Frozen French Fries
Frozen french fries are our favorite side dish. They make a great snack or meal when we don’t have time to cook. Frozen cut potatoes taste just as good baked in the oven, but they’re much more crispy air-fried! Hot circulating hot air cooks them quickly and crisply – it’s hard not to eat these every day because they remind of us how fresh all that healthy food can be without sacrificing flavor
Frozen Breaded Chicken Breast
An air fryer is a great way to cook your frozen chicken breasts. The hot-air circulates around the meat, making it crispy and delicious on the outside while remaining juicy and tender inside thanks to its moist heat. You don’t have to wait for heating up an oven before cooking a few breast fillets in there – this can be done quickly with no hassle at all! Add some vegetables or make homemade gravy if you want extra flavors. There are many different brands of these products nowadays so find what best suits your needs!
Frozen Hash Brown Paties
Air frying is a healthier and easier way to make hash browns paties. Frozen patties already have oil, so you don’t need to add any more when cooking them with your new air fryer! If deep fried or crispy texture is desired though, then just spray the frozen potatoes before placing on the wire rack. The process takes only about 10 minutes and it’s perfect for breakfast time throughout the week – especially if guests are coming over!
Frozen Chicken Nuggets
We recommend you try our air-fried frozen chicken nuggets! Air frying makes them crispy and cooks fast. Frozen, pre-cooked air fried chicken nuggets can be prepared in a variety of ways: Take the frozen packets straight from your freezer to reheat in air fryer for 10 -12 minutes depending on how thick or small they are; it is not necessary to oil spray these as there would have been sufficient amounts put into during the initial cooking process.
Frozen Chicken Wings
There are many brands and types of frozen chicken wings available in the market today- from plain or breaded ones that you can season on your own but also pre-sauced versions for those who don’t want any prep time involved at all. Knowing which type of wing we’re cooking will help us get amazing results every single time! The best part is when these already tasty fried chickens were prepared using an Air Fryer. It was perfect straight out of the freezer without requiring a microwave defrosting session beforehand like other food items would typically need before frying them.
A quick and easy way to enjoy a waffle breakfast is with frozen waffles from the air fryer. Frozen Waffles are softer when they are heated in the microwave, but these Air-fried ones have crisp edges too! For an even quicker morning meal that’s more filling than just cereal or toast, add fresh fruit like berries on top of your frozen waffle!
Frozen pancakes are always a good idea when you need breakfast on the go. These frozen ones in particular can be heated up quickly and easily with an air fryer, making them perfect for those mornings where you have to get out of the house as early as possible! The microwave makes pancake edges crispy while air frying keeps their softness. If that’s not enough, add fresh berries on top of your favorite flavor like strawberry or blueberry for an added flair of sweetness!
Frozen Chicken Tenders
Air fryer cooking is easy with pre-cooked frozen chicken tenders. These can be cooked quickly in the oven by simply going from the freezer to your air fryer. You don’t have to spray them, because they are already precooked! Frozen chicken strips taste great when fried and crispy inside. They’re a favorite for kids too – whether it’s as a snack or lunch/dinner option!
Frozen Fruit Puff Pastries
Since the invention of electric ovens, people have been using them for baking sweet treats. Recently though, with more and more cooks making substitutions to their kitchens in order to be eco-friendly or just make cooking easier overall (via appliances like air fryers), we wanted to test out a frozen puff pastry dish that would normally require an oven but could easily work well without one by being popped into your trusty air fryer! The results were as expected – so delicious you might not want it any other way from now on.
Frozen Fish Fillets
We found it easy to make frozen fish fillets in the air fryer. They are crispy and delicious! It’s a game-changer to cook frozen, prepped fish with hot air instead of oil or butter that would add pounds onto your diet.
The recipe is simple: just buy some tarter sauce for dipping if desired (or even mix mayonnaise and relish) put out lemon slices as well as any other sides you want on the side then dip them into these frozen fish fillets
