  • Yield: 4 Servings

  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 ounces pork rinds, finely ground
How to Make It
  1. Slice each chicken breast in half lengthwise. Place the chicken into a large bowl and coat with hot sauce.
  2. In a small bowl, mix chili powder, cumin, onion powder, and pepper. Sprinkle over chicken.
  3. Place the ground pork rinds into a large bowl and dip each piece of chicken into the bowl, coating as much as possible. Place chicken into the air fryer basket.
  4. Adjust the temperature to 350°F and set the timer for 25 minutes.
  5. Halfway through the cooking time, carefully flip the chicken.
  6. When done, internal temperature will be at least 165°F and pork rind coating will be dark golden brown. Serve warm.
