I’m not going to pull your leg and tell you that airfryerfriedchicken is exactly the same as cast iron or deep fried chicken. 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. There are some recipes that I don’t think adapt well to the air fryer, but fried chicken works really well.

For my money and taste buds, nothing beats buying a whole chicken and cutting it up yourself. 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.

For my airfryerchicken, I like to soak the chicken in buttermilk to give it that classic fried chicken tenderness. 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. Alternative Pan Fry Method: If you don’t have access to an air fryer, you can make this fried chicken using a traditional pan fry method.

2 cups all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon seasoned salt 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 tablespoon garlic powder 1 tablespoon paprika Spray olive oil for cooking 2 Bread the chicken : To prepare the breading mixture, stir together flour, seasoned salt, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.

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.
