Actifry Chicken

Firstly I'd like to thank everyone for all your lovely comments and well wishes. I get so excited when people leave comments on my little blog and look forward to reading them. I'm feeling much better now (I'm dressed in proper clothes not pjs... yeahhh) and will start catching up with everyone else's blogs again - I've missed reading about all your happenings :)

I thought I'd show you something else cooked in the actifry besides chips today. Last night's tea was some yummy 'fried' chicken drumsticks with some mash, sweetcorn and coleslaw.

I used some herbs and spices

Chicken drumsticks. Andrew prefers white meat, but enjoys these as they're so juicy and full of flavour, I prefer dark meat as I find it has more flavour, generally meat on the bone tends to be more flavoursome.

They were given a light coating before popping in the actifry.

Then just straight in, switch on and set the timer for 30 minutes, no other settings to worry about.

Couldn't be any simpler, and very moist, well cooked (so important with chicken) and full of flavour. Fried chicken, but healthily cooked with only a teaspoon of oil!

Take care


  1. Okay when am I invited over for dinner? And I'm glad you're feeling better, nothing worse than being down and feeling icky and then getting behind on everything!
    I'm going to have to get one of those little fryers!

  2. Okay I have to have to have to know what nithering means!!!

    1. Yorkshire folk would say I'm nithered - I'm really cold... brrrrrr x

  3. Yum yum! Sounds delicious! I need one of these xx

  4. Your dinner looks delish. So glad you are feeling better.

  5. There is nothing better than fried chicken and mashed potatoes! looks yummie....a new follower, shari

  6. The chicken looks delicious! It's making my mouth water as it's coming up to lunch time. Sorry you've been poorly - glad you're feeling better. Maggie xx

  7. Yum, that looks delicious. I often buy chicken thighs for stews or pies as the meat has so much more flavour and it's so tender. And I do love chicken drumsticks too.

  8. Now my lot would love that meal! I'm off to do some Actifry research ...

  9. Thanks for popping over to mine and becoming a "new" follower! I have reciprocated!

  10. Sorry to hear you've been ill, but so glad you're feeling better. There seems to be so many bugs flying around at the moment. Your meal looks delicious, I'm quite partial to a bit of fried chicken.

  11. I'm glad to hear that you are all on the mend now - it's an awful time of years for bugs and things isn't it?
    Your meal looks delicious - I love fried chicken and healthy fried chicken has got to be good :))

  12. Those look quite yummy! And bugs really suck at this time of year, got to be all wrapped up and cosy to keep warm!

  13. That looks absolutely delicious Cheryl. I had a chat with Sr P about getting an Actifry but he isn't totally convinced yet. I told him I had a good review about it (from you) but it seems a little bit more convincing is in order :-)

    keep well

    Amanda :-)

  14. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You can't beat fried looks delicious!

  15. Oh, I have missed that you was ill! I´m so glad you are feeling better now! Your chicken looks so delicious, I´m thinking to buy an Actifry too! I will see!
    Have a great day Cheryl!!

  16. I just bought a Family Size T-Fal Actifry and your fried chicken was the first thing we cooked in it. OMG!! AMAZING!!! I seriously couldn't believe, no oil, and it was that good. Thank you for the post or I wouldn't have made this for my family! Awesome!

  17. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. We just bought the Family-size TFal Actifry and our very first recipe was yours! OMG!! AMAZING!! I couldn't believe how totally amazing this was! It's the only fried chicken I've had since my childhood days when my grandmother cooked her chicken in crisco or drippings! LOL!!!
