Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Pull-Apart Bread

How To Make Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Pull-Apart Bread
Spray your basket with olive oil spray, and preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F, air fryer setting. Use a sharp knife and make slices into the bread. Being careful not to cut through, I sliced the bread in both directions to get the typical diamond shape pattern seen in most recipes for stuffed bread.
Place the shredded mozzarella cheese and BBQ chicken into the slots, then top with the shredded Monterey Jack cheese.
Place the bread into the air fryer basket and set the time for 3-5 minutes at 400 degrees F. Remove once the cheese is melted. (note if you have an air fryer oven, place it on the lowest shelf)
What type of bread works best for this recipe?
My favorite type of bread is sourdough for this recipe, as it holds the shape and is readily available at the grocery store. My other favorite types of bread for this recipe are:
- Tuscan Bread
- Italian Pane
- Pain de Campagne Round Bread
- Rustic White Breads
- French Bread
If you are looking for something great that is quick, try these in mini rolls, they are amazing, make a quick and easy lunch, and are kid-friendly! This is a great idea for smaller air fryers as they will fit in any air fryer.
Tip: Make sure that your bread fits into the air fryer basket before creating it!
An Easy Way To Make Buffalo Shredded Chicken
If you do not have any shredded buffalo chicken readily available, here is a quick solution.
Grab a cooked (make sure it’s cooked) rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, bring it home and shred it, add some Franks’s Buffalo Sauce (to taste), then continue with the recipe.
Otherwise, the grocery store they do sell premade pulled pork in the meat department at most grocery stores and would make a quick and easy change.
Other Cheeses You Can Use
While I used both Monterrey Jack and Shredded Mozzarella cheese, you can substitute it for several other kinds of cheese. Here are some of my favorite cheeses, which you can easily switch out:
- Sharp Cheddar
- White Sharp Cheddar
- Mexican Cheese
- Vermont Sharp
