Using an air fryer is such an easy way to make a fast, simple and absolutely delicious chicken dish. I’ve got a ton of brilliant recipes, some super healthy, some less so, and all of them are packed full of flavour. These are my best air fryer chicken recipes, as well as a few ideas of other ways to use leftover air fryer chicken too.
The air fryer cooks most food faster than the oven, and is ideal if you’re just wanting to cook up some chicken for a tasty lunch, or perhaps to accompany some leftovers for a super simple dinner. We love to cook up a batch of chicken and enjoy it as part of a caesar salad or with cold picky bits from the supermarket.
Chicken fajitas is a real family classic. What I love about this air fryer chicken fajitas recipe is you can cook everything in the one air fryer and if you've got fussy eaters it is very simple to just remove the vegetables at the end thanks to their larger size. I love to make Ninja Foodi chicken fajitas too.
We love to have a roast dinner, but sometimes I'm deciding to cook one a little last minute. I love that this recipe allows me to serve up dinner in just 1 hour, while still being packed full of flavour too.
When you're wanting a takeaway style meal, but want to make it a little lighter, you'll love this breaded chicken breast. It takes just seconds to prepare and you can even make it in advance and freeze if you're organised.
When we want a takeaway, but want to keep it low cost or make it fast, these frozen chicken burgers are absolutely delicious. Use your favourite cheese and sauce toppings and you'll be able to enjoy this in under 20 minutes.
My little daughters absolutely love chicken nuggets and the frozen ones crisp up wonderfully in the air fryer. It takes just 12 minutes to cook these, from frozen, so this recipe is perfect for those midweek dinners when you're low on time, low on motivation, or both!
I love to cook a chicken and mushroom Pukka pie in my air fryer. It's a great way to recreate a takeaway style meal at home, particularly if you're on a bit of a budget.
I hope you’ve loved these air fryer chicken recipes – they’re some of my absolutely favourite. Hopefully this has inspired you to try out some of these healthy recipes for yourself.
Air frying gives me brilliant results with chicken that is juicy, crispy and cooked to perfection. I love to use the temperature probe on my OL750UK to ensure that it is cooked to a safe internal temperature before serving.
