  • Air fryer
  • 2 small bowls



  • Slice the chicken breast into 1-2 inch cubes.
  • Add the buttermilk and egg to a small bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • Add the flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper to a shallow bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • Dip the chicken pieces in the buttermilk and egg mixture. Make sure they're completely covered. Tap off any excess.
  • Then, place the chicken pieces in the flour mixture, flipping to coat. Tap off any excess flour.
  • Spray the bottom of your air fryer basket with spray oil. Place the chicken pieces in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Spray the top of the chicken with the spray oil.
  • Air fry the chicken at 400F for 12-14 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165F. Spray the chicken as needed with spray oil to get rid of any floury bits.
  • Remove from the air fryer and place the chicken in a bowl. Toss with buffalo sauce just before serving. Serve with additional dipping sauce like ranch or blue cheese, and fresh celery and carrots.



  • I like to use chicken breast for this recipe, but you could use chicken tenderloins which are already cut thinner or even chicken thighs if you like dark meat. 
  • I used Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Baking Flour in this recipe. You could also use all-purpose flour if you are not gluten-free. 
  • Depending on the size of your chicken, you may need to cook it more or less than the recipe states. Make sure your chicken reaches an inner temperature of 165°F/74°C. 
  • Instead of buffalo sauce, you could use BBQ sauce, honey mustard, teriyaki sauce, or a honey sauce to change up your wing flavors. 
  • I like to serve my buffalo chicken wings with ranch dip to cut the heat and some fresh celery and carrots.
  • 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.
  • Pro Tip: Check your food as it cooks. Each air fryer runs a bit differently. Sometimes air frying is a trial and error process. Check your food as it cooks to learn your air fryer better!  When cooking a new recipe or food items be sure to check your food often to help avoid over/under cooking.
