Air Fryer Fried Chicken
Fried Chicken Recipe130 Mins
- 2 lb. bone-in skin-on chicken pieces (mix of cuts)
- 480g melted butter
- 115g hot sauce
- 3 tsp. kosher salt, divided
- 240g all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. onion powder
- 1/2 tsp. oregano
- 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
Trim chicken of excess fat and place in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, combine the melted butter, hot sauce, and 2 teaspoons salt.
Pour mixture over chicken, making sure all pieces are coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to overnight.
In a shallow bowl or pie dish, combine flour, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, and seasonings. Working with one at a time, remove chicken from the butter, shaking off excess butter. Place in flour mixture, turning to coat.
Place coated chicken in basket of air fryer, working in batches as necessary to not overcrowd the basket. Cook at 400° until chicken is golden and internal temperature reaches 165°, 20 to 25 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Repeat with remaining chicken.
