Air Fryer Fried Chicken
Crispy, crunchy fried chicken is a breeze to make in the air fryer! A buttermilk and hot sauce marinade takes this fried chicken recipe to to the next level!
- 8-12 pieces bone-in chicken pieces
For the marinade:
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1.5 cups buttermilk
- 1/2 cup hot sauce
To marinade the chicken:
Whisk together the marinade ingredients in a large bowl,
Add the chicken pieces to the bowl and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour or overnight.
I like to lay down parchment paper or foil to help with clean up.
I also like to use spray oil (avocado oil) on the drumsticks. Give them a spray before you flip them over to help prevent sticking, and give the tops a spritz of oil to help brown.
You can always spritz any floury areas to make them brown.
Remember to use your meat thermometer to determine if your chicken is cooked. The internal temperature should be 165 degrees F before consuming.
- Pro Tip: This recipe can be made in the air fryer unit with a basket or the air fryer oven. If you are using the air fryer oven, use the middle rack and select the "Air Fry" function.
