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.
Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
Pat the chicken breasts dry between paper towels, then cut each breast into 6 equal tenders, about 1 ounce each. Season with a pinch of salt and a few grinds of black pepper.
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.
Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F. Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. 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.
Garnish the roll-ups with the scallions, cilantro, and chiles and serve with sweet Thai chili sauce.
