Notes about this book

  • Foodiewife on July 05, 2019

    Nut Encrusted Chicken - very good! Loved how the panko, nuts and melted butter are toasted to golden brown in the microwave! Who knew! This was my first air fryer recipe I've ever made and I loved it.

  • jenmacgregor18 on February 27, 2019

    buffalo drumsticks - I have a Oster convection oven. They don't get crunchy, like the fried ones. but a little crisper than under the oven broiler. Dry rub seasoning is good & the sauce too, which clings well. Since they don't get crunchy anyway, I might just use the same treatment with boneless, skinless chicken thighs - more meat, less tendons/fat.

    Maple-Glazed Acorn Squash is wonderful. Even my squash hating husband liked it.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Spicy fried-chicken sandwich

    • MollyB on July 20, 2021

      These were great! Crispy and very tasty with the iceberg lettuce and pickled jalapenos. Check early for doneness; we took them out earlier than listed in the recipe, as we suspected our pieces were smaller than what the recipe expected. Leftovers are either not crispy or overcooked and dry if you try to crisp them. I'd suggest only making what you'll eat at one sitting.

  • Tandoori chicken thighs

    • Wende on July 13, 2023

      This was easy. The chicken was incredibly moist and very tasty, but I did add and extra pinch or two to the spice amounts after reading mamacrumbcake's note. When I lived in LA several years ago, it seemed as though everyone who had a grill was making a version of this. This lacks the charcoal taste, but otherwise seems pretty close to what I remember.

    • mamacrumbcake on January 26, 2023

      Very easy and quick. But it just takes like chicken cooked on the grill—no tandoori chicken flavor at all. (Marinade time was only 10 minutes.) The chicken was nicely cooked and juicy, though. Cooked for 22 minutes at 400.

  • Teriyaki chicken with snow peas

    • mamacrumbcake on January 26, 2023

      The chicken turned out well. Some changes I made: remove 2 tablespoons of marinade before adding chicken. Marinate 1 hour. Set air fryer for 22 minutes. At 17 minutes, brush on teriyaki sauce. Air fry another 3 minutes. It was done in 20. Like the Tandoori chicken from same book, very light on the flavor so it tastes mostly like grilled chicken. It doesn’t really take on the flavor of the marinade. Looks nice though. A solid 3 stars. Didn’t make snow peas. Made stir fry instead.

  • French fries

    • bwhip on July 20, 2023

      I was really pleased with how these turned out - the next best thing to traditionally fried fries, for sure. A few steps involved, but not at all difficult.

    • Shewi128 on March 12, 2021

      Of course, these aren't as good as regular French fries, but they still are fairly crispy even with minimal oil. Edited to add: I made these again, and they were phenomenal. I'd highly recommend this recipe for low-oil French fries!

  • BBQ potato wedges

    • hbakke on January 12, 2022

      These were great, but the instructions were kind of tedious to keep removing the wedges and tossing in a bowl. I simplified it by just tossing in the air fryer basket and I think it worked well. Although the spices seemed simplistic, they created a nice barbecue flavor. I would make these again.

    • Shewi128 on March 12, 2021

      I've made almost every spice variation of this recipe multiple times. Yes, taking the wedges in and out of the fryer is tedious, but they turn out well every single time.

  • Air-fried Brussels sprouts

    • Shewi128 on June 23, 2022

      These turned out almost as good as the regular fried brussels sprouts. However, watch them at the end so they don't burn!

  • Air-fried chicken

    • Shewi128 on September 26, 2022

      This was equivalent to oven-fried chicken. It was easy to make, and the chicken wasn't dry. I would make it again--maybe.

  • Southwestern bean and corn hand pies

    • Shewi128 on March 20, 2023

      I made this filling. It was ok--nothing special. However, any filling in a hand pie is going to be amazing because the crust is great and you can eat it without a fork. I'd make these again--maybe.

  • Creamy chipotle chile sauce

    • Acarroll on January 27, 2024

      I was looking for a way to use leftover chipotles in adobo and this was perfect. I didn't have sour cream so I doubled the amount of (vegan) mayo. I also doubled the amount of chipotle, garlic, and cilantro. Was perfect served with crab cakes.
