How to Use Your Air Fryer to Cook Turkey Tenderloins
It's easy and quick. I'm posting this "recipe," which isn't much of one, in case you wondered whether you can cook turkey tenderloins in your air fryer. Yes, you can. It takes about 20 minutes, depending on the size of the tenderloins. The tenderloins come out tender and juicy and are great "as is" or topped with your choice of sauce. I usually go for seasoned tenderloins--rotisserie or applewood smoked--and serve the slices plain. The left over slices, I turn into casseroles (if they don't get eaten first). Simple. Good. Easy. Enjoy!
Air Fryer Turkey Tenderloins -- Serves 4+
24 ounces of turkey tenderloins, seasoned or not
Salt and pepper, if the tenderloins aren't seasoned
Olive or canola oil spray
Line your air fryer basket with aluminum foil, arranging the foil so that it comes about two inches up the sides of your air fryer basket. I usually do a double layer of foil to ensure no leaks and make cleanup easier. Spritz the foil with non-stick or olive oil spray. Place the turkey tenderloins (they usually come two to a package) in the basket, arranging them so that one thicker side faces the thinner side on the opposite tenderloin. Spritz the tenderloins with olive oil or canola oil spray (or drizzle oil on them and use your fingers to spread it). Put the basket in the air fryer, set the temperature to 400 degrees, and cook the tenderloins for 15 minutes. Flip them over and cook them for about five minutes longer or until a meat thermometer registers at least 165 degrees when inserted in the thickest part of a tenderloin. Remove the tenderloins from the air fryer basket and let the tenderloins rest for at least five minutes before slicing them.
