Crispy Goodness: How to Recreate KFC-Inspired Air Fryer Chicken at Home

Getting the coating to stick to your chicken pieces is the key. The first step is to get the meat nice and dry by blotting it with paper towels before coating it. Then you need to carefully coat the chicken in egg and flour. Make sure you shake off any excess flour after each dredge to prevent the extra dryness that would cause the breading to fall off before cooking.

Finally, spray your dredged chicken with cooking oil and place it in an air fryer set at 180C/350F. Cook for about 20 minutes, flip, and spray again. Repeat if necessary until your chicken is cooked through and the breading is crispy and golden.
