For BBQ sauce:

I like to make my own BBQ sauce. Because it takes only minutes and you can use grocery store essentials like ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and spices. But feel free to use your favorite commercial barbecue sauce instead.

  • tomato ketchup.
  • Worcestershire sauce.
  • apple cider vinegar / balsamic vinegar.
  • Honey. Brown sugar can also be substituted.
  • salt and black pepper.

For non-fryer barbecue chicken

  • chicken breast. I used skinless, boneless chicken breast. Bone-in chicken such as thighs and chicken thighs can also be used, but will take longer to cook.
  • smoked paprika.
  • garlic powder.
  • Onion powder.
  • cayenne pepper.
  • salt and black pepper.

How to make Air Fryer BBQ Chicken

Place the chicken on a cutting board, cover with parchment paper, and flatten with a rolling pin or meat mallet. Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Sprinkle the seasonings on both sides of the chicken. Place the chicken in the air fryer basket. Mix all the BBQ sauce ingredients in a small bowl and brush liberally over the chicken. Place chicken in air fryer, flip halfway through, cover with remaining sauce and cook for 8 minutes. Air fry until caramelized and cooked through, remove from air fryer and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Can I make this first?

Chicken can be seasoned the day before cooking and stored in the refrigerator. Barbecue sauce can be made and stored in a jar in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
