Air Fryer Bang Bang Chicken has a crispy and delicious texture with the most amazing sauce! So simple to make in less than 30 minutes.
Begin by prepping the chicken. In a shallow bowl, combine the almond flour, salt and crushed up chips.
In a separate bowl, whisk together lime juice and egg.
Take each chicken piece and dip into the egg mixture first, then dip into the flour/chip mixture. Place all chicken pieces in one layer in the air fryer (you may have to do in batches if you have a small air fryer).
Set the air fryer to 380 and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Flip over each chicken piece, and cook for another 6-8 minutes, or until nice and crispy.
While chicken is cooking, make the sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, chili garlic sauce, honey, and rice vinegar.
Once chicken is done place on a large plate and drizzle with sauce. You can also use as a dipping sauce.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees while you prepare the chicken. Lightly grease a large sheet pan. Place each chicken piece on the sheet pan and bake for 12 minutes, flip over the chicken, and bake another 10-12 minutes.
