  • Author: Tatiana

  • Yield: 4 1x


These air fryer buffalo chicken bites are a healthier and easier alternative to your favorite buffalo chicken wings. Serve them with a blue cheese sauce and celery sticks.


  • 2 pounds (1 kilogram)  boneless  chicken breast, diced into 2" pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch or cornflour
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup Frank's RedHot
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter or ghee


  • Celery sticks
  • Blue cheese dressing


  • Mix the chicken and olive oil in a large bowl. Keep aside. It will help the coating to stick.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the cornstarch, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  • Add the mixture to the chicken and toss until evenly coated.
  • Preheat your air fryer. Spray the air basket with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange the chicken in a single layer and  air fry at 390°F |200°C for 9-10 minutes. After 6 minutes, open the air fryer and flip the chicken. Cook further for 3-4 minutes, depending on the size of  the chicken pieces.  Transfer to a plate. You might need to air fry the chicken in batches. 
  • Add the butter and Franks Red Hot sauce to the skillet and cook until the butter is melted. 
  • Add the cooked chicken  to the buffalo sauce and toss to coat. Cook further for 2-3 minutes or until the sauce slightly thickens. 
  • Serve immediately with blue cheese dressing and celery sticks.
  • Enjoy!
