If you got a new air fryer but don’t quite know what to make in it (besides fries), check out these easy & tasty air fryer chicken recipes. I know I’ll be adding at least a few of them to my meal plan!

I bought an air fryer years ago, but don’t use it nearly as often as I should. It’s getting kind of old and while it still works well, I am thinking of an upgrade soon. Before investing in a new model, though, I wanted to see if I could feasibly use it to make more than just french fries (it’s primary purpose in our house right now). Turns out, you can do a lot more with one than I originally thought. You can even make chicken for dinner in one, as evidenced by these recipes below.

More Air Fryer Chicken Recipes

I don’t want to overload you with pictures (plus, I don’t really feel like uploading almost a dozen more, if I’m being honest), but I also didn’t want to leave these off the list!

Scan through and see if one catches your eye, then visit the blog for the recipe. Also, saying “air fryer chicken” over and over got repetitive, so just mentally add the words “air fryer” to each recipe. 🙂
