How to Cook Chicken in the Air Fryer

We have everything you need to know for how to cook chicken in your air fryer right here.

For all chicken, the basic way I cook it in the air fryer is to first preheat the air fryer to 400°F.


Then I mist the chicken with olive oil all over. I use this oil sprayer. Alternatively, you can drizzle with oil and then use your hands to rub it all over.


Next, season it liberally with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Finally, it goes directly into the basket of the air fryer to cook until it reaches 165°F internally.


I do usually flip the chicken over once halfway through. I prefer to start with the chicken or chicken pieces nicest-side-down.


Then after it’s flipped the nicer side is on top to finish browning.
