How could this be adapted to an air fryer?

You'll need to do this recipe in two batches, if using the amounts called for.

Heat air fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter the rack. Put half the chicken on the rack, leaving room between the pieces. Drizzle a bit of melted butter on the top of each piece. Cook for 14 minutes. Flip the pieces over. Cook for 10 minutes and check with a meat thermometer. The breast meat should be 165 degrees. If it isn't cook 2-3 minutes more. The dark meat should be 175 degrees. It's fine if the dark meat goes a little higher.

Repeat with the second batch, brushing the rack with more butter (and scraping away any stray bits, if necessary) before putting the rest of the chicken on it.

Let us know, please, how it turns out! Thanks. ;o)

After seeing another Hotline question about burning air fryer chicken it occurred to me that I should add one caveat here: How long it will take to cook depends on the size of the pieces you're using. If your pieces are on the smaller side, flip after 9 - 10 minutes, and cook for another 2 -3 minutes before checking the temperature.

Also, air fryers make perform differently from one another, so mileage may vary. ;o)
