What is the best chicken wing marinade for air fryer?

Marinating chicken is the key to flavor and this easy-to-whip-up Greek yogurt marinade is not only super flavorful, it’s also a great way to make the chicken extra tender and juicy! The acid from the yogurt tenderizes the chicken gently and slowly and the fat helps it retain its moisture and soak up all the delicious flavor.

Can I cook raw and frozen chicken wings in the air fryer?

Yes! If you forgot to thaw your chicken wings, you can still make this recipe!

Place frozen wings in the air fryer basket. Set temperature to 400°F, air fry for 10 mins. With a pair of kitchen tongs, transfer wings to a bowl and drain the liquid from the air fryer basket.

Now toss with the marinade to coat, then place wings back in the air fryer. Cook for another 15 mins or until internal temperature is 165°F. Check with the thickest wing for doneness.

Air Fryer wings are best enjoyed fresh, but you store leftover wings an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat the wings, simply place them in the preheated air fryer and air fry at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 2 minutes, or until heated through.

FAQ

How long does chicken breast take in and air fryer?

The best way of checking is with a meat thermometer. Otherwise, remove a piece from the fryer and pierce or cut it into the thickest part. The meat should be completely white, but still juicy.
If the pieces of meat you have are of irregular size, think about removing the smaller pieces sooner.

What should I serve Air Fried chicken with?

Veggies, salad, potatoes, rice, pasta, the options are endless! I served mine with brussels sprouts, which you can add to the air fryer once you flip the chicken and cook for another 5-7 minutes.

Can you cook frozen chicken breast in the air fryer?

Yes, you can cook frozen chicken breast in air fryer. Although thawing it gives it better flavor and definitely keeps it juicy, but you can cook it directly from frozen. Cooking time will be closer to 18-20 minutes, flipping half way through.

Can you air fry other cuts of chicken?

Yes, you can air fry any cut of chicken. The cooking time will vary depending on cut. I have specific recipes for Air Fryer Chicken Cutlets, and Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Tenders that you can use.

    • Sweet chili sauce
    • Or just spritz with lemon juice right before serving.

    Possible Variations and Tips:

    • If you don’t own an air fryer, you could bake these breaded chicken tenders. Bake in preheated oven at 425 F until chicken is cooked through, about 15 to 20 minutes, turning half way through.
    • If your grocery store doesn’t sell chicken tenders, you can make your own from a boneless skinless chicken breast, by slicing it lengthwise into strips (about a 1/2-inch thick).
    • For more intense garlic flour use 1 tablespoon minced garlic (add to the panko breadcrumbs) rather than using garlic powder.
    • Use an instant read thermometer to test for doneness in center of the chicken. Temperature should read 165 degrees, don’t cook over or they’ll start to dry.
    • If some chicken tenders are smaller you may want to check those first and remove early.

    ingredients for salmon

    HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER SALMON:

    1. Rub: Each salmon fillet with olive oil. In a small bowl mix salt, black pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. Rub into the Salmon over the olive oil.
    2. Bake: Preheat air fryer to 400 F. Place salmon fillets skin side down in the air fryer basket. Bake 10 min. If you are adding asparagus add it after the first 5 min.
    3. Eat: Remove from the air fryer and enjoy!
    Salmon seasoned with garlic powder and paprika.

    WHAT DO YOU SERVE WITH SALMON:

    There’s not much that doesn’t go with salmon. Here are a few suggestions:

    Air-Fried Asparagus, Caprese Asparagus Salad, Asparagus Salad with Lemon Dressing, Sautéed Kale and Chickpeas, Green Bean and Beet Salad, Air-Fried French Fries, Lebanese Fattoush Salad or Lemon Tahini Sauce.

