Gluten Free Chicken Tenders Recipe

These amazing gluten free chicken tenders are easy and delicious. Using corn flakes to crust the chicken tenders makes them wonderfully light, fully crunchy, and quick for any weeknight (made in the air fryer or baked). Just because they are GF doesn’t make them any less amazing (trust me, I can house a batch no problem). Feel free to pair this with my Hot Honey Fried Chicken glaze, which takes this these gluten free chicken tenders recipe to 11!
