Here, you’ll find a range of great options showing you how to cook healthy chicken, including cooking chicken in an air fryer and different ways of cooking chicken without oil. 

    How to cook chicken in an air fryer


    Air frying is an innovative way to cook chicken that gives the delicious taste of frying without the need for lots of oil. This is a great alternative to deep frying, as it makes chicken just as crispy and tasty, while requiring far less fat by using powerful waves of hot air to evenly cook your food. You don’t have to miss out on indulgent, delicious chicken wings or tenders fried to perfection – all of this can be achieved with less oil and more air!

    We recommend starting with this easy-but-effective recipe for boneless buffalo wings. If you’re having a barbecue, why not try spicy drumsticks in a so-good-you’ll-lick-it-off-your-fingers marinade? Or, if you want to try some more adventurous flavors, have a go at this recipe for perfectly tender roasted Asian chicken wings. The air fryer allows for completely versatile, yet simple ways to cook chicken to keep both family and friends happy.
