I love fried chicken but most of us know it’s not the healthiest, sadness! Soooo, when the whole air fryer craze came out, I tried cooking everything in it. One of my most favorite meals is this fried chicken, it’s skinless yet still has a crispy texture without the use of a lot of oil. The avocado/olive oil spray along with the seasonings gives it a great crunch. The trick is to ensure the chicken is patted dry before adding the oil and seasonings. It cooks fast in the air fryer and clean up is a breeze.
I served it for lunch over a salad but this recipe is only for the chicken. You can serve it any way you prefer, even in a sandwich 😋 It can be made spicy if you substitute the paprika for cayenne pepper. Either way, the chicken is very moist on the inside, crunchy outside and flavorful especially if you use the Trader Joe’s Umami Seasoning, it’s so yummy.
WHAT IS UMAMI SEASONING?
Trader Joe’s Umami seasoning is made from a delicious combination of kosher salt, dried porcini and white button mushrooms, dried onion, mustard seed, red and black pepper, and thyme. It’s described as it being the “fifth taste,” it’s savory and almost earthy. The flavor reminds me of a robust soup stock. It’s delicious.
I hope you try it and enjoy it.
