Air-Fried Popcorn Chicken Gizzards Recipe

Air-Fried Popcorn Chicken Gizzards


Use your air fryer to make this healthier take on fried chicken gizzards, seasoned with black pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.


  • 1 pound chicken gizzards
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons seasoned salt (such as LAWRY'S®)
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • cooking spray


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cut gizzards into bite-sized pieces and add to the boiling water. Boil for 30 minutes. Drain.
  2. Combine flour, seasoned salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne in a flat plastic container. Snap the lid on and shake until combined.
  3. Add gizzards to the seasoned flour. Snap the lid back on and shake until evenly coated.
  4. Place beaten egg in a separate bowl. Dip each gizzard piece into the beaten egg and then place back in the seasoned flour. Snap the lid on and shake one last time. Let sit for 5 minutes while the air fryer preheats.
  5. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  6. Place gizzards in the basket and spray the tops with cooking spray. Cook for 4 minutes. Shake the basket and spray any chalky spots with more cooking spray. Cook for 4 minutes more.
