Spicy Air-Fryer Chicken Breasts


  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 8 bone-in chicken breast halves, skin removed (8 ounces each)
  • 2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes


  • 1. Preheat air fryer to 375°. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Add chicken and turn to coat. Refrigerate, covered, 1 hour or overnight.
  • 2. Drain chicken, discarding marinade. Combine remaining ingredients in a shallow dish and stir to combine. Add chicken, one piece at a time, and turn to coat. Place in air fryer basket sprayed with cooking spray in a single layer. Air fry until a thermometer reads 170°, turning halfway, about 20 minutes. Repeat with remaining chicken. When the last batch of chicken is cooked, return all chicken to basket and air fry 2-3 minutes longer to heat through.

    Chicken was tender and tasty. We don't like a lot of breading, so I left out the bread crumbs and only used the cornmeal to make it crisp. I did cook it at 370 instead of 375 as I used boneless chicken breasts cut into tenders.
