Roasted Chicken w/Herbs ala Power Air Fryer


I considered this home cooker for a long time before buying 
yet another small appliance that would 
just take up space and collect dust.  
Now I wish I hadn’t waited so long 
as it turned out to be a great purchase!




It’s a 5 quart Power Air Fryer XL.  Using no oil or only a tablespoon or two of oil when cooking foods, this great home cooker lets you bake, steam, grill, sauté or fry your favorite foods, without the guilt.  

It probably resembles a convection oven, more than a deep fryer.  It cooks quickly, it’s easy to use and clean-up is a breeze.



Mmmm, mmm!  Crispy and delicious!


The best part was the delicious taste of the chicken it roasted, with its even, crispy crust on the outside, and its moist and tender meat on the inside. The heap of seasonings ~ rosemary and thyme, garlic and onion powders, was simple and perfect for flavoring up the chicken.  

Most of us like chicken and it goes well with about anything on the side, the price is right and it smells mouth-watering as it cooks.

We were very impressed with the end result of the chicken, and I know this small appliance is a keeper, as is the recipe!  






It was a delectable chicken and I’m really looking forward to a chicken sandwich with a dab of mayo for lunch today!


Roasted Chicken w/Herbs

Ingredients:

1 (5 pounds) chicken, whole
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder 
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon seasoned pepper
1 teaspoon rosemary
½ teaspoon thyme

Method:

Coat the chicken with olive oil.
In a small bowl, combine the 6 seasonings and rub over chicken.
Let sit at room temperature for 45 minutes before cooking.
Place chicken breast side down in the Air Fryer basket.  
Press Power button and set cooking time to 20 minutes at 360°.
When cooking time expires, turn the chicken over and repeat cooking time and temperature.
At end of cooking time, thermometer inserted into chicken should register 165°.
Let chicken rest for 10-15 minutes.
Serve

Enjoy!

  1. I was looking at this machine. Very cool that you're enjoying it. I look forward to hearing more about your adventures with it. Question: How does it smell inside the machine? Is there a plastic or die-off smell? We had that with our waffle makers so I'm curious about this machine.

    I LOVE the idea of baking potato wedges without oil.

    1. Hey, Ivy! It's great and there's no smell of plastic or anything from it. It makes a little noise but not as much as an exhaust fan over the stove. I really like it, it's easy to use and clean up is really easy and no splatter like in the oven or stove top. I'm making cod in it for dinner tonight. And potatoes are great in it!

    2. This is great to know. Thanks. We haven't decided yet which way we're going when we move things about in the kitchen yet, but I was looking at this same machine. Looks like a lot of good room inside, too.

      Thanks for your time, Pam.

  4. Dear Pam, This looks delicious!! I like the cornbread too. It is nice that you say it is easy to clean this as well. Sometimes gadgets are so difficult to clean and put together that you just store them away forever.

  23. Wow, the chicken looks amazing. I want to make this. I use Electric/radiant heat: No need for propane with an electric fryer! All you have to do is plug it in and the radiant heat penetrates the inner wall to cook the turkey. Although they do just plug into the wall, it’s still recommended that that most electric fryers be used outdoors.

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!




Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 



The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…



You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”



Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.


Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!


A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.
