love itI got to watching a lot of air fryer cooking because a friend of mine said she loved hers. And has all but stopped using her oven and frying food in oil. Curiosity finally got the better of me, so I watched a lot of video's of tutorials on cooking my favorites. Friend chicken, stuff jalapeno's and a few others.
I rarely ran across a bad review. Or seen many bad comments about air fryer, so I bought one.
Yesterday, I cooked for the first time on it. 8 stuffed jalapeno's and batter fried chicken. I ended up eating 7 of the jalapeno's before the chicken was ready. They turned out so darn good.
The chicken, needs a little detail in describing. It was very good. But the first couple of bites weren't exactly as I was expecting. Normally, I season the flour, drop my chicken in milk & egg, then drop it into the zip lock baggie, with the seasoned flour. Then put it into a hot cast iron skillet and fry it like that. I did the same exact thing, only put it into the air fryer. The taste was very good. The difference was I could actually taste the seasoning. Where as when you skillet fry chicken, the seasoning taste isn't near as noticeable. I suppose the oil taste overrides the seasoning, or something to that effect. But in the air fryer, I could clearly taste the seasoning. And the chicken was still very juicy.
Now, FYI, I LOVE the taste of chicken fried in oil. It's what I grew up with.
I've going to try a sirloin steak in it this week. The tutorials i've watched on those also show the streaks coming out very juicy.
Anyone else use an air fryer?
