Winner Winner Air Fryer Fried Chicken Dinner

I have always wanted to make Fried Chicken. I just have this thing about large pans of oil. Back in my restaurant days, I got an electric shock while cleaning out a fryolator. So the idea of a pot of oil in the kitchen of my house never made me feel comfortable. Until the Air Fryer arrived.

This is a no-brainer. This was delicious chicken. I used two bone-in the breast and 2 thighs. I cut the breast in 1/2 so the cooking time would be the same for all the chicken. I soaked the chicken pieces in a cup of buttermilk and 2 tbsp of hot sauce for about 7 hours in the fridge.

I mixed 2 cups of flour with salt, pepper, onion powder. Dredged the chicken in the flour and sprayed both sides of the chicken with cooking spray. This can get a bit messy. Need to work on how this is done...

Into the air fryer basket with the temp set at 390˚ for 15 minutes. Flip the chicken over, spraying any flour you see on the chicken with cooking spray and set the timer for another 10 minutes. The chicken will be ready when the internal temp is 165˚.

It is not KFC crispy but it was quite delicious.
