Place a parchment liner in the air fryer basket.
Remove a piece of chicken from the buttermilk mixture and place in the flour mixture, coating all sides of the chicken and shaking off any excess flour. Place the chicken pieces in the basket in a single layer.
Cook chicken at 200C for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the chicken and spray with olive oil. Return to the air fryer for a further 15 minutes.

Once cooked remove the chicken from the air fryer and allow to rest.
