When a craving for fried chicken strikes, you don’t have to sacrifice healthiness or flavor with this air-fried, Paleo dinner. If you’re not an air fryer convert yet, allow us to explain. This appliance circulates hot heat around the food, giving it a crisp exterior and perfectly cooked interior without the need for oil. We know; it sounds too good to be true! This particular fried chicken recipe is as simple as it gets, though you’re free to add whatever other seasonings your heart desires, whether that’s spices, herbs, or even hot sauce. The key though is the almond meal. It replaces the breadcrumbs and flour traditionally called for with fried chicken and adds a nutty, almost cornmeal-like flavor and consistency to the chicken.
