We use our air fryer all the time! It’s one of our favorite small appliances in the kitchen. Now, I have to say, I mostly use the air fryer to make tator tots–lol. I know, I know, tots are NOT on my eating plan but sometimes I slide off the healthy eating wagon. Other times we use it for bacon, veggies and even chicken like this air fryer buttermilk fried chicken recipe.

SERVING SIZE: 4 OUNCES
CHICKEN PREP TIME: 12 MINUTES PLUS 15 MINUTES MARINATING TIME
COOK TIME: 14–17 MINUTES
AIR FRYER BUTTERMILK FRIED CHICKEN RECIPE INGREDIENTS
1⁄3 cup low-fat buttermilk
1⁄4 teaspoon hot sauce
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, all fat discarded, cut in half lengthwise
6 tablespoons cornflakes
3 tablespoons stone-ground cornmeal
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
1⁄4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
Nonstick cooking spray
AIR FRYER BUTTERMILK FRIED CHICKEN RECIPE DIRECTIONS
In a deep bowl, stir together the buttermilk and hot sauce. Place the chicken in the buttermilk mixture. Allow to stand 15 minutes.
Place the cornflakes into the work bowl of a food processor. Process until coarse crumbs form. Add the cornmeal, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper and pulse until evenly mixed. Pour the crumbs into a shallow bowl.
Drain the chicken, allowing the excess buttermilk to drip back into the bowl. Coat the chicken pieces evenly in the cornflake mixture. Place the coated chicken pieces on a wire rack.
Place the chicken in the air fryer basket. Spray with nonstick cooking spray for 2 seconds. Set the temperature to 375°F and air fry for 7 minutes. Turn the chicken pieces. Air fry for an additional 7–10 minutes or until the chicken is done and a meat thermometer inserted in the center registers 165°F.
