Ingredients

Buffalo Sauce

  • 2 T. butter
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 T. lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Prepare the boneless bites by unwrapping your Omaha Steak Chicken Breasts and cutting your chicken breasts into bite sized pieces. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Scramble two eggs in a shallow bowl for your batter. In a separate bowl add the flour, chili pepper, cayenne, and paprika to a bowl. Stir together your dry ingredients.
  3. Dip the chicken pieces in the egg bath. Then, using your other hand, dip them into the seasoned flour mixture. Shake off any of the excess batter, and place them on your air fryer tray.
  4. Prior to placing your nuggets into the airfryer, spray them with an olive oil spray to help make your nuggets extra crispy on the outside.
  5. Preheat your air fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook your chicken nuggets for 15 minutes, or as directed by your air fryer. They will come out crispy with a juicy chicken center.

  6. While the boneless wings are in the air fryer, take a moment to prepare your buffalo sauce in a small saucepan.
  7. Melt your butter, add the hot sauce, additional seasoning, and lemon.
  8. Immediately toss your boneless wings in the sauce after removing them from the air fryer. The longer you wait, the less crispy your chicken batter will be.
  9. For best results lightly toss the chicken in the sauce with a spoon to avoid breaking up the crisp exterior.
  10. As with all things prepared with an air fryer, eat your dish fresh and hot. Serve your boneless buffalo bites with your favorite ranch or blue cheese dipping sauce. Don’t forget the celery!
