This recipe results in absolute perfection every single time. Using the air fryer to cook chicken is so quick and easy, and clean up is a cinch.

Having chicken meat ready for sandwiches, soups, and wraps is great for whipping up a quick meal with much-needed protein! All this amazing recipe needs is a whole chicken, a little olive oil and some seasonings.

That little of seasoning before cooking will guarantee the chicken turns out juicy and tender every time. Simply increase the cooking time, but be aware that the oil and seasonings may not stick as well to a frozen chicken.

Choose chickens that have intact skin, are evenly colored, and have a fresh scent to them. Those giblets and neck make perfect broth for soups and stews, so put them in the freezer and save them instead of discarding.

Tie the legs together with twine so the chicken stays moist as it cooks. To store air fryer chicken, remove the meat from the carcass and keep it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or the freezer for up to 3 months.

Refresh the flavors with a little salt and pepper, or make a quick gravy to serve over top! Rub the skin with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning.

When picking out a chicken, choose one with intact skin and a small enough size to fit in your fryer. Ensure your chicken will fit in your air fryer before starting.

To lock in the moisture while cooking, tie the legs together with twine. If your chicken is too large (and touches the top element), untie the legs if needed and/or press it to flatten it somewhat until it fits.

The crust is crackly and tasty, and as long as you don’t forget about it in your air fryer, it’s still going to be juicy. As with many things in the kitchen, it’s all about trade offs, but I think you would be silly to not try this if you have access to an air fryer.

I loved the recipe and was surprised by how close it got to my traditional deep-fried version. It takes 30 seconds to flip on the air fryer, and the cleanup is worlds easier than dealing with big pots of hot oil.

Chicken strips cook faster than bone-in pieces, so you run the risk of overcooking them and drying them out. Be sure to check strips frequently until they’re just cooked through (165° to 170F in the thickest part).

If you double dip your chicken in flour for the coating, it’s going to be hard to hydrate all that flour in an air fryer, and you’ll almost certainly end up with floury spots that haven’t really cooked. That provides a nice layer of breading on the chicken, but it isn’t so much flour that it’ll be a problem in the air fryer.

People were making fried chicken before air fryers were invented! I prefer to pan-fry my fried chicken in a cast iron skillet if I’m not using an air fryer.

You might think that it’s best to pop the airfryerchicken back in the air fryer for a few minutes to reheat it, but I don’t recommend that, actually. You run the risk of burning the exterior of the fried chicken.

Remove chicken pieces from buttermilk and shake off any excess; then dip in the flour mix and coat well. Transfer breaded chicken pieces to a clean plate or wire rack to rest.

Cook for 14 minutes, then flip the fried chicken with tongs, spray lightly with oil a second time on the bottom side of the chicken, and cook for another 10 to 12 minutes, until white meat reaches 165 °F and dark meat reaches 175 °F (I find that cooking the dark meat a little more makes it more tender). During the air frying process, if you pull out the chicken and notice any dry flour spots on the chicken, spray those spots lightly with oil.

Cooked fried chicken can be stored in the fridge for 5 days and reheated in a 300 °F oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Nick has been writing delicious recipes for the home cook for almost a decade.

From why, you want to cook it in the air fryer to the tools and accessories that make your life easier to cooking temperatures and times for every cut, we’ve got you covered. In terms of the quicker- chicken situation, I thought I had it down with my Instant Pot.

And while I do love cooking chicken in the Instant Pot, it’s not always the best it could be. That’s great for things like soups and stews but less good on sandwiches or pasta, or for eating on its own.

We’re not talking tons less, but quite a bit less, especially for larger pieces. Chicken breasts take around 15 minutes in the air fryer but 20+ in the regular oven.

You don’t have to heat up your whole oven to cook a batch of chicken. While the texture of the meat is similar to roasted, you get more browning, and thus more flavor, on the outside and it happens in a shorter amount of time.

If you’ve got any chicken skin going on, like with these wings or leg quarters, oh-my-god does it ever get crispy and amazing. When chicken skin is more limp, I tend to just pull it off and throw it out.

When the skin is all golden and crisp, I pull it off and eat it in one bite! I am not usually a gadget girl and tend to stick to traditional cooking utensils and techniques.

It’s the perfect method for cooking so many things, and for chicken, it’s the best. OK, so now that you know why to cook chicken in the air fryer, it’s time to find out how.

However, if you have something really saucy or with a lot of cheese that could melt, you can totally use a tray. What I typically do is to set my timer for 30-40% less time than I would for a regular oven.

Then I check the food and decide if it needs longer or not. For meat and poultry, I use an instant read thermometer to check the internal temperature.

Some people take poultry out at a bit lower temperature, like 155 °F and let it rest to come up the remainder of the way. I do think you get juicier chicken this way but it is not recommended for food safety reasons, as you can see here on the food safety.gov website.

Next, season it liberally with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Finally, it goes directly into the basket of the air fryer to cook until it reaches 165 °F internally.

This is because the skin doesn’t affect the specified cooking times. That means that the nicer side gets the final browning time in the air fryer.

This not only results in the nicer side up for the final cooking but also allows the extra juices from the back of the chicken to trickle towards the breast meat, and it protects the breast meat from over-drying, see here. Test the internal temperature using an instant read thermometer.

She's constantly writing, taking pictures, editing, managing contributors, and, oh yeah, cooking. Chicken breasts have a terrible reputation for drying out, but an air fryer keeps that from happening.

The quick cook time means they stay nice and tender and the breading still gets extra crispy from the intense air circulation inside these powerful little machines. We made this recipe straightforward and skipped the marinade because the crunchy coating makes up for the flavor.

Plus, the super quick cook time the air fryer allows means your chicken won't dry out, which is something a marinade helps with. A marinade typically needs to contain a fat, acid, salt, and flavor.

We typically reserve brines for larger birds, such as a whole chicken or turkey. For a more golden crust you can spritz with a little cooking spray, but we don't think it's absolutely necessary.