    TIPS FOR MAKING SALMON IN THE AIR FRYER

    • Choosing your Salmon: Both fresh and frozen salmon works for this recipe. Salmon should be clean brightly colored and free from soft spots or discolorations.
    • Dry: To help the seasonings stick to the salmon pat it dry with paper towels. Also press the seasonings into the salmon so it stays on the salmon.
    • Done: Check the salmon early to make sure you don’t over cook it. You do not want to over cook salmon, depending on the thickness of the salmon, it will take between 8-10 minutes in the air fryer. Alternatively, you can use a meat thermometer to check the thickest part of the salmon. The internal temp should be 145 F. Remove from the air fryer immediately, it will continue to cook if left in the basket.
    • Serve: With Air Fryer Asparagus and you’ll have a fantastic dish for lunch or dinner. The fresh lemons make it extra great so make sure to squeeze fresh lemon juice on top!

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    How Long to Cook Salmon in Air Fryer:

    8 to 10 minutes at 400 F, depending upon their thickness and your air fryer model (fillets around 1 inch will need 8 to 10 minutes). Do not overcook or the salmon will be dry. Salmon is done when it registers 145 degrees F on an instant thermometer.

    How do you Know when Salmon is Done Cooking?

    It doesn’t take much work to figure out when Air-Fried salmon is done cooking, but there are a few things to look for if you’re unsure and if you’re done using an instant thermometer.

    • Raw salmon is a translucent orange-pink hue, and it turns to an opaque light pink color when cooked.
    • When cooked, salmon fillets should be mostly opaque with a small amount of translucent flesh still remaining.
    • Flake test: You should also be able to stick a fork or knife into the middle and see the salmon start to flake away.

    How to Cook Frozen Salmon in Air Fryer:

    If you forget to take your salmon fillets out of the freezer, no worries, you can still make this recipe.

    • Simply preheat your air fryer to 400 F and place the salmon fillets, skin side down, in the basket of the air fir fryer. Cook for 4 minutes.
    • Remove the air fryer basket and gently drizzle with olive oil, then rub the fillets with the seasoning mix.
    • Now cook the recipe as normal and you’ll have a delicious salmon dinner.

    How to Store Cooked Air Fry Salmon:

    Place in an airtight container or wrap tightly in aluminum foil and store it in the fridge. It will keep for about 3-4 days.

    SHOULD I LEAVE THE SKIN ON SALMON?

    YES! It is so much easier to remove and discard the salmon skin after its been cooked. Plus, the skin creates a nice barrier between the pan or air fryer basket and the salmon flesh allows for a more moist, flaky fillet.

    WHAT AIR FRYER IS THE BEST?

    I’ve only used and tested my Cosori air fryer, which I love and I think it’s the perfect size for my family of five and it is super easy to clean!

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    What type of fish is tilapia?

    It’s a white fish that is farm raised. It does have a neutral taste, so for flavor, just add your favorite seasonings.

    How do I Know When Tilapia is Done Cooking?

    The key to perfectly cooked air fried tilapia is getting the texture just right. When your fish is done, it should flake easily with a fork. If the fillets aren’t flaking, cook them another minute or two and check again. My two fillets were done cooking at exactly 10 minutes.

    How Long to Cook Tilapia in Air Fryer?

    10 minutes, flipping the fillets halfway through at 400 F!

    What is the Best Air Fryer?

    Air Fryer Chicken Cutlets

    Crispy, golden, delicious Air Fryer Chicken Cutlets is my favorite way to make breaded chicken without all the oil! Air fryer breaded chicken will become your new favorite way to prepare chicken. It requires minimal prep and less than 20 minutes to cook. Serve these air fryer chicken cutlets on their own, in hamburger rolls or over a salad!

    Chicken Cutlets in Air Fryer:

    These Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Cutlets are so crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Easy to make and perfectly air fried crispy chicken that the whole family can enjoy!

    What is a Chicken Cutlet?

