I’m not normally really a gadget person in the kitchen. But when it comes to making a full meal in 35 minutes, and I don’t have to turn on the oven, stovetop OR grill, count me in. This air fryer dinner that’s got chicken with potatoes and green beans is a cinch to make when I’m short on time and it’s a healthy option, too.

I recently discovered how to make chicken breasts in the air fryer and they’re wonderful. They have skin that’s a bit crisp, but the inside is flavorful and juicy. So I got to thinking, why couldn’t I make a full meal in the air fryer, all at once?

I love to make a meal in the Instant Pot, this chicken and rice dinner is great. So, I thought I’d start out with something simple and classic, with ingredients I always have on hand: chicken, potatoes, and green beans.

The trick to making this work is to layer each component. I like to start with the potatoes on the bottom. The juices from the chicken drip down and give them an incredible flavor.

The chicken is laid on top of a rack which lets the air circulate all around it, cooking it through. It’s important to use an air fryer rack that fits just inside of the air fryer.

Once you have everything layered inside of the air fryer, all you have to do is slide the tray in, and wait for the timer to ding. Dinner in a flash!
