INSTRUCTIONS


  • Step 1

    In shallow bowl, combine buttermilk, hot sauce, and 1 tsp each salt and pepper; add chicken, turning to coat well. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to overnight.

  • Step 2

    In shallow bowl, whisk together flour, cumin, chili powder, oregano, garlic powder, and remaining salt and pepper.

  • Step 3

    Remove chicken from buttermilk mixture, reserving buttermilk mixture. Dredge chicken in flour mixture. Dip into buttermilk mixture; dredge again in flour mixture. Transfer to parchment paper–lined baking sheet; let stand for 10 minutes (this will help dry out and set the crust for crispy chicken).

  • Step 4

  • Step 5

    Air fry chicken at 375°F, turning once, for 15 to 20 minutes or until internal temperature in thickest part of chicken reaches 165°F (if more time is needed, cook at 3-minute intervals until chicken is cooked). Meanwhile, warm tortillas according to package directions.

  • Step 6

    Assemble fried chicken in warm tortillas with cabbage, cucumber, guacamole, salsa (if using), pickled jalapeños and cilantro.
