3chicken breasts, 6 - 8 ounces each, skinless and boneless
⅓cupbuffalo sauce*, I used New Primal, plus more for serving
Avocado or olive oil cooking spray
Make your own buffalo sauce:
⅓cupFrank's Red Hot Sauce
1Tbspmelted butter or ghee
Preheat air fryer to 380°F and lightly grease basket with cooking or avocado spray.
Meanwhile, pat chicken breasts dry with a paper towel and then place a shallow bowl.
Pour the buffalo sauce on top and use kitchen tongs to flip chicken breasts to ensure they are completely coated. Season with salt and pepper and let marinate for 5 to 10 minutes.
Once the air fryer is heated, evenly space out the chicken breast into the basket, breast side down (the smooth side).
Air fry for 10 minutes, then with kitchen tongs and cook for another 4 - 6 minutes. I used medium 7-ounce chicken breasts and cooked for a total of 15 minutes. They will be done once the internal temp reaches 165°F and the outside is crisp. DO NOT overcook, it will be dry.
Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes.
Drizzle with extra buffalo sauce and enjoy with a side of your favorite grain and vegetable.
