Make delicious and easy Air Fryer Chicken strips with just two ingredients; chicken and Louisiana Fish Fry Air Fryer Coating Mix!

This post is sponsored by Louisiana Fish Fry, but all opinions are my own. 

Even though I’m a food blogger now, I was a picky eater as a child! My Mom, who is an absolute saint, would get up early to make me my school lunch. The list of things I would eat was pretty short, but she always made it work.

For special days, she would make homemade chicken strips. She hand-breaded and pan-fried them, then wrapped them in foil. When I’d take them out of my lunch box, they would still be warm! I don’t know how she made that work with a full-time job, but all Moms are superheroes, right?

Lucky for me, my son is not a picky eater at all! He will eat almost anything, but chicken strips are one of his most requested foods. I love to oblige him, because they’re a great way to work protein into his diet!

I have to be honest that the air fryer has been a lifesaver for me this year! My son has been in virtual school all fall, so I’m making three meals a day for him, plus snacks! I love anything that I can throw in the air fryer, and these Air Fryer Chicken Strips could not be any easier.

I use Louisiana Fish Fry Air Fryer Coating when I want to make crispy chicken, fish and pork in the air fryer! You might recognize the Louisiana Fish Fry name. They’re famous for their fish fry batter, seasonings and sauces.

Air Fryer Chicken Strips

I chose the Air Fryer Chicken Coating mix from Louisiana Fish Fry for this Air Fryer Chicken Strips recipe. The chicken strips were SUPER crunchy and had an amazing savory flavor.

These Air Fryer Chicken Strips were both kid AND husband approved, which is a big win in our house! My son dipped his in ketchup, and my husband dipped his in Louisiana Fish Fry Garlic Butter Sauce and in their Cajun Fire Hot Sauce.  

I love that the Louisiana Fish Fry Air Fryer Coating Mixes are so versatile, and interchangeable depending on your flavor preferences. The Air Fryer Chicken Coating mix is great with most proteins and with vegetables, too!
