Introduction to Hot Chicken Bites

Hot Chicken Bites are a delicious and healthier alternative to traditional fried chicken. From preparing the chicken to serving suggestions, we’ve got you covered. So, let’s get started!

How to Prepare the Chicken for Air Frying

Before you start making your hot chicken bites, it’s important to properly prepare the chicken. Begin by washing the chicken thoroughly under running water and patting it dry with paper towels. Next, cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces, making sure they are all roughly the same size so that they cook evenly in the air fryer.

To add some extra flavor to your chicken bites, you can marinate them for a few hours before cooking. A simple marinade of hot sauce, and spices like paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper will give your chicken bites a delicious kick.

Once you’ve marinated the chicken, remove it from the marinade and let any excess liquid drip off. Then, coat the chicken in a mixture of flour, cornstarch, and more spices. This will help create a crispy outer layer when air frying.

By taking the time to properly prepare your chicken, you’ll ensure that your air fryer hot chicken bites turn out perfectly crunchy and spicy every time.

Steps to Make the Perfect Hot Chicken Bites in an Air Fryer

To make the perfect hot chicken bites in an air fryer, follow these simple steps:

1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F for about 5 minutes.
2. Cut boneless chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces and dip them into the egg mixture, making sure they are fully coated.
3. Next, chicken bites with kosher salt
4. Place the chicken pieces in the air fryer basket, making sure they are not touching each other.
5. Spray the chicken pieces with cooking spray to help them crisp up.
6. Air fry the chicken bites for 10-12 minutes, flipping them halfway through the cooking time.
7. Check the internal temperature of the chicken bites with a meat thermometer. They should reach 165°F before being considered safe to eat.
8. Once cooked, remove the chicken bites from the air fryer and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
