Expert Tips

  • Air fryer temperature control settings vary according to brand and model. If your air fryer does not have the exact temperature setting called for in the recipe, consult your manual for suggested temperature settings.
  • Since air fryers use powerful fans to crisp foods, breading needs to be pressed onto food so it doesn’t blow off during cooking. Press bread crumbs firmly to adhere.
  • Pat chicken dry before coating in the flour.
