This air fryer meal is so easy to make. You can feed around 4-5 people in just one batch. It takes less than half an hour to cook and no longer than an hour to prepare and marinate!

This air fryer recipe is the perfect example of just what you can exactly do in your air fryer.

How to Make This Recipe

marinate the chicken with ranch seasoning

First, you will want to cut and prepare the chicken. I like to mix together the marinade ingredients (2 tablespoons honey, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, 2 tablespoons ranch dressing mix, 1 tablespoon avocado oil) in a small to medium bowl. Then, I cut the chicken into bite sized pieces.

marinate the chicken

Next, I combine the chicken with the marinade and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes.

How to Cook Potatoes in the Air Fryer

While the chicken marinates, you can cook the potatoes and veggies in the air fryer. It will take about 10 to 15 minutes to cook potatoes in the air fryer, plus however long it takes you to cut the potatoes and other vegetable. So, plan accordingly with your marinating time.

To cook these potatoes in the air fryer, chop the potatoes, zucchini, and onion into bite sized pieces. Then place the potatoes, zucchini, and onion in the air fryer basket. Stir in 1 tablespoon of avocado oil then season with 1 tablespoon of Ranch Dressing mix, and 1/2 tsp pepper.

Cook the potatoes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 175 degrees Celsius for 10-15 minutes, or until the potatoes and veggies are nearly cooked through and almost perfectly tender.

Comments & Reviews

  • Hi Cathy,
    Good morning and greetings from Corning, NY. I’m a big fan! I bought your cookbook and really like it.

    I have one favor to ask. When you post a recipe like this I hate looking at all ads!! It drives me nuts and I have to some how sort through it all just to print out the recipe. Why soooo many ads? It takes away from the great value and entertainment you add. So frustrating.

    Thanks for listening!

    Warm Regards,
    Andy

    • Hi Andy, I understand that ads can be frustrating. It is how we keep the lights on, so to speak, and keep lots of team members employed to keep the content new (and free) on our site. We totally appreciate the feedback, though, and are always evaluating user experience, so THANK YOU for taking the time to let us know.

  • Hi Kathy:
    Love your youtube and fabulessly frugal sites and the recipes. Quick question: where do I find the replacement recipes for the spiral cookbook. I recently had my computer overhauled and I missing some items so want to update the recipes that had some errors in them. Thanks so much!
