One of my husband’s favorite dishes is duck prepared with orange sauce. However, being that whole ducks are longer than whole chickens, it’s challenging to find one that will fit in the air fryer. And, like preparing whole chicken, sometimes I simply don’t have time to wait by the oven for two hours while it cooks. But what to my wondering eyes should appear during my last Aldi run? A fully cooked half-duck, which is sure to be a staple in my home from now on. So, hold onto your hats, duck lovers. Here’s how to prepare an air fryer roasted duck.

Roasted Duck in the Air Fryer: Impress that Special Someone

Served as a delicacy at most fine restaurants, roasted duck is a tasty, tender alternative to chicken or turkey.

While it is delicious with rosemary and mushrooms, the most popular way to serve this dish is with sweet, spicy orange sauce. Another of my husband’s favorite treats. Serving duck is different from the norm, and because it’s all dark meat, you’ll find this water fowl to be moist and savory.

It can be dressed up or down, depending upon the occasion, but never fails to impress the special people in your life, whether cooking a romantic dinner for two or preparing a meal for a special occasion.

Easy in the Air Fryer

While I didn’t cook this from its raw state, this fantastic fully cooked find was ready in minutes.

Served with quick, simple sides, like rice and green beans, you’ll have only 15-20 minutes tops in this impressive meal. The air fryer doesn’t require any pre-heating time, and because this dish was fully cooked already, your only effort is really to heat it thoroughly and baste it with the orange sauce, which also came prepared with the duck.

I can’t say enough about this meal. My husband came home from a long day at work to his favorite dish and glass of wine and savored every bite! This dish will definitely make the meal rotation!

Roasted Duck in the Air Fryer

  • 1 fully cooked half-duck
  1. Place the half-duck in your air fryer basket. 

  2. Cook at 360 for 12-15 minutes. 

  3. Drizzle with orange sauce and serve!

If you are looking for a quick treat to prepare for breakfast or to serve for guests with coffee, cinnamon rolls are always a popular choice. They are delicious, easy, and always a favorite among guests and family members. They make the perfect quick breakfast on holidays and weekends or for any occasion at all. The best news? Your air fryer can make this quick dish even quicker! So we are pleased to tell you how to make air fryer cinnamon rolls!

Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls: A Faster Alternative

Everyone has their favorite brand. Ours is Pillsbury. Yes, we pop the can open like every other busy American with better things to do than whip up a batch from scratch. We’re here to make your life easier. With an 11-13 minute cook time, plus the 15 minutes it takes to pre-heat the oven, you’ll spend almost 30 minutes baking cinnamon rolls in a conventional oven.

However, because there is not preheat time, the air fryer can get the job done in half the time.

Find the Right Balance

Depending on the capacity and brand of your air fryer, you may need to adjust the temperature and times accordingly. A general rule of thumb with air fryers, especially when it comes to “baking”, is the set a lower temperature and reduce the time.

For my French May air fryer, I find that it takes around 15 minutes at 340 degrees, flipping once. However, my Chefman is a little different. I bake the cinnamon rolls at 360 for 12 minutes, flipping halfway. So if it’s the first time you’ve tried cinnamon rolls in the air fryer, be sure to check them often and make needed adjustments.

Cinnamon Rolls in the Air Fryer

  • 1 can cinnamon rolls (We used Pillsbury)
  • 1 spray non-stick cooking spray
  1. Place the cinnamon rolls in the basket of your air fryer, using parchment paper rounds or non-stick cooking spray.

  2. Cook at 340 degrees for 12-15 minutes, turning once. 

  3. Drizzle with icing, plate, and serve.

These are great for breakfast or as a dessert. See our other recipes for air fryer breakfast and dessert ideas

Here we are once again at the beginning of a new year. What will 2019 hold for you? More time with family? Fitness goals? Financial milestones? Whatever your goals for this year, it’s never a bad idea to focus on healthier eating. So on the first day of 2019, Air Frying wants to help you reach your full potential with some healthy air fryer recipes.

Air Frying: An Easier, Healthier Alternative

For those of you who enjoy convenient healthy meals that don’t make you feel like you’re missing out on the foods you love, air frying is a faster, healthier alternative to deep frying. Prepared with minimal to no fatty oil and fried through rapid air technology, rather than hot oil, air frying your favorite foods–even foods that aren’t “health” foods–cuts back on additional fat and calories from submerging your food in unhealthy oils.

In addition to providing healthier options, air frying also saves time. First, it cuts out the 8-15 minutes of pre-heating time your oven requires. Just put the food in the basket, set the temperature, set the timer, and go! Because of the rapid air technology, food also cooks faster than baking it in the oven. One of my favorite things to do in the air fryer is meal prep. While potatoes bake in the oven, I can prepare chicken tenderloin or lean pork chops in the air fryer, cutting my time in half.

