Air Fryer Fried Chicken - Crispy, juicy, and deliciously fried chicken breasts cooked in the Air Fryer! Marinated in buttermilk and topped with pork panko crumbs, the whole family will love this delicious fried chicken.
Combine buttermilk and hot sauce in a large mixing bowl; place chicken breasts in the buttermilk mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour, and up to 24 hours.
Take chicken out of fridge and set on counter while preparing flour mixture.
In a shallow plate combine flour, breadcrumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, paprika, salt, and pepper.
Preheat Air Fryer to 390˚F.
Line Air Fryer basket with parchment paper (optional).
Remove chicken breasts from the buttermilk, allowing excess to drip off.
Dredge chicken in the flour mixture, shaking any excess off.
Place a single layer of chicken breasts in the basket, with space in between the pieces. I cook 2 to 3 chicken breasts at a time.
Spray with cooking spray and air fry for 10 minutes.
Open the air fryer basket and flip over the chicken pieces; spray with cooking spray, and continue to cook for 10 to 12 more minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and an instant read thermometer registers at 165˚F.
Repeat with the remaining chicken.
Let stand 5 minutes.
