Us­ing the air fryer oven

Times-Record - - NEWS - By MARIE SAV­AGE Food Colum­nist

The lat­est craze in the kitchen is the air fryer oven. Ev­ery cook who has one says they are a won­der­ful way to cook with no stand­ing over the stove, and ex­tremely easy to use. There are sev­eral styles of the cooker, with the bowl or bas­ket and the dial or dig­i­tal set­tings. Check with oth­ers be­fore you buy one and also check out the styles in the store.

Air fried chicken wings

This chicken is de­li­cious with­out all of the grease of a deep fryer. Place 1 lb. of chicken wings in a large bowl. Pour in 3 tbsp. veg­etable oil and then toss to coat the wings well. In an­other bowl add 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 tsp. pa­prika, 1/2 tsp. gar­lic pow­der, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. black pep­per. Whisk the dry in­gre­di­ents well. One at a time, take each in­di­vid­ual wing and place in the dry in­gre­di­ents and coat well. Place each wing in the air fry bas­ket. Set your air fryer on 400 de­grees and cook for 20 to 25 min­utes, flip­ping hall­way through the cook­ing. Make sure the bread­ing is golden brown and the wings are crunchy be­fore serv­ing.

Honey mus­tard pork chops

In a large bowl, mix 4 tbsp. mus­tard, 2 tbsp. honey, 2 tbsp. minced gar­lic, 1 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. pep­per. Add four 1/2-in. pork chops and toss to coat well in the mix­ture. Spray the air fryer bas­ket with spray oil. Place the chops in the greased bas­ket. Set the air fryer to 350 de­grees and cook for 12 min­utes or un­til the pork is cooked all the way through, by flip­ping about half­way through the cook­ing process, mak­ing sure to spray the bas­ket again at the half­way point.

Air fryer sea­soned french fries

Scrub four medium po­ta­toes and then slice into strips. Soak the po­ta­toes in a bowl of wa­ter for at least 30 to 45 min­utes. Drain off the wa­ter and pat dry. Place po­ta­toes in a bowl and pour 2 tbsp. Pure Vir­gin Co­conut or your fa­vorite oil over the fries and toss well to coat. Add 1 tbsp. sea­soned salt; use a salt your fam­ily likes. You can add the fa­vorite Old Bay sea­son­ing at this time. Place the po­ta­toes in the fryer bas­ket and fry at 400 de­grees for 15 min­utes. Shake the bas­ket about half­way through the cook­ing. The kids will love these fries so make sure you make sev­eral batches.
