Drenched with Dijon, these Air Fried Honey Mustard Chicken pieces are perfectly seasoned and cooked until tender and juicy.
Can you put raw chicken in an air fryer?
Yes, you put raw frozen chicken in the air fryer! You won’t be able to brine it first or pound it to an even thickness (so the results are not as juicy) but if you forget to thaw your chicken, it’s a great option to have on hand.
Does the chicken need to be flipped in Airfryer?
To help food crisp, always turn, rotate or shake the contents in the air-fryer basket, just like flipping french fries, fish fillets, or chicken tenders halfway through cooking in a traditional oven.
