If you are looking for a delicious and quick chicken recipe in a air fryer, here you go one that you’ll become addicted to it. Who doesn’t love KFC fried chicken style, but also who are concerned by the caloric and oily mea that we want to avoid!?? Pull out your air fryer from the cabinet and and start using it and enjoy the most crispy chicken from the outside and buttery and juicy inside. I do this technique with chicken wings and drumsticks. But if you prefer the breast it’s possible too because the principle is the same, chicken, coating, air frying... enjoying

I learned that many people have an air fryer but they don’t use it! It’s really sad you know! I like fried food, my kids like it too but I’m always restraining myself to eat fries and try to use the oven instead. The problem with the oven it’s it never gives you this crispiness you are looking for. Also, if I put raw chicken in the oven it’s takes me an eternity to be done and it’s never fully done heh! With my air fryer I put raw chicken with my magical homemade mixture I spray some canola oil and good to go for 25 minutes and it’s ready just like the crispy chicken I like.

this recipe will takes you only 25 minutes.

let’s see how?

Coating the chicken with the mixture.

Spraying with oil sprayer and place in the air fryer.

flip the chicken and continue cooking.

Ready to serve.

    Coat the chicken with the dry mixture then spray with oil or spray with oil then coat with the dry mixture?

      Coat with the dry mixture and ther spray with oil. If you do the opposite the coat will not stick properly on the chicken skin.

    My air fryer has been sitting in my back room forever but I’m going to bring it out of retirement to try your recipe. Five stars for the seasonings and easiness to make which are big pluses with me. Thanks!