    A chicken cutlet is basically a thin piece of a chicken breast, which usually come pre-sliced thin at your local grocery store.  Chicken cutlets can be easily prepared at home from a whole boneless, skinless chicken breast. Slice each whole chicken breast horizontally from the thick end to the thin end into two equal pieces. Then you simply pound them with a mallet to an even 1/4-inch thickness.  Chicken breast cutlets cook quick and evenly, that’s why they are perfect for air frying!

    Quick Chicken Hack: If slicing your own cutlets, it’s helpful to freeze the chicken breasts for 20-30 minutes before cutting. I find it easier to slice through a slightly frozen piece of chicken or meat. 

    breaded chicken air fryer

    Air Fryer Chicken Cutlets Ingredients:

    There is nothing like a good piece of tender chicken, coated in a flavorful, crunchy outer coating. Welcome air fried breaded chicken! Here is what you’ll need: 

    Chicken breast cutlets

    Panko breadcrumbs

    All purpose flour

    Egg

    Garlic powder

    Black pepper

    Salt

    Cooking spray

    Tips for Making Breaded Chicken in an Air Fryer:

    • Pre heat your air fryer before adding the breaded chicken, for about 3 minutes. 
    • Don’t overcrowd the basket. Avoid the temptation of jamming a bunch of chicken pieces into the air fryer basket, this will lead to unevenly cooked cutlets. 
    • Flip the cutlets halfway through. To ensure they are crispy on both sides. 
    • Generously spray the chicken cutlets with cooking spray, once you place it in the air fryer and once you turn it halfway too. 
    • Don’t overcook your chicken breast: These cutlets cook really quick, overcooking can make them dry. I recommend you check around 7 minutes.

    How to Make Breaded Chicken Cutlets in Air Fryer:

    (Full recipe with quantities in recipe card below)

    • Dredge chicken cutlets in flour, beaten egg, then the breadcrumb mixture. 
    • Preheat the air fryer to 390°F and generously Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. 
    • In batches transfer chicken cutlets to the air fryer basket. Spray the top of the chicken with cooking spray as well.
    • Cook for 4-5 minutes on one side then turn it, spray with cooking spray again and cook for another 4-5 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Cook time will vary depending on the size and thickness of your chicken breasts. (Mine took 9 minutes).
    • Serve and Enjoy!  

    How to Bake Thin Chicken Breast:

    If you don’t own an air fryer, you can bake these chicken cutlets instead. Preheat your oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and generously grease it with cooking spray. Place the chicken onto the prepared baking sheet and spray with cooking oil on top as well. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, then flip the chicken cutlets and bake for 5-8 minutes more, or until golden and cooked through.

    What to serve with breaded air fryer chicken cutlet breast:

    Air fryer chicken breast can be served alongside some roasted veggies to keep it as healthy as possible. They will taste great with some roasted potatoes, over a salad, or with hummus or baba ganoush.

    How to store crispy air fryer chicken:

    These crispy chicken cutlets are best enjoyed fresh. But you can store it in the fridge for 3-5 days. Allow the cutlets to cool off completely on a cooling rack before placing it in an airtight container and storing it in the fridge. To Freeze, place in an airtight container for up to 1 month. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

    These Air-Fried Falafel balls are a lightened up version of the traditional Lebanese falafel that is deep fried! Instead of deep frying them in oil, I bake them in the Air Fryer where they crisp up to golden brown perfection. This Air Fryer was best addition to my kitchen! 

     What is Falafel?

    Falafel is popular Middle Eastern street food, made with deep-fried ground chickpea balls or patties. Falafel is commonly served in a pita pocket or wrapped in a flatbread, topped with some herbs, veggies and tahini sauce. Falafel is also vegan and gluten free . A Wonderful healthy recipe for an easy meatless family meal everyone will enjoy!

