Grilled Pork Chops

Grilled Pork Chops

Not only that, you are going to love these flavorful grilled pork chops, but I can promise you will make them all the time.


Grilled Pork Chops

 

Now, you will need any kind of grill to make them, of course. However, you can use your air fryer as well; 400F for 25-30 minutes depending on your preferences.

 

I love my pork chops well done. Also, I like bits of burned pieces around the bone and meat in the middle tender. I think that’s my family preference as well. We eat this all summer long.

 

Sometimes I make extra so we could have it during the week. They are just amazing to mix with rice. I usually eat it cauliflower rice since I am most of the time eating low-carb.

Grilled Pork Chops

 

I just cannot believe that I’ve never posted this recipe before. With ten years of blogging, sometimes we ignore the simplest recipes. This one does not require too much work or to have culinary school, but it is delicious, and I am sure you will enjoy it also.

 

Grilling is my jam. I just love grilled food and could eat it every single day. What is your favorite food from the grill? I have so many, but definitely, burgers and ribs are at the top two, but I also love, love grilled fish.

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

Air Fryer Whole Chicken is so easy, and everyone in my house loves it. My favorite kitchen toy is an air fryer by far. As soon as we got it I was in love with it.

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

A year later we got another one. It is bigger with more settings such as baking, toasting and broiling together along with the initial air fryer function.

Now, this is not an air fryer review of any kind, but I really like this one in regards to how many functions it has.

However, I wouldn’t get this one again just because it is a bit too loud compared to my old one.

I’ve been wanting to make a whole chicken for a while now and since this air fryer is big enough, the chicken, that is around 4 pounds, fits easily.

So after marinating the chicken overnight in the fridge I finally had a chance to make it.

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

It took me around an hour and a half, turning two times around to get that crispy skin. It was worth it.

To be honest, I thought that it will be done much faster but at the same time, I didn’t want to risk cooking it at high temperatures.

It was low and slow, in a way, although for the first 30 minutes I air-fried it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, then a for an hour it was cooked at 375 degrees.

This all depends on how big your chicken is. Make sure that the internal temperature is at least 165 degrees.

You must poke your meat thermometer at the thickest part of the chicken so it can read the most accurate temperature.

Recipe
Yield: Makes 1 Chicken, Serves 4 to 6

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Additional Time to Marinade: 12 hours
Total Time: 13 hours 35 minutes

Air Fryer Whole Chicken is so easy, and everyone loves it. My favorite kitchen toy is an air fryer by far. As soon as we got it I was in love with it.

Ingredients

  • 1 chicken, 3 lb to 5 lb (1.3kg to 2.2kg)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter

Instructions

  1. Place the whole chicken in the large pot or a bowl (You can also use an extra-large ziplock bag to marinate). Remove the chicken giblets. Rinse the chicken inside and out. Remove any excess fat and leftover pin feathers and pat the outside dry.
  2. On the side mix olive oil, lemon juice, herbs, salt, and pepper then rub all over the chicken. under the skin, inside and all around. Close it or cover it and place it in the fridge for 10 to 12 hours, or overnight.
  3. You can roast this in the oven for 45 to 50 minutes at 375°F, but today we gonna use air-fryer.
  4. Take the chicken out of the marinade and add butter under the skin and rub if possible all around the chicken.
  5. Air fry for 30 minutes at 350°F with back down and breast up, then turn it around and cook for 30 minutes with the breast down so the back could get a nice golden color as well at 375°F.
  6. After that turn, it again allows it to air-fry for an additional 30 minutes also at 375°F. If your chicken is bigger like 5 pounds it might take up to 40 additional minutes.

The cooking time depends a) on your air fryer and b) on the size of the chicken. Always use a meat thermometer to detriment if the chicken is cooked through. The safe internal temperature for cooked chicken is 165° Fahrenheit (75° Celsius). When you're cooking a whole bird, it should be inserted into the thickest part of the thigh but not touching bone.

I feel like this is the best invention ever. To be perfectly honest with you all, I was one of those skeptical people. I used a conventional oven in the past and loved it.

However, in the case of air fryer, we are talking about a kitchen gadget that is similar to the conventional oven yet so different. Absolutely amazing!

With that being said, I might be just a bit in love with my air fryer. We have been using it literally every single day since my husband decided to surprise me.

Some things we made are pizza, bacon, boiled eggs, fish, fries, wings as well as fish sticks, burgers, etc. Yes, we are killing it here with the air fryer.

My Anna tested making cookies and somewhat healthy energy bars in the air fryer. Even biscuits came out sort of tasty. Okay, I might be just a little excited so I keep blabbering but I am being honest.

Air Fryer Baby Back Ribs

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

An easy and delicious recipe for Airfryer Baby Back Ribs with sauteed cabbage.

Ingredients

  • 1 rack of baby back ribs, cut ribs into sections
  • 1 tbsp. Liquid Smoke
  • 1 tbsp. Oil
  • Seasoning:
  •  2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Chili powder
  •  1 teaspoon Onion powder
  •  ½ teaspoon Garlic powder
  •  ½ teaspoon Brown Sugar (add low carb sugar if you are keto such as Truvia Brown Sugar Blend)

Instructions

  1. Pat the ribs dry with kitchen paper towel then rub all over oil and liquid smoke.
  2. Mix all the ingredients for seasoning together. Season the ribs with the spices.
  3. Cut the rack of ribs into sections 4-5 ribs to fit the air fryer.
  4. Cook the ribs in the air fryer for 20 to 40 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on the rib thickens as well as your air fryer.
  5. After the ribs are done, you may brush some BBQ sauce and pop in the air fryer for 5 more minutes, but it is not necessary. I like brushing just the leftover drippings for more flavorful ribs.
    If you do not want to add BBQ sauce then just allow the ribs to rest for about 10 min so the juices could go back.

Notes

You can make this Low carb and Keto friendly just by switching a few things. For example, adding low carb sugar. Yes, you may add regular brown sugar as well. It is all about meeting your diet. We are doing low carb so that is why I mention that.

My AIR FRYER is 6 QT

Also, you can serve it with potatoes, cauliflower or sauteed cabbage. It is very simple serving it with cabbage.
