Who would have thought there would be a healthy alternative to frying food? We certainly didn’t, but now it’s here we couldn’t be happier!
Over the past few months, we’ve all been trying to get creative in the kitchen. For many of us, this is probably the longest time we’ve spent without relying on a cheeky meal out here.
So even though we are still encouraging you all to ‘eat out to help out’, we think it’s time we all fall back in love with our cooking again. Cooking a full, wholesome meal doesn’t mean you need to spend hours slaving away in the kitchen. There are plenty of handy bits of kit which will beef up your cooking game but require minimal effort. The one we’ll be focusing on today is the air fryer.
What Is An Air Fryer?
Air fryers are an excellent alternative to deep frying food. They eliminate the need for extra fat in cooking. They can cook a range of food, from prawns to chicken drumsticks, and more surprising options like cheesecake.
We think they’re a much-needed part of any kitchen, and to prove it we thought we’d share some of our favourite recipes you can make with them!
Crispy Chicken Strips
We don’t care that chicken strips are typically found on the kid’s menu. Chicken strips are a delightful addition to any meal, and we were over the moon to find out that you could make them in an air fryer.
This recipe from is from 'I am a food blog'. It's perfect for anyone looking to satisfy a chicken craving. We recommend adding some Harrisons Mayonnaise or Vegan Mayonnaise to this dish. You can view the recipe by clicking here.

Healthy pizza? We’re down if you are! Air fried pizza is a complete game-changer if you’re looking for healthy, time-efficient food.
However, unless you have a super large air fryer, we don’t think you’ll be able to make a full-size pizza!

French fries are a real fast food staple, so this is another brilliant recipe for us to try out on the air fryer.
As BBQ season returns, we imagine this will be another scorching recipe. We believe a plate of healthy fries with a side serving of Harrisons will go down a treat at the next garden party! To view this recipe, click here.
