Air Fried Chicken

The air fryer cooks by circulating hot air around the food, so you can enjoy crispy, crunchy fried chicken without all the oil.

For the seasoning mixture:
1 tablespoon paprika
½ teaspoon white pepper
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon L&B Ancho Powder
1 tablespoon cumin
½ teaspoon onion powder

2 chicken thighs
2 chicken legs
1 cup all-purpose flour, divided

  1. Combine all seasoning ingredients in a small bowl. Tip: If you’re in a hurry, you can substitute L&B Signature Barbecue Seasoning.
  2. In a large bowl, season chicken with 2 tablespoons of the seasoning mixture. Reserve the rest of the seasoning for later use. It’s delicious on grilled chicken or steak!
