WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE HEALTHY AIR FRYER CHICKEN AND VEGGIES

  • Chicken breasts: Chopping the chicken breast up ahead of time will make it cook evenly and faster. The bigger the pieces they are, the longer it will take.
  • Bell peppers: Chop up your favorite color of bell peppers or a combination of any of them. I love red because they add color and are a little sweeter but go with what you like best.
  • Zucchini: Roasting zucchini in the air fryer tastes impressive! You are going to want to cook it this way a lot after you taste it. Yum!
  • Broccoli: One thing I love about this air fryer recipe is that you can easily use fresh broccoli or frozen. This is wonderful when you don’t have fresh ones on hand.
  • Onion: Chop up some onions, and they will add lots of flavor to the chicken and veggies.
  • Garlic: The garlic is optional because we are already using garlic powder but it adds so much flavor and is highly recommended!
  • Olive oil: When it comes to cooking in your air fryer, you don’t need a lot of oil. It’s a much healthier option than deep fat frying food the way you get in a fast-food chain.
  • Seasonings: I love using a combination of seasonings to add flavor to the chicken and vegetables. Garlic powder, chili powder (or paprika), salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning are my go-to flavors. However, you could use lemon-pepper, cajun, or anything else you like.

HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER CHICKEN AND VEGETABLES

Making this air fryer chicken recipe couldn’t be any easier. Simply chop the vegetables and chicken into bite-sized pieces and place them in a large bowl.

Mix together the oil and seasonings and coat the chicken and veggies evenly. Then put the chicken and vegetables in the air fryer and cook. After they have cooked for 5 minutes or so, give them a shake and continue cooking. Keep cooking until the chicken is done, and everything has a char on it. You may need to work in batches if your air fryer isn’t very big.

2 cloved garlic minced or crushed
2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Add the oil and seasoning to the bowl and toss to combine.
