Chicken in the Air Fryer:

This is a simple recipe or cooking method that can be done rather quickly. 


Boneless chicken breast and/or thighs

High fat butter or lard or other liquid (oil if you diet allows)



Other seasonings


Using boneless breasts or thighs, they only need to be thawed enough to cut them into chunks, though they can be completely thawed.

Preheat the air fryer to 400 F or 204 C and set cook time for 8 Minutes

Cut the chicken into chunks between 1/2 to 1 inch each. I find I can cut the chicken while the air fryer preheats.

Coat them in a lubricant like melted butter or lard (oil may be used if your diet allows the use of oil, olive oil works nicely) The cold chicken may cause butter or fat to coat like a paste so warmer chicken is better than almost still frozen, but it will work even with semi-frozen chicken - it is just a bit sticky to handle.

Season chicken liberally with salt, pepper and any other seasoning your diet allows

Put chicken in cooking basket when air fryer is preheated. Shake basket at 2 minute intervals until the time is up

Chicken should be done in 8 minutes and ready to eat. If you like yours cooked further, just add time 1 minute at a time since the air fryer should already be hot and they can become overcooked rather quickly


This is a quick recipe that does not require much preparation or time. The chicken should be thawed enough to cut with a couple minutes in the microwave if it is frozen solid. The fat/oil will help the seasoning stick to the chicken chunks.
