Equipment

  • 1 Air Fryer

Ingredients
  

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper adjust to your spice preference
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs or flour
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce I LOVE Frank's Red Hot!
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • Blue Cheese dressing and celery sticks for serving

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for about 5 minutes.
  • In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  • In another shallow bowl, beat the eggs until well combined.
  • Dip each chicken breast into the flour mixture, making sure to coat both sides evenly. Shake off any excess flour.
  • Next, dip the chicken into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off.
  • In a separate bowl, place the panko breadcrumbs. Press each chicken breast into the breadcrumbs, ensuring they are fully coated on all sides.
  • Optional, Lightly spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  • Place the breaded chicken breasts in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook them in batches.
  • Air fry the chicken breasts at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through, or until they are golden brown and crispy. To ensure they are fully cooked, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature, which should reach 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).
  • While the chicken is cooking, prepare the buffalo sauce by combining the hot sauce and melted butter in a medium bowl. Adjust the ratio of hot sauce to butter according to your desired spice level.
  • Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the air fryer and let it cool for one minute then coat the chicken with the hot sauce and serve!
