Four Quick Kid Friendly Air Fryer Snacks!

Disclosure: This post brought to you by Philips.

I told you all about the Home30 challenge Philips asked me to take on about a month ago. All I had to do was cook a home-cooked meal every day, for 30 days. Easy right? Well thanks to the Air Fryer they sent me to help out it was a cinch!!DDDE7854FEC8F9ECD4ABB6DE475F9A11The recipe book that came with it was jam packed with creative ideas, but in my house I have some pretty picky eaters. So we had to create our own! I found that I reached for the Air Fryer around lunch time the most. It comes with a 30 minute timer with ready signal and auto shut-off. The fully adjustable temperature control allows you to preset the best cooking temperature for your food up to 390°F and walk away. This allowed me to cook lunch, do a school lesson, put a baby down for a nap and cook lunch all at the same time!

The following five foods we cook in our air fryer about once a week. They are quick, easy and the kids gobble them up!!

Chicken Chunks: Preheat the Air fryer to 330°F. Cut chicken breasts or tenders into bite size pieces. Coat in seasoning of your choice. For the kids we often use Lawry’s, the adults like kickin chicken! Cook for 10 minutes or until golden brown. I found shaking the basket half way through cooking allowed the chicken to cook better. Served with a dip of their choice, this is the kids new favorite way to eat chicken!

Pigs In Blankets: For this all you need is beanie weanies and crescent rolls. Preheat the Airfryer to 330°F. Roll a strip of crescent rolls around each beanie weanie. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes to firm. Cook for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. We did this with sausages one morning as well, it was the perfect breakfast dunked in syrup.

MeatBalls: Instead of dragging out the crock pot, we made meatballs in our Air Fryer and actually ended up liking the taste better than our crock pot (shhhhhh dont tell anyone!). We used fresh made meatballs one night and cheated another night with frozen ones. Both times they were delish. For both fresh and frozen we cooked on 390°F for 12 minutes. Serving them on toothpicks made them fun for the kids to eat!!

French Fries: These were the hardest food we made in the Air Fryer during the Home30 challange, but it was so worth it. You need a few large, peeled and chopped russet potatoes. You soak them in water for an hour, dry them and then sprinkle oil on them. We cooked on 390°F for 20 minutes and flipped them four times during cooking.

    The air fryer looks like something I would want to try. 🙂
    Thanks for the review of it.

  2. These are all REALLY great ideas. We’ve had one for over a year and the only think we’ve used it for is french fries!
