Get ready to plan your menu with the air fryer and these 30 Air Fryer Chicken Recipes!
We all know by now how much I love my air fryer, right? I thought this week I would round up a huge list of air fryer chicken recipes.
I know for most of us we will have chicken on hand but be a little stumped as to how we should prepare it, this huge list of air fryer chicken recipes will give you all the ideas you need to make a delicious easy air fried dinner!
Making air fried chicken is one of the easiest and tastiest ways to prepare chicken without the oil and grease too.
Is Air Fried Chicken Healthy?
This will be solely dependent on how you prepare it. It’s certainly a better option than deep frying because air frying is eliminating almost all of the oil. In saying that though, if you air fried the chicken and then dip it in loads of ranch dip…that makes it not so healthy. See what I mean?
So, in theory, yes, air fried chicken is healthy but it also depends on how you prepare and serve it.
How long do you cook chicken in the air fryer?
This will depend on the recipe that you are making; however, the chicken should always be cooked until it’s at least 165*F to be well done.
I always recommend having a great digital meat thermometer on hand to easily check the meat, because it’s also important not to overcook the chicken. This ThermoPro Digital Meat Thermometer is my personal favorite and the one I use regularly.

Can you line the air fryer with aluminum foil when cooking air fryer chicken?
Yes! I do this a lot because it’s just easier cleanup and in my air fryer sometimes the chicken sticks to the basket. If you do line the air fryer with aluminum foil, be sure to leave some room for air to still circulate. I roll the foil up on the side of the basket so the air can still get through.
I also find with any recipe it’s best to spray the foil or the basket with non-stick cooking spray.
Now that we have those questions out of the way, it’s time to try out some of these easy air fryer chicken recipes.
Which one do you plan to try first? I have to say I have several on my list! Each of these fabulous foodies allowed me to share their delicious recipes with you.