So, if you’re looking for a faster, healthier alternatives in the new year, air frying just might be for you.

Healthy Air Fryer Recipes: Main Courses

If you’re looking for a welcome departure from a typical meat and sides meal, then try our General Wong’s Beef and Broccoli. With healthy broccoli and lean beef, this dish is packed with fiber and nutrients. For those of you who are gluten-free diets, like Paleo, Whole 30, or Keto, simply substitute the soy sauce for coconut aminos and enjoy this dish, guilt-free!

When the new year strikes, many people decide to reduce their intake of meats and opt instead for beans, often touted as a nearly perfect food. Packed with nutrients and fiber, low-glycemic black beans make a great alternative to beef. Whether you’re a vegetarian, vegan, nutritarian, or someone who is simply trying to make healthier decisions, try out our delicious black bean burgers.

One of our most popular recipes, bone-in-pork chops are healthy and fast in the air fryer. This recipe is one of our favorite for meal prep or quick weeknight dinners. Plus, lean pork is a cost-effective choice on many popular protein-dense diets, like Keto, Paleo, and Whole 30.

Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, Salmon is a staple in many popular healthy diets. When prepared in the air fryer, cooking salmon for the entire family is quick and easy. With just a drizzle of olive oil to lock in the moisture and prevent dryness, this is one of our favorite and most popular recipes.

If you’re not a fan of fish, tilapia is a mild tasting fish that even the pickiest of seafood haters can tolerate. Low in fat and calories, tilapia can provide a satisfying alternative to fattier meats.

Once you try our whole chicken in the air fryer, you’ll never cook this dish in the oven ever again! Whole chicken will feed an entire family of five and is a wonderful choice for meal prep. Cooking whole chicken in the air fryer saves a bit of time and delivers a crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside main course that will have your family begging for seconds.

Healthy Air Fryer Recipes: Sides

After a long day of work, one thing I find tedious is the 15 minute wait required for my oven to preheat to the high temperature it takes to bake a potato. But thankfully, I have an air fryer. Right of the bat, it saves at least fifteen minutes of prep time, and when cooked at 400, your baked potato will be cooked to perfection in 35-45 minutes, depending on its size.

Most healthy diets include calciferous veggies like broccoli and cauliflower. But sometimes, ho-hum steamed broccoli can get really old really fast in many families. Most of the time, our first instinct is to add cheese, which does taste delicious, but it also adds undesirable fat and calories. Try our broccoli with Parmesan and panko. This low calorie, low fat side is packed with fiber and nutrients.

These delicious, crisp legumes are a welcome alternative to boiled green beans. When cooked in the air fryer, these al dente beans are an appealing bright green and packed with flavor. This is one of our favorites!

I’m not sure how I ever existed without spaghetti squash. I discovered this nutrient-rich, low-carb alternative to pasta a couple of years ago and have never looked back. While I have prepped with dish in the oven, microwave, and slow cooker, my favorite cooking method is the air fryer, which saves time!

Cook your sweet potatoes in the air fryer for a fast, efficient way to enjoy a delicious, cooked-to-perfection, healthy side dish.

Popular on most nutrient dense or low carb diets, zucchini, squash, and onions are a staple in our home. I add just enough olive oil to lightly coat these veggies for added flavor and then season to taste. This side is definitely worth the chopping time!

If you’re looking to spice up your Taco Tuesday or prep quick and easy weeknight fajitas, then your air fryer is about to be your best friend. Rather than hovering over the skillet for twenty minutes, cook your frozen chicken fajita filling in the air fryer.

Chicken Fajita Filling in the Air Fryer is Easy

Okay, so I’ll admit that it doesn’t take all that much effort to prep frozen fajita filling on the stove top. However, unlike cooking fajita mix in a skillet, there is no need to continually check or or hover over the stove when doing your prep in the air fryer. Plus, clean up is simple. Just rinse in hot soapy water, or let the dishwasher do the job for you, rather than having to get your hands dirty.

The Texture is better in the Air Fryer

The texture will be better as well. As the chicken and veggies thaw, all the water drops into the bottom of the air fryer, which yields a crisp juicy texture. On the stove top, the ingredients will simmer in water, leaving your filling soggy and limp. Whether you’re using the filling for chicken and veggie tacos or having a fajita night, your family will be pleased with the crisp veggies and evenly cooked chicken that won’t hold water. There’s nothing worse than a soggy taco shell or flour tortilla.

