AIR FRYER LOADED CHICKEN AND POTATOES
I am bringing you another easy and delicious air fryer meal-in-one! I have received amazing feedback since posting the recipe for AIR FRYER POTATOES & SAUSAGE MEAL! Mostly, folks were telling me they loved being able to make an entire meal in the air fryer and not just a side dish. So, I grabbed another bag of Little Potatoes and got to work on another recipe.
WHY THIS RECIPE WORKS WELL WITH LITTLE POTATOES:
- If you are interested in gluten-free meals, this is it! Did you know Little potatoes are gluten-free and are a good source of dietary fiber?
- No peeling required! Little potatoes are already pre-washed too.
- What goes better with chicken than potatoes! You can season Little potatoes with the same exact seasonings as the chicken and the flavor of the Creamer potato will still shine through.
- The air fryer loves Little potatoes. I have absolutely loved creating recipes using these potatoes They hold up so well in the air fryer and they come out perfect every time!
TIPS FOR MAKING THIS AIR FRYER MEAL:
- If you are using large chicken breasts, you’ll only need two for this recipe
- Potatoes will be fork tender when done and chicken should reach an internal temperature of 165f degrees.
- Make sure to occasionally shake the basket while cooking. This will help to ensure that everything gets evenly cooked.
- Add additional veggies that your family loves. Broccoli, green peppers and cauliflower work wonderful in this.
- Mix up the seasoning for variety. Instead of the seasoned salt, try using a RANCH DRESSING MIX or TACO SEASONING!
