1. Air Fryer Jacket Potato
An air fryer jacket potato is a classic and you need to know how to make it. For a quick lunch or a relaxed dinner, you just cannot resist a jacket potato.
With deliciously crispy skin and a fluffy, creamy inside, it’s hard not to have one for every meal. And there is hardly any hard labor involved.
Start by washing and drying your potatoes. Cover in a generous amount of oil and seasoning. We recommend the classic salt and pepper if it’s your first time.
In the meantime, preheat your air fryer for around 5 minutes to ensure the potatoes will be warm when they go in.
Now all you need to do is pop them in the air fryer basket and cook for around 40 minutes.
This can differ depending on the size of your potatoes so if you need to you can check on them by pulling out the basket and giving them a prick with a sharp knife or fork. If they are not quite finished you can put them back in for another 5-10 minutes.
Serve with your favorite fillings. However, you cannot forget to let a knob of butter melt on the inside of the potato before adding your toppings.
Another top tip is to prick your potato all over with a fork before placing it in the air fryer. This allows the potato to cook more thoroughly and gives that mouthwatering fluffy inside.
Air fryer baked potatoes are great for serving a small crowd. They are refreshing and the perfect portion size for everyone at the neighborhood bbq.
Or you can store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and make yourself a quick lunch. Just reheat a baked potato in the microwave for a quick and easy meal.
2. Air Fryer Rotisserie Chicken
Now if you happen to have a Chefman 10 qt. 4-in-1 Air Fryer Oven then you may just want to try your hand at making this rotisserie chicken recipe. You’ll understand why it tops our list of the best air fryer with rotisserie.
That’s right, this large capacity air fryer has the ability to cook an entire chicken!
All you need is a whole chicken, 1 tablespoon of oil or butter, and your favorite seasonings. In just over an hour you could be serving your family a traditional rotisserie chicken made in the air fryer.
With golden crispy skin and juicy meat inside, what’s not to love? You must ensure that the internal temperature of your chicken is 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
If not, cook in 5-10 minute increments until the inside is 160 degrees fahrenheit.
This recipe is perfect for those holiday dinners where everyone seems to be endlessly hungry. With all of your favorite sides, you could have a chicken dinner every night of the week.
Serve with your favorite potatoes, greens, and drinks for the perfect, show stopping dish.
You will need an air fryer of no less than 3.5L in order to give the chicken even room in the basket. Otherwise, the air will not be able to circulate correctly and could make your dish inedible.
If you have a smaller air fryer, purchase a smaller chicken and adjust your time accordingly.

3. Air Fryer French Fries
Cooking crunchy yet fluffy french fries in the air fryer is a staple recipe that you will find yourself coming back to time and time again.
It’s all in the seasoning. All you need to do is cut your potatoes into the shapes of fries, coat them in a drizzle of oil, and your favorite seasonings, and place them in the air fryer.
The trick is to make sure each fry has enough room to cook. Layering your fries may cause uneven results.
Cook each batch for 13 minutes while the other stays warm in the oven. Once your batches are finished you can serve them with your favorite main dishes and of course, your favorite dips.
Making tasty, restaurant quality fries has never been so simple or healthy. With minimal oil, you really can have air fryer french fries for dinner every night.
Not to mention you can also reheat these french fries in the air fryer for a few minutes and they won’t go soggy like others. Alternatively, if you’re short on time, reheat fries in the microwave instead!
Try different seasonings to get a new creation every time. We love some spicy cajun fries with a delicious ranch dip. Yum!
If you find that your fries are still a little hard in the middle, here is a helpful tip. Boil your potatoes for roughly 5 minutes to help soften the insides before air frying. You are guaranteed to get crispy, fluffy, delicious french fries every time!
4. Air Fryer Burgers
Not sure what pair with your air fryer french fries? These air fryer burgers are simply tasty.
With just the right amount of seasoning and a significantly smaller amount of oil, your typically unhealthy dinner just got a new healthy makeover.
In less than 20 minutes you could be serving the family a delicious, nutritious meal without ever having to turn on the grill.
Now, we suggest starting from scratch. Stir together your burger meat, egg, and seasonings together and combine to create patties. You want them to be a little larger than your burger buns as they shrink when cooking.
Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side until they are crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.
You may have to cook in smaller batches depending on the size of your air fryer so pop your finished burger into some aluminum foil to keep warm while the others cook.
With a crispy burger bun and your favorite toppings. You cannot go wrong with some fresh lettuce, a slice of tomato, some red onion rings, pickles, and a drizzle of BBQ sauce. You could even cook some turkey bacon in the microwave to top your already-fatty burgers for a little extra flavor!
These burgers are the perfect dish to please a large crowd. Make a range of different burgers by swapping out the BBQ sauce for teriyaki, sriracha, or hot sauce.
You can also swap out the eggs for a flax egg or a tablespoon more sauce for those who have allergies.
Be the talk of the town with these air fryer burgers!
5. Air Fryer Salmon
Your Chefman air fryer isn’t just good for burgers and chicken, you can also cook stunning salmon. With a crispy exterior and a flaky, tender inside.
It’s perfect for a special date night or just to switch things up throughout the week.
Only got 15 minutes to make dinner? Great, because this salmon only takes 12!
Season with a simple combination of salt and pepper or be more exciting with Cajun, or garlic and herbs. Be creative and create your own blend of seasoning to make a unique salmon dish.
You can also create marinades. A classic honey garlic sauce will make everyone fall in love with your cooking every time. Or a smoky BBQ and sweet chili to give this salmon the all-American flavors.
Once you have coated your salmon with your seasonings and sauces, place it in the air fryer for 12 minutes. Check at 4-5 minutes to ensure your temperature isn’t too high.
If your salmon is less than ¾ of an inch thick then you may want to reduce the cooking time.
Hit the 12-minute mark and feel it is not quick finished? Cook for an extra 1-2 minutes to ensure it is cooked all the way through.
While your salmon is cooking you can get to work on the sides. Creamy mashed potatoes, garlicky boiled potatoes, buttered corn, or green beans. This salmon recipe goes with just about any side dish you can think of.
It is light, refreshing, and utterly delicious!
If you have some leftovers, you can always reheat salmon in the air fryer for an easy and tasty lunch the next day!
