We love using the air fryer for "frying" up some of our favorite dishes. From chicken parmesan to veggie fries and most recently bagels and empanadas, the options are endless. So we decided to try out wings this time around. It was the perfect meal for some Sunday football enjoyment. We also roasted up some crispy brussel sprouts with bacon and a cranberry balsamic drizzle for a complete meal. Here's everything you'll need for this dish:
Ingredients (for wings)
1 lb of chicken wings or drumsticks
1 c of nonfat greek yogurt
3 tbsp of paprika
1 tbsp of oregano
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 c of Kentucky Kernel seasoned flour
1 c of hot wing sauce (Frank's or your favorite hot sauce)
Mix together yogurt and lemon juice with all seasonings and spoon into a ziplock bag. Add chicken and let marinate for at least 4 hours. In a flat plate evenly spread out your seasoned flour and dredge your wings in both sides. Make sure to preheat your air fryer to 400 for 24-25 minutes. Spray the inside of your airy fryer before adding the wings as well as the top of your chicken. Half way through cook time make sure to flip wings over. Once they are done, place in a bowl and toss with your favorite marinade or hot sauce. Serve with your favorite dressing and crudités.
The perfect side to cool down our tastebuds were these crispy brussel sprouts. We topped our with crumbled bacon and drizzled the top with sweet cranberry balsamic. This side is perfect with anytime of dish or can serve as a meal in itself. Here's everything you will need:
1 lb of brussel sprouts
4 slices of Trader Joe's classic dry rubbed, all natural uncured bacon
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of pepper
1 tbsp of garlic powder
2 tbsp of cranberry balsamic (or any flavored balsamic you'd like to use)
Cook your bacon in a pan on the stovetop. Once cooked, remove and let excess grease drain on a plate topped with paper towel. Using the bacon fat in the pan, add your brussel sprouts, salt, pepper and garlic powder and sauté for about 10 minutes until your brussel sprouts soften. Preheat your oven to 400 on roast and add your brussel sprouts to a non greased baking sheet. Roast for 20 minutes until they start to develop a crispy brown skin. Two minutes before they are done, drizzle with your balsamic and toss. Roast for an additional 2 minutes. Place on a serving dish and top with your crumbled bacon.
