We also have another recipe using the Air Fryer. It has become one of those meals that we enjoy eating because it’s quick, easy and tasty to make. Air Fryer crispy Chicken wings. Yum!! all the juice and seasoning are coated onto the chicken wings before going into the Air Fryer. They are just delicious with so much flavor.

There is always a moment in our day that we think about what are we going to eat for dinner! Especially when we are racing around the house doing laundry, cleaning up or simple doing a painting activity with the kids. There is always so much to do but so little time. That is where a think having an Air Fryer comes in handy. 

Let the ribs soak in a seasoning for an hour at room temperature. I recommend doing this because all the flavours get into the meat and the results are succulent. While the ribs are in the Air Fryer, open it once or twice to turn them over. The Air Fryer may not be big enough for all the ribs at one time, so you may need to repeat the process, but while the second batch is in the Air Fryer you can always enjoy eating the first batch while they are hot.

When the first batch is done cooking, I usually toss in the Air Fryer some crispy  potato fries. It takes about 20 minutes to bake and they are so delicious and crispy. I do go back and toss them around a few times, to not stick on the rack.

Air Fryer Ribs are perfect for any night of the week! They are incredibly tender and they need a very short time to cook.

In 45 minutes, the ribs become so juicy and tender with so much flavor, you will for sure enjoy as much as we do!