    • Soak the chickpeas. Plan ahead and soak dry chickpeas in water overnight or up to 24 hours to soften them. 
    • Process. Using a food processor, pulse soaked chickpeas with onion, parsley, garlic, corn starch and spices. Keep pulsing until a coarse texture forms. If you forgot to soak them overnight, no problem. Bring a pot of water to boil, remover from heat, add the chickpeas and soak for 1 hour covered. 
    • Make the falafel mixture. Using a food processor, add the soaked chickpeas, parsley, onion, garlic, salt, spices and corn starch and process until everything is blended together. 
    • Chill. Let the falafel mixture rest for an hour in the fridge to allow it to firm up; making it easier to form the falafel balls.  Speed things up, and stick it in the freezer for 20 minutes instead. 
    • Form the falafel. I use my hands to form the falafel it into a golf ball shape, but you can use a small cookie scoop or get fancy and use a falafel scoop to get the authentic falafel disk shape, if you’d like.
    • Air Fry. Fifteen minutes in the air fryer and you’ll have perfectly crispy, golden-brown falafels ready to eat.

    Baked Falafel Option:

    If you don’t own and air fryer, then you should get yourself one now! 🙂 You can also bake the falafel balls at 400F. Place the falafel balls on the greased baking sheet. Drizzle generously with olive oil, and bake for 30 minutes. Flipping half way though until golden brown and crisp on the outside. Try not to overbake them, as they tend to dry out. 

    Tips for Making the Best Air-Fried Falafel Recipe:

    1. Used dried, NOT canned chickpeas. The perfect cakey, crumbly texture comes from dried chickpeas that have been soaked, but not cooked, before being blended into patties. Make sure to soak dried chickpeas ahead of time to make this recipe. Substituting cooked, canned chickpeas does not work here – your falafel will turn out wet and mushy.
    2. If your falafel mixture is too crumbly when shaping the falafel balls. Stick it back in the fridge for another half an hour or until it hardens up. 
    3. If your falafel mixture is too wet. Add more corn starch. 
    4. Spray falafel balls generously with cooking oil before air frying. This will help get nicely crisp and golden brown falafel. Also spray again when when you flip them half way through cooking. 
    5. Don’t over crowd your air fryer basket. To help them cook evenly. 

    How to Serve Falafel:

    My favorite way of serving falafel is in a pita pocket or flatbread wrap, topped with veggies and tahini sauce. But you can also enjoy it on a salad, or with hummus on the side.

    How to Store Air-Fried Falafel:

    • Air-fried falafel can be stored in an airtight container in fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat in the air fryer at 350 F for about 15 minutes or until warmed through.
    • Uncooked falafel balls freeze so well, making meal prep super easy. After forming the falafel balls, arrange on a baking sheet or tray and stick it in the freezer for few hours until the falafel balls harden up. Then place in a freezer-safe container or bag. They will keep well for up to 3 months. Defrost overnight in the refrigerator before cooking. 

    How to Serve Falafel:

    My favorite way of serving falafel is in a pita pocket or flatbread wrap, topped with veggies, herbs such as tomatoes, and parsley and finished with a drizzle of tahini sauce. But you can also enjoy it on a salad, or with hummus on the side.

    Instructions

    Crispy Falafel in Air Fryer:

    1. Place chickpeas in a large bowl and cover with at least 2 inches water. Soak overnight. When the chickpeas are soaked, drain the water and pat them dry with a paper towel.
    2. Place the uncooked, soaked chickpeas and all the remaining ingredients into a food processor and pulse until the chickpeas are finely minced. The mixture will have a coarse texture.
    3. Rest this mixture at least an hour in the fridge to allow it to firm up. This step will make shaping the falafel balls much easier.
    4. Preheat air fryer to 380°F.
    5. Scoop two heaping tablespoons of the mixture, and using your hands or a cookie scoop shape the falafel mixture into a golf ball shaped ball.

    7. Repeat this process for the rest of the mixture.
    8. Serve the falafel balls in a pita pocket or flatbread wrap, topped with veggies and tahini sauce or add it to your favorite salad and enjoy!
