The sauce adds a great flavor to the chicken, along with the rub. My kids love it because it reminds them of chicken orange chicken, but better, because they can have it at home. This chicken is moist, flavorful and has a great texture as well. My entire family ate it, and it can be made ahead of time, just cover it with aluminum foil and keep it in the refrigerator, until ready to eat.
I purchased our air fryer last April, and then I purchased another air fryer in December, and yet, I just ordered another one this week. It has quickly become one of our favorite kitchen appliances, and it replaced my oven. The other day, I was dusting my oven, and I was thinking, when was the last time, I used this?
The air fryer is nice and light and with very little oil, you too can get healthy, crisped dinners (chicken, etc). And, it saves you a ton of time, because it doesn’t require you to wait for the oven to preheat, and the dishes quickly cook, compared to the oven.
- Seasoning your chicken is important.
- Most chicken dishes can be rubbed and then set into the refrigerator ahead of time. So, when you come home from work/errands/kids, etc., you can just place it in the air fryer, spray it with olive oil spray and air fryer.
- Spraying the chicken with olive oil spray is one of the keys. I spray the heck of out of, and I always get no white spots and tender (way juicy) chicken.
Always flip the chicken halfway, and then spray again. This way both sides are nice, light and tender.
- Because eating uncooked chicken is unhealthy and can you sick, invest in a meat thermometer.
- This is one of the tastiest and easiest chicken dishes to make in the air fryer, it’s low in sugar, Gluten Free, part of the KETO diet, and sugar-free. It’s a must do recipe.

Air Fryer-Air Fried-Easy Kentucky Kernel Fried Chicken
- 2-3 boneless chicken breasts
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 package Kentucky Kernel Seasoned Flour
Start by cleaning your chicken breasts, by removing the white (fat) part of the chicken.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large bowl, large enough to fit your chicken breasts in, so you can soak them.
After you soak the chicken breasts, (shake them to get the excess butter off) place the covered chicken breasts in a Ziploc bag filled with Kentucky Kernel Seasoned Flour.
As you coat them, add them to your air fryer basket.
If you do not want white spots (a common question in our air fryer group), spray with olive oil sprayer, completely, until they are completely covered with olive oil.
Set your temperature to 370 degrees F.
Set the time for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, flip the chicken. (The exact cooking time will depend on how thick your chicken breasts are)
I had thick ones, so I flipped and added about 6 minutes.
Check the internal temperature of the chicken, which should be 165 degrees. F.
Once fully cooked, plate, serve and enjoy!
