How To Make tasty kfc style fried chicken recipe

  • 1
    Merinade chicken pieces in buttermilk for 1 hour or overnight in fridge in a large ziplock baggie.
  • 2
    Pour flour into a large bowl, combine spices in a separate bowl, pour spices in with flour and stir well to combine all ingredients.
  • 3
    Take individual pieces of chicken out of marinade and turn over in flour and spice mixture to coat entire piece. Each side should be coated 7 times so rotate and dip each piece of chicken in the mixture a total of 14 times.
  • 4
    Place coated pieces of chicken in the air fryer basket with enough space around each piece of chicken so that air can get all around it.
  • 5
    Place air fryer at 360 degrees and cook for 18-22 minutes. Check after 9 minutes and flip the pieces, check again in 9 minutes and test internal temperature with a meat thermometer.
  • 6
    Make sure you reach 165 degrees in internal temperature with your meat thermometer. Smaller pieces may need to be taken out at 18 minutes, while larger pieces may need a few more minutes of cooking time. Let your thermometer be the judge. Using a 7 quart Air Fryer you can do about 4 large pieces of chicken at a time or 6 smaller pieces. Enjoy!
