My Go To Air Fryer Meals

March 25, 2020
Admittedly one of the silver linings to being hunkered down is all the cooking at home we've been doing. The air fryer has been getting quite the workout these last two weeks and I've been experimenting with all the meals we're eating. I wanted to share some of my go to favorites and a couple that I hope to try soon. I purchased this cook book and loosely follow the recipes. Also, sorry for the poor quality photos - I took them from my stories, so they aren't the best quality. 
Making fish in the air fryer is probably the best I've ever had, especially salmon. That's actually my favorite thing to make. I season it either according to the Skinny taste book or with whatever sounds good. 
I tried to make my own fries, but honestly the easiest is taking frozen fries of any kind for the crispiest fries, which are my favorite. I set the air fryer to 375 and pop them in for 16 minutes. Perfectly crispy every time.
Air fryer chicken from Mix & Match Mama was a huge hit in our house. I tend to overcook chicken, but using this recipe it comes out perfectly and not overdone! I'm a huge stickler about overcooking meat / chicken, so when the 22 minutes were up and the chicken was done I was shocked that it was cooked just right.  
This entire meal was made in the air fryer!
A lot of frozen items at Trader Joe's are great in the air fryer. Some favorites are the turkey meatballs, teriyaki cauliflower and frozen sweet potatoes. Really any vegetables are prepped so nicely in the air fryer. Frozen shrimp, yep you read that right - frozen, right into the air fryer, sprayed with a little cooking spray and pop them in for 15 minutes at 330 degrees!

Here's a few that I am excited to try

Do you have an air fryer? What's your go to recipe?

  3. Welp you've definitely sold me on the air fryer! I have been deciding between that and an Instant Pot but I think the air fryer sounds better for the types of meals we enjoy!!

  10. I exclusively cook brussells in the air fryer now, perfection! I will have to try the chicken in there. I am one who definitely overcooks chicken on purpose. I am more lose with beef.

  11. I don't have an air fryer but these look yummy! :) We eat at home a lot but we are trying to get takeout now and then to support the places near us - even if we can't eat there we can still order something to have at home!

    Hope that your week is going well :) I'm continuing to work from home this week.

  15. I do *not* have an air fryer yet, but you've just convinced me I need one! I was telling my husband last night that, if there's one thing I'm grateful for in all of this, it's forcing me to step out of my comfort zone in terms of recipes and try new things!
