Air fryer tempura chicken recipe. Learn how to cook yummy Asian chicken tempura in an air fryer. So quick and easy! I used Homemade Hot Sauce, as well as Stone House Seasoning, to make this recipe.

Creating tempura chicken with an air fryer is both easy and delicious. Preparing the ingredients takes no time at all—simply mix the chicken with a pinch of salt, pepper, and paprika, and then dip it into the tempura batter. Place the tempura chicken in the air fryer basket and let the appliance do the rest. Within minutes, you will have crispy and crunchy tempura chicken that is golden brown and full of flavor. Serve it with a simple side of steamed vegetables and a dollop of mayonnaise to make it even more heavenly.

What are the benefits of cooking with an air fryer?

Air fryers are the newest trend in cooking. They are becoming popular because of their many benefits. The first benefit is that they don’t require oil to cook food. This means that they can be healthier and lower in calories than traditional frying. They also cook food more evenly, so it’s less likely that you will have some parts of your food overcooked while others are undercooked.

How does Tempura chicken compare to deep-fried chicken?

Tempura chicken is a Japanese dish that is made by coating a piece of raw chicken in wheat flour, and eggs and then frying the mixture. It is usually served with rice and vegetables.

Deep-fried chicken is a dish that has been deep-fried in oil until it turns crispy on the outside. It is usually served with fries or mashed potatoes.

Tempura chicken can be eaten without any sauce, but it tastes better when dipped in a soy sauce-based dipping sauce. Deep-fried chicken is a popular food in Japanese cuisine. Typically, “tempura” refers to battered or breaded pieces of seafood and vegetables that are deep-fried in oil. The crispy coating can be made from flour, corn starch, rice or potato starch, or variations of these ingredients. The food is usually dipped into a sauce made from soy sauce, mirin (Japanese rice wine), sugar, and vinegar.

Air Fryer Tempura Chicken Recipe

  • 1 cup (250 ml) buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 2 pounds (960 g) boneless and skinless chicken breasts, cut into pieces

  • 1½ teaspoons Stone House Seasoning


Step 1

In a medium bowl, combine the hot sauce and buttermilk. Whisk well.

Step 2

Add chicken breasts to the buttermilk mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat your air fryer to 370º F (185º C). Remove marinated chicken breasts from the refrigerator.

Step 5

Remove half of the chicken breasts from the buttermilk and dip them into a dry mixture. Turn them to coat well with the mixture.

Step 6

Grease the air fryer basket with nonstick spray. Arrange seasoned chicken in one layer in the basket, making sure they are not touching. Sprinkle the chicken with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 7

Cook in the preheated air fryer for 10 minutes. Using tongs, turn the chicken over and cook for a further 10 minutes.

Step 8

Once the first batch is done, prepare the second one. Repeat the steps for cooking. Enjoy!
