With rice paper wrappers, you can wrap chicken tenders and air fry them for a “fried” experience without the mess of deep frying. Simply soak a rice paper wrapper for few seconds, roll up a chicken tender in it and then let it cook in an air fryer until it's super crispy and crunchy. Try this method with your favorite protein for a quick weeknight meal or appetizer.



Special equipment:
a 6-quart air fryer
  1. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Pat the chicken breasts dry between paper towels, then cut each breast into 6 equal tenders, about 1 ounce each. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and a few grinds of black pepper.
  3. Soak 1 rice paper wrapper in a large shallow bowl of warm water until pliable, about 15 seconds, then lay on a cutting board. Arrange 1 chicken tender lengthwise across the middle of the wrapper. Fold the bottom of the wrapper over the chicken, then fold in the sides and roll up into a tight log. Place the roll-up on the prepared baking sheet and repeat with the remaining wrappers and chicken tenders.
  4. Preheat a 6-quart air fryer to 400 degrees F. Working in batches, place the roll-ups in a single layer in the basket, spacing them apart, then spray with them with cooking spray. Cook, flipping halfway through, until the roll-ups are golden brown and the chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
  5. Garnish the roll-ups with the scallions, cilantro, and chiles and serve with sweet Thai chili sauce.
