Can you dehydrate chicken in an air fryer?

The air fryer is a fairly new kitchen appliance and it’s getting more popular by the day. It claims to be an easy to use, healthy replacement for fried foods.

Today we’re going to focus on how you can dehydrate chicken in your air fryer which is an excellent way of preserving meat and making some culinary masterpieces like beef jerky – which is a personal favorite of mine!

Can You Dehydrate Chicken In An Air Fryer?

While no detailed studies have been performed on this matter, I think we could safely conclude that chicken dehydrates much better than any other type of meat, with turkey probably being the runner up. Boneless chicken is low in fat content and makes perfect dehydrator/air fryer meat since the fat melts away as it cooks.

If you’ve ever tried to make beef jerky in your dehydrator, you know that it requires a lot of marinating time to soften up and break down the muscle fibers. Chicken breast though, doesn’t need any help with that – you can add salt and pepper to taste and dehydrate/air fry until done! I use a convection air fryer by Philips , but a regular one should do just fine too. Just make sure there’s room for the meat since I doubt it would fit more than one chicken breast at any given time (unless they’re really thin). Anyway, if you have no plans on making turkey jerky anytime soon, then go for chicken instead!

Ingredients

– boneless chicken breast (as many as you can fit)

– salt and pepper to taste (optional)

Steps: 1. Heat up the air fryer / dehydrator to 165 degrees Fahrenheit 2. Add marinade of your choice – I usually use soy sauce but you can do a dry rub instead 3. Coat each piece of chicken in the marinate 4. Place meat on nonstick mesh trays, ensuring that there is some space between each piece 5. Dehydrate for about 4 hours or until done 6. Enjoy!
