Air WINGS

How can one not love the essence of a good wing? From hot to buffalo to lemon pepper to barbecue + all cooking methods in between from baked, to deep fried with breading to deep fried without breading, to grilled and finally the subject of this article – AIR FRIED! The new kid on the block.

Those of you that have been following our posts know that we’re not big on measuring exact amounts because we like to give you the freedom of seasoning to your own taste liking. This is especially in the case of non-baked foods. This being one of them.


Marinade

Lets start with the main ingredient – WINGS! In this recipe we started with a package of cleaned organic wings from Costco (roughly 12 pieces mixed both drums + flats as separate pieces). In a small squeeze bottle, we mixed half yellow mustard half pickle juice and coated the basic seasoning wings with the mustard mixture.

Season

By basic seasoning we mean season the wings (to taste) with basic ingredients like garlic + onion powder, blk + red pepper, salt of choice + paprika. Top with the mustard/pickle mixture and gently combine til fully covered. Put in fridge and let marinate (ideally overnight but), at least a couple of hours.

Combine

In a separate bowl mix the the ingredients for the batter. Even amounts of the following will do (again not measuring anything): flour of choice, tapioca starch, generic fish fry mix or plain cornmeal into a medium ziplock. Add marinaded room temperature wings to the bag in thirds to effectively coat.

Remove coated wings from ziplock and place on a flat plate. Spray tops with avocado oil and gently place oiled side down on parchment-lined air fryer – not stacking them. When all wings are in fryer (oiled-side down), spray tops with oil and cook.


Cook

Cooking time and temps may vary per air fryer. We cooked these at 350-400 degrees for a total of 25 mins total (carefully turning halfway through). Monitor and discontinue cooking when wings are at the desired crispness.


Meatball Love!

Love our variations on meatballs! These protein rich delights are so quick + easy to make in a crunch and so freaking good. Make a simple meal like topping them with micro-greens and placing them on a plated smeared with pesto for flavor. We’ve included the nutrition label below as well. Don’t be so rigid tho. The fun in making meatballs is being able to sort of eyeball things.

Ingredients:

• 1 lb ground chicken
• 1 lb ground pork
• 2 tbsp greek yogurt
• 2 tbsp olive oil
• 2 medium eggs
• 1/4 cup walnuts (or breadcrumbs)
• 1 tbsp garlic powder
• 1 tsp salt
• 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Shredded Chicken Made Easy

I love shredded chicken for the ease, versatility and taste of it. 

This recipe is easy:

Bring a boiler of water to a boil and reduce to medium. Placed thawd, uncooked chicken breast in water for 30 mins. Shred with a simple mixer (shown). 

This simple recipe allows you to adapt the chicken in many different ways during the week to eliminate boredom. My favorites are: chicken soft tacos, pesto chicken, curry chicken and as a topping on something like a pizza. Eat with something like rice or soba noodles. Enjoy!!!
