Air Fryer Mayo Barbecue Chicken Recipe: Another Winner Chicken Dinner by Donna John
I'm slowing getting to know my air fryer. So far the popular kitchen appliance has turned great carrots, turnips, beef ribs, turkey thighs, tortilla chips, tacos, turkey thighs, pizza and more. I've also discovered how cooking with mayonnaise can add not only moistness to meats like chicken, but crispness to dishes like magic mayonnaise roasted potatoes.
My latest recipe that includes mayonnaise is this air fryer mayo barbecue chicken recipe. The chicken is coated in a creamy marinade made with mayonnaise, barbecue sauce, mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika and ground cumin. The chicken is then cooked in an air fryer until cooked to the bone, moist, tender and sticky on the outside. Delish.
