How To Air Fry a Buttermilk Chicken Burger

How To Air Fry a Buttermilk Chicken Burger

We make an Air Fried Buttermilk Chicken Sandwich with homemade burger sauce served on a brioche burger bun.

We’ve been pushing the air fryer to its limits and we were blown away but this one. Crispy, juicy fried chicken burger with all of the flavour and none of the guilt. 

This is one that we will be definitely enjoying time and time again that can definitely replace the cheeky fast food takeaway. You can also try this method to use chicken tenders.
