Welcome to my easy Airfryer KFC chicken strips recipe.

I am sure these KFC chicken strips were created for people like me. There are people out there that just hate chicken on the bone and just want to eat it all and not worry about the bones.

Here in Portugal there is always a lack of things to eat on the menu. You remember the adverts on the television and the branding online and then you go to your local KFC and then find out that all those things that look so yummy are just not available here.

It is all about demand. The different audience. The different set of local ingredients. Then as a result you always feel when you are in the fast food queue that you are hard done by.

We actually find it really funny because in the summer months Portugal is full of British & American tourists and they are always in the queue arguing as to why what they have at home is not available here.

My complaint is that you rarely get given a box when that has always been the main point about KFC or that the boneless buckets are not available. Or the fact that a box always includes the hot wings that I hate.

But one thing that you can always get on the menu is the super delicious chicken strips. They are like food heaven.

I can have them if I am a little hungry as a snack as I am going around the shopping centre or I can have them for supper knowing that you only get two small ones so the calories are not going to be that bad!

With my KFC chicken strips I have made them with coconut and they are full of flavour and a lot less calories than what you would find at a KFC.

They are also made in the Airfryer and are really crispy and incredibly addictive.

They are also perfect served on sticks as a fantastic party snack or for you to take to barbeques during this lovely summer season.

  • Chop up your chicken breast into strips.
  • In one bowl add your coconut, oats, KFC spice blend, bread crumbs and salt and pepper.
  • In another bowl have your egg and in another your plain flour.
  • Put your strips in the plain flour, then in the egg and finally in the spicy layer.
  • Place in the Airfryer at 180c and cook for 8 minutes and then cook for a further 4 minutes on 160c so that the chicken has plenty of time to cook in the centre.

When making your own crispy strips always use something that gives a really good crunch to your meal. My favourite is using either coconut or oats.

  1. This looks like a a tasty recipe but I can’t see how one chicken breast can feed 8 people. Is that figure correct? I would usually use a chicken breast for each person and if I did this would I need to quad-duplicate the quantity of each ingredient stated. Thank you

    • Hi Harry

      Thank you for your comment.

      We usually have a few extra foodie bits with the chicken and do not have the chicken strips as a full meal. We cut the chicken breast into thin strips as to cook quickly so it did stretch with a few bits of chicken for each person. But if you were wanting to make extra then yes you would need to quadruple the ingredients to match each chicken breast you would be covering and also the time to cook and prepare would need to be adjusted to allow for the extra amount.
