Ingredients needed to make Peanut Butter Chicken – Air Fryer Peanut Butter Chicken

Boneless chicken breasts or thighs, creamy peanut butter, brown sugar, garlic powder, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, oil of choice, salt, lemon juice, and red crushed pepper.

Method –

First, chop the chicken to 2 to 3 inch cubes. Second, in a mixing bowl add in creamy peanut butter, brown sugar, garlic powder, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, oil of choice, salt, lemon juice, and red crushed pepper. Mix well. Third, add in the chicken and mix it well in the marinade. Let it coat well and let it sit in the marinade for 30 minutes to an hour covered. Additionally you can also marinate it overnight in the refrigerator.


Air Fry-

When you are ready to cook, grease your Air Fryer basket with the left over oil. Then, follow your air fryer directions for preheating to 350°F for 5 minutes. When it’s preheated, working in batches, place the chicken in a single layer or in a skewer.

Further, air fry for 18 minutes, at 360°F. When 8 minutes are remaining, flip the chicken gently with tongs and drizzle or brush some oil. Also, every air fryer is different so check after the 15-minute mark. You can increase or decrease the time as per your liking. I like to up the temperature to 380 for an additional 2 minutes after the 18 minute mark to char it slightly.

Finally, Using a  meat thermometer ensure that the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165ºF before serving.
