How To Prepare Air Fryer Crispy Fried Chicken

For those who enjoy having some crispy fried chicken and have an airfryer, this post will show you how you can prepare this.

As I have already said before air fryers will help you to prepare healthier meals as they use less oil.

If for some reason you you are not aware of the benefits of using an air fryer, I would urge you to visit my post entitled, Is an air fryer worth buying? This post will give you the advantages and disadvantages of buying an air fryer.

I personally have never regretted buying an air fryer. It has helped me to significantly cut the amount of cooking oil I was using.

I have also seen no big difference in the taste of the food.  I especially like the fact that I am now eating healthier food than before. And that matters more to me and my family more.


To prepare our yummy crispy fried chicken we need the following ingredients:

  • 2 chicken pieces
  • 250 g cornflakes
  • 32 g all purpose flour
  • 80 ml buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Three quarters tsp ground sage
  • One quarter tbsp cayenne pepper
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

How To Prepare

  • The first step is to preheat the hot air fryer to 200°C before you put in the ingredients.
  • Secondly you need to rinse the chicken in cold water and then dry it with whatever you use in your kitchen. In most kitchen they would pat it with a kitchen paper towel.

  • Then you put the dried chicken in a plate or something similar.

  • You can then season the flour with salt and the cayenne pepper.

  • After the seasoning above then you need to dip the chicken into the seasoned flour. In doing so for good results you need to make sure that that it is fully coated.

  • You can then tap against the bowl or plate to shake off any excess flour and set aside. Afterwards you can discard the unused flour.

  • This time you need to place the cornflakes into a big, resealable bag, making sure that there is no air in the bag before sealing, then run a rolling pin over the bag to crush.

  • After the crushing of the cornflakes pour the crushed cornflakes into a wide bowl or onto a plate.

  • Next you have to mix the buttermilk, mustard, cayenne pepper, paprika and sage in a bowl.

  • After the mixture is done dip the chicken pieces into the buttermilk mixture and then roll in the crushed cornflakes.

  • Arrange the chicken pieces in the air fryer's cooking basket, spray all over the pieces with oil and cook for approximately 5-10 minutes.

  • You then need to reduce the temperature to 190°C and cook for a further 15-20 minutes for thighs and 5-10 minutes for legs.

You will now have your yummy crispy fried chicken ready to be consumed. Enjoy!
