Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound boneless chicken breast or thighs – cut into 1-inch pieces 
  • 1 cup chopped zucchini – cut into 1-inch half moons
  • 1 cup chopped bell peppers – cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1.5 cups chopped baby Bella mushrooms
  • 1 cup chopped purple onion – cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 

Instructions

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F. 
  2. Add the chicken and vegetables to a large mixing bowl
  3. Mix up the garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper in a separate small mixing bowl
  4. Pour the oil over the veggies and chicken and toss to coat everything in the oil. Then pour the spice blend over everything and toss well to coat. 
  5. Spray the air fryer basket with olive oil spray and then working in batches add half of the chicken and vegetable mixture to the bottom of the air fryer basket in an even layer.  It is okay if some of the chicken and veggies are overlapping. 
  6. Close the air fryer and cook for 10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through the cooking time. Continue until you have cooked all of the chicken and vegetables. You will know the chicken is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. 
  7. Remove and serve hot, topped with dried or fresh parsley and a squeeze of lemon if desired.

Notes

  • Veggies: you can use any quick-cooking veggies you like in this recipe. Some possible variations are chopped broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, or green beans. Note: If you would like to add potatoes then season and cook them in the air fryer for 10 minutes before you add the rest of the chicken and veggies. 
  • Seasoning: use different seasonings such as taco seasoning, cajun seasoning, basil, oregano, cumin, or paprika. Note: If you are using a seasoning blend then you may need to adjust the salt in this recipe. 
  • Storing: you can store the cooked chicken and vegetables in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. 
  • Reheating: easily reheat portions in the microwave until warmed through or in the air fryer at 350 degrees F for 3-5 minutes.
