Magic Chef Air Fryer **Review + Recipe**

As I have gotten older and more “seasoned” as a mother, I have accepted and owned the fact that cooking just isn’t my thing. I used to think that if I had more flexible after-work time I would enjoy preparing meals for my family. But you know what, this is not and has never been me. 


What I realized is that when I have more flexible after-work time, the last thing I want to do is cook. My free time is best enjoyed in the bathtub, outside watching the kids play, or doing any other activity besides being in the kitchen.


But we gotta eat, so sometimes I cannot help it...And, like everything else in my life that does not bring me joy, efficiency is king. Meals that are nutritiously minded, easy to put together, and quick to actually cook without me hovering are the best in my mind. 


So when I was asked to try and review the Magic Chef Air Fryer by NewAir I knew that I would be an instant fan. Air fryers are known for not only creating healthy and tasty alternatives to traditionally oil-fried foods, but also they are some of the most time efficient small appliances on the market. 





Over the holiday weekend, the kids and I decided to try our hand at one of the Magic Chef Cookbook recipes: Parmesan Zucchini Fries. 



Recipe Ingredients: 
1-2 small zucchinis 

⅛ cp mayonnaise (*we used egg instead)

½ cup panko bread crumbs 

¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Fresh cracked pepper to taste 



Directions: 

1. Slice zucchini into strips like French fries

2. Combine the bread crumbs, parmesan, and pepper into a shallow bowl

3. In another bowl, coat the zucchini strips with mayonnaise, then roll them into the bread crumb mixture

4. Bake spread out in small batches for 8-10 min each, making sure the fries are not touching in the basket to keep them crisp 


The zucchini fries were a hit! We dipped them in ranch or ketchup...YUM


*So what did I think about the air fryer? 
*I love the small footprint so that it doesn’t clutter the kitchen counter when in use 

*It can hold up to 5.6 quarts of food for serving the whole family - or just a hungry preteen boy 

*The digital touch screen is super easy to use and intuitive 

*The air conduction technology evenly AND quickly cooks tasty food every time 

*The food is so crispy!!