So if you’re pressed for time on a busy weeknight, frozen fajita filling in the air fryer is an optimal choice that your family will love. With all the time you’ll save on this easy meal, you’ll have more time to spend with your family and friends.

Cook from frozen at 400 for around 8 minutes.

Whether you’re prepping for a holiday potluck or planning a game-day spread, the humble quiche is a welcome addition to any great party. Cheesy and oh-so-delicious, speed up your party prep by trying our mini spinach quiche in the air fryer.

Save Time with Quiche in the Air Fryer

With no time wasted pre-heating the oven, making quiche in the air fryer is a huge time saver. In the oven, quiche is cooked at a low temperature for about 30 to 45 minutes, depending upon the size of the pie. Add 8 to 10 minutes for the preh-heat, and you’ve been baking for around an hour.

Thanks to your air fryer’s rapid air technology, however, a frozen quiche heats through in only 15 minutes. Similar timing applies with made-from-scratch quiche, which can beĀ  prepped and cooked in as little as 30 minutes, or with frozen petite quiche bites, which takes around 10 minutes. Just be sure to get the temperature right so that you don’t burn the cheese before the middle of the quiche cooks.

With the time you save by cooking this delicious dish in the air fryer,you’ll have plenty of time to concentrate on additional finger foods for your holiday party or get-together.

Spinach Quiche in the Air Fryer

  • 1 frozen mini Quiche
  1. Place the quiche in the air fryer basket.

  2. Cook at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

  3. Plate and Enjoy!

If you’re looking for some great holiday desserts to prepare for upcoming celebrations, look no further than this compilation of our favorite desserts in the air fryer, brought to you by airfrying.net.

While you won’t produce as much volume in the air fryer, your handy dandy countertop appliance is perfect for small batches, taking care of extra servings when used in combination with your oven, and for saving time. So check out our favorite dessert recipes that can be prepared quickly and efficiently in your air fryer.

Time and Temperature for Desserts in the Air Fryer

It is important to remember that it might take some experimentation when “baking” dessert items in the air fryer. For desserts like berry eggrolls, which you can find in our cookbook, you can typically use higher temperatures. However, for traditional baked goods like cookies and cakes, you will need to cook at a lower temperature, usually 325, for about the same amount of cook time. OR you will need to cook at the same temperature for about half the time it would take to bake in the oven.

Temperature and time will also depend upon the brand and size of your air fryer. So if you want to master baked goods in the air fryer, which can save you lots of time, be prepared to play around with the times and temperatures.

Holiday Desserts in the Air Fryer

Christmas Pretzel Candy

These candies are not only delicious, but they are also colorful and festive. Made of three of your favorite sweet and salty snack items, these candies are sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Plus, they are super easy, and your air fryer will help you get the job done faster.

Christmas Tree Brownies

These brownies are my favorite dessert to prepare in the air fryer. I will say that you can make a larger volume of brownies in a conventional oven, but I bake an extra batch or two in the air fryer to save time while the rest cook in the oven. When baking brownies or cake in the air fryer, beware of your air fryer temperature. If your temperature is too hot, the brownies will burn on top and remain raw in the middle. There might be a learning curve at first, but after a few tries, I was able to achieve expert status!

Apple Dumplings

Serve up these decadent dumplings with vanilla ice cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. This dessert is like a mini personal pie for your guests and provides the perfect final course for a delicious holiday meal. Trust us when we say that this dessert will not disappoint.

Donuts

Who doesn’t love a delicious cinnamon sugar doughnut served warm with your morning cup of coffee? While you can make your own doughnut dough from scratch, I like to save time by using biscuit dough, which makes for a scrumptious treat the whole family will love. If Cinnamon and Sugar isn’t your thing, try using a sugary glaze, chocolate icing, or powdered sugar.

Cookies

While this links to a Halloween cookie recipe, this can be easily adapted for Christmas. Whether using your own sugar cookie recipe or purchasing store-bought pre-made varieties, these tasty morsels won’t disappoint. Again, I use my air fryer when doing heavy baking. While the majority of my cookies bake in the oven, I use the air fryer to make extra batches, which is a huge time saver at our house.

It is important to note that with cookies, temperature is going to be everything. “Bake” at 350 for crispier cookies, but if you’re like me, and you prefer a softer sugar cookie, you’ll find more success when you set the temp to 325.

Happy Holidays From Airfrying!

With several recipes for main courses, sides, and desserts perfect for the holidays, we hope we have reduced some stress and made life easier in your home so that you can enjoy the most wonderful time of the year with your friends and family. So, from our home to yours, Happy Holidays and warmest wishes for a great 2019!
