Cajun-Style Air-Fried Chicken: Savor the bold flavors of Cajun cuisine with these irresistibly crispy Cajun-Style Air-Fried Chicken Strips. Tender strips of chicken breast are generously seasoned with a blend of smoked paprika, garlic, and aromatic herbs, creating a perfect harmony of spices. The air fryer transforms these strips into golden perfection—crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside.


For the Cajun Seasoning:

  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste for spice level)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For the Chicken Strips:

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning (plus extra for sprinkling)


For the Cajun Seasoning:

  • In a small bowl, combine smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, dried thyme, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create the Cajun seasoning.

For the Chicken Strips:

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a bowl, toss the chicken with olive oil, ensuring they are well coated.
  3. Sprinkle the Cajun seasoning over the chicken strips, tossing to coat them evenly with the spice mixture.
  4. Place the seasoned chicken in the EaZy MealZ Air fryer basket, ensuring they are not overcrowded for even cooking.
  5. Air fry for 12-15 minutes, flipping the strips halfway through, or until they are golden brown, crispy, and reach an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  6. Optional: Sprinkle additional Cajun seasoning over the chicken before serving for an extra kick.
  7. Remove from the EaZy MealZ Air fryer basket, let them rest for a few minutes, and serve hot.

Enjoy these Cajun-Style Air-Fried Chicken Strips as a delicious and zesty alternative! Adjust the seasoning to your liking and pair them with your favorite dipping sauce for an extra burst of flavor. You can serve over pasta, rice, pair along with vegetables!
