Air Fryer Sriracha Honey BBQ Chicken Recipe

Have you jumped on the air fryer wagon yet?  They are so popular right now and it’s easy to see why.  While I was a little doubtful at first, I was amazed at how quick it could create a meal for my family.  But not only that.  It actually tasted GREAT!  Although, if I’m going to be completely honest, I’ll admit that this 4 Minute Air Fryer Sugar Donut Recipe is the family favorite.  Yes…. we all have a sweet tooth here!  But upwards and onwards!

What’s For Dinner

Do you ever get home and times ticking down to dinner?  And you just don’t know what to make!?  Well, I’ve been turning to my air fryer on those days.   I’m usually able to get a meal on the table quicker that way.  And bonus points that it’s usually healthier too since I didn’t have to fry anything in oil!

The very first recipe I ever tried in my air fryer just so happened to be Air Fryer Sriracha Honey BBQ Chicken Recipe.  I wanted to whip together a healthier version of Chicken Wings and Drummies.  So no deep frying, as I just turned to my air fryer for help!

Start by placing the chicken in your air fryer and starting a cycle.

Stop to turn the chicken after eight minutes.  (It was neat to see them already starting to cook as I didn’t think they would have been browning already!)

After another eight minute round, I added a bag of store bought fries.  Did you know that you can layer some things in your fryer!?  This is good to know if you’re hoping to get a few things ready at once.

Then, I ran three more cycles, flipping after each one to ensure everything was cooking evenly.

While those last cycles were going, I got my sauce ready.

Then, at this point, I pulled out the chicken and ran the fries on one more short (5 minute) cycle to keep them warm while I finished up the chicken.

Once everything was done, I served it up!

It was so easy!

I use my air fryer almost everyday, and I have yet to make chicken wings in them. I love sriracha, and this wing sauce sounds amazing. I will be pinning this recipe and trying it soon.
