Who’s ready for air fryer chicken recipes? It’s no surprise that chicken is the most frequently eaten meat in the United States. It’s delicious, a source of lean protein and very versatile!

That versatility means it’s easy to cook chicken several times per week and never get bored with it. That versatility also includes cooking it in an air fryer. In just a few minutes you can have a deliciously cooked dinner ready for the family.

By using warm air that circulates over your chicken, an air fryer can keep the interior nice and moist while creating a crispy exterior. Plus, you get those results without having to use a lot of added oil. That’s a big bonus!

How to Choose an Air Fryer:

If you haven’t yet purchased a hot air fryer, I recommend doing a bit of research as to which one to choose. There are differences as to the quantity you can cook at once, how much counter space is needed for the airfryer, control panel options and, of course, price.

One of the most highly rated air fryers is the Ninja Air Fryer. It holds up well when comparing the food it cooks to traditionally deep-fried foods and it has a 4-quart ceramic-coated basket.

I have personally used an Avalon Bay Air Fryer. While I liked the way it cooked the food, the handle on mine broke, making it hard to replace and remove the cooking basket. I can’t totally place the blame on the fryer as I may have helped contribute to it breaking – so I’m undecided on that point!

When you choose your air fryer, just think about the features and size you need, then read reviews on the model you’re considering before making your final purchase decision.
