Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Bites


This recipe is great for the Superbowl or just as a way to change up the way you top your salad! I made these in the air fryer but if you don’t have one, you can also bake them in the oven. If you’re using the oven, I love this crisper tray because it allows for better air flow which means your chicken bites will turn out more crispy than in a normal pan!
