Air Fryer Chicken Recipes. Back by popular demand we have all of our best ever chicken recipes in the Air Fryer all in one place. Download and save all these amazing air fryer chicken recipes for later and you will remind yourself that the Air Fryer was the best kitchen gadget you ever bought!
We have had our Air Fryer for a long time now. I can’t remember the exact date when we got the Air Fryer but Dominic and I agree that it must have been some time in late 2011 or early 2012.
We saw an advertisement in a British diet magazine for one and within a couple of weeks we were testing chicken out in our kitchen. It was this particular version of the Philips Airfryer and if you are still on the fence about getting one, go with Philips. I have seen lots of other Air Fryers come and go, but Philips was the first and it’s a case of you “get what you pay for”. Its more money than the others but it has no flaws and my first Philips Airfryer did more than 5 years from daily abuse.
Compare this to other Air Fryer models I have tried, that have never lasted much longer than 2 years and it makes you realise you must pay for the quality, if you want a long-term kitchen gadget.
There are 2 types of food that I would say are just meant to be cooked in the air fryer. The first is potatoes and then the second is chicken. Both are good because you can have all your naughty fast food for very little calories and it often tastes as good (if not better) than having a takeaway.
That’s probably why, above all others why our chicken and potato recipes get the most views on our blog, the most social shares and get talked about the most.
But I often get asked, if I am going to put together a new round of my air fryer chicken recipes, with it being such a long time since I last did it. If you have not read it, this is our original chicken recipes in the airfryer post, that we wrote back in September 2016 only had a few of our favourites on, and we have many more. So, we should be calling this chicken air fryer recipes volume 2!
So, sit back and relax and let me take you through our love for air fryer chicken recipes with our BEST EVER recipe ideas. These are so good, not only will they make you hungry straight away, but you will want to be trying out all these recipes!
