Instructions

  1. Season the chicken well with salt and pepper and then add it to a bowl with buttermilk. Chicken pieces should be covered with the buttermilk. Let it sit for at least an hour or up to overnight.

  2. To prepare the breading mixture, stir together flour, seasoned salt, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. Remove chicken pieces from buttermilk and shake off any excess; then dip in the flour mix and coat well. Transfer breaded chicken pieces to a clean plate or wire rack to rest.

  4. Spray the chicken pieces lightly with spray oil. Place the basket in the air fryer and turn the air fryer to 350 degrees F. Cook for 14 minutes, then flip the fried chicken with tongs, spray lightly with oil a second time on the bottom side of the chicken, and cook for another 10 to 12 minutes, until white meat reaches 165 degrees F and dark meat reaches 175 degrees F.

  5. When the fried chicken is ready, let it rest on a plate for a few minutes before serving. Serve immediately with salad, coleslaw, mashed potatoes, or your favorite fried chicken sides!
