Units Scale
  • 2 cups diced, gold potatoes
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp. salt, divided
  • 1 tsp. pepper, divided
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 lb. green beans


  1. Toss the potatoes with the olive oil, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and 1 teaspoon of the pepper.
  2. Place the potatoes in the bottom of the air fryer tray and arrange a metal rack on top of them.
  3. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with the remaining salt and pepper and place them on top of the metal rack over the potatoes.
  4. Slide the tray into the air fryer and set the temperature to 380 F. Turn the timer to 15 minutes.
  5. After the 15 minutes is up, slide the tray out and arrange the green beans over top of the chicken.
  6. Slide the tray back into the air fryer and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes, or until the green beans are just tender. Remove the green beans and chicken from the air fryer.
  7. If desired, place the potatoes back in for 3-5 minutes if you like a crispier potato. Serve!


  • This recipe works best with air fryers that include or can operate with a metal rack inside of the tray.
