Air Fryer Chicken Cook Times
The first thing I ever cooked in the air fryer was chicken and along with air fryer potatoes, it must be our most cooked food in the air fryer.
In the Milner house we will often cook chicken and potatoes for dinner and normally one chicken in one air fryer and potatoes in the other, making it ideal for feeding a family of five on a busy weeknight.
But how often do you have a plan for cooking chicken for dinner and just want to quickly know the cook times and then get dinner on the table?
Because I have been cooking chicken for such a long, long time in the air fryer, many of the cook times I know in my head. I know how long to air fry a whole chicken or how long to cook some marinated chicken thighs.
But long before I did it from memory, I had a printable that I kept next to my air fryer that I could just reference as I put dinner on. It listed my favourite air fryer foods and was so useful to me.
It made me think, that if I was a beginner to the air fryer and wanted to cook chicken, that I would love some printables that I could keep in the kitchen for my favourite air fryer foods.
The printable I wanted to share with you today is just for air fryer chicken and you can download it for FREE below.

Air Fryer Chicken Tips
The first thing we ever cooked in our air fryer back in 2011 was air fryer frozen chicken strips, but we soon became obsessed with lots of different ways to cook chicken in the air fryer.
Looking back, I think what advice I would give myself now about chicken in the air fryer, after all those years would be:
- Get a spray bottle – When you are breading chicken to cook in the air fryer or cooking breaded chicken from frozen you want that crispy coating. By adding a little extra virgin olive oil spray, a couple of minutes from the end of the cook time can make a HUGE difference.
- Two different cook times – I do this a lot with very thick chicken breasts. You start off low to help the middle of the chicken cook and then go higher to make sure the outside is crispy and that you have an even cook.
- Don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket – Don’t add chicken on top of each other. It will stick together, and you will not have an even cook on your chicken.
- Add a baking mat – My best recommendation for a DIY air fryer accessory is a silicone baking mat. They are ridiculously cheap, and you can buy two for less than $8. But best of all they do a much better job than parchment paper and wipe clean after use. The only problem is they are not designed with air fryers is mind, so we always cut them to the size of the air fryer.
