the food, the handle on mine broke, making it hard to replace and remove the cooking basket.
I can’t totally place the blame on the fryer as I may have helped contribute to it breaking – so I’m undecided on that point!
When you choose your air fryer, just think about the features and size you need, then read reviews on the model you’re considering before making your final purchase decision.
