It hit me that I could make a new version of loaded tots… Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Loaded Tots to be exact!

My husband and I love getting loaded tater tots at our favorite restaurant.

As I was making some frozen chicken strips and tots for the kids one night (yeah, yeah, I know…we all have those lazy dinner nights, right?),

This is just enough to serve two, either as a snack or in this case it was our weekend lunch.

How to make Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Loaded Tots

About two cups of frozen tater tots and four chicken strips fit perfectly in the air fryer basket.

I set it to 390 degrees for 15 minutes.

No turning or flipping was involved.

And as you can see, they come out crispy and golden brown.

First put the tots in a basket lined with parchment paper, or just a bowl or plate will work too.

I happen to have a serving basket was trying make it fun and with that restaurant-y feel.

Then cut the chicken into pieces and coat with your favorite buffalo wing sauce.

I put half a cup of Frank’s Buffalo Wing Sauce in a container and rolled the chicken around to coat them evenly.

The chicken goes right on top of the tots.

Next a cup of shredded cheddar cheese goes over top.

And microwave this for about one minute.

To serve these Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Loaded Tots, drizzle some ranch dressing over top.

A sprinkle of green onions if you prefer as well.

We enjoyed these with a little more ranch dressing.

And also the remaining buffalo wing sauce that was already in the container from coating the chicken.
