  • 2 ½ teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • Garlic salt to taste
  • 2 ½ tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 lbs potatoes scrubbed and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 ½ lbs chicken breast cut into 1 inch cubes


  • Preheat Air Fryer to 380F / 190C.
  • Mix together Italian seasoning, smoked paprika, garlic salt and oil in a small mixing bowl.
  • Add cubed potatoes in a mixing bowl and add half of the seasoned oil and mix till well coated.
  • Add cubed chicken into a mixing bowl and add half of the seasoned oil and mix till well coated.
  • Add the potatoes into the air fryer basket and cook for 10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through cooking.
  • Then add in the chicken shake to mix and cook for 10-12 minutes.


Tips For Success And Variations

  • I recommend shaking the basket rather than mixing so that you don’t break the potatoes.
  • Do make sure to shake the basket during cooking so that everything cooks evely.
  • Make sure you cut the potatoes and chicken to the same size.  
  • These potatoes are not peeled – just wash and cube – really eaaaaaaasy.
  • If you want the potatoes crispy, then cook them for a few more minutes before adding in the chicken.
  • Use different seasoning to your taste like herbs like Cajun seasoning, creole seasoning, Greek seasoning, rosemary etc.
  • Add chili or chipotle etc for some heat.
  • Top with some bacon bits and chopped cilantro for an explosion of flavor.

Budget Friendly Tips

  • Add an extra 1/2 - 1 pound of potatoes to bulk it out (make sure that your air fryer basket or tray is big enough though.
  • You can also round this meal out by adding bell peppers and onions at the same time as the chicken.
  • Use chicken thigh meat which can be cheaper.
