Easy Air Fryer Dinner Recipes
I'm not sure if I expected to "love" cooking with my air fryer as much as I do. At best I thought I would just use it for French fries or tater tots. I certainly never thought I'd love using it to make "fried" chicken!
Eliminating the need to "fry" food has helped cut down on the amount of oil used in making eating healthy easy. The air fryer will cook proteins such as chicken, beef or pork just like any other type of frying process.

Air Fryer Roasted Vegetables
Don't forget to add vegetables to your delicious dinner recipe! Using an air fryer to "roast" vegetables is another option instead of using the oven.
Just like when you roast vegetables in the oven, you need to also lay them flat in the air fryer. Try not to pile them up on top of each other. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes making sure you shake the basket or tray at least once during the cooking process.
You can toss the veggies with a little bit of olive oil or spray them lightly with non-stick baking spray. The outcome of air-frying your vegetables is comparable to roasting, although the outside is a little crispier.
Can you put raw meat in Air Fryer?
As long as you are using the correct food handling techniques, place raw meat in the air fryer is completely safe.
Always remember to check the doneness of your meat with an instant read digital thermometer. And don't forget to flip the food over halfway through the cooking process.
