40 delicious and easy Ninja air fryer recipes that can be made by beginner cooks and those who love to eat.
I like to call our Ninja Foodi the appliance of all appliances. It has pressure cooking, air frying, and even more options than I can count.
While I am obsessed with air frying, I just HAD to put together a collection of Ninja Foodi Air Fryer recipes from breakfast to dessert that work perfectly in your ninja appliance.
This list includes everything from breakfast to lunch, dinner, dessert, and beyond. Basically anything you would want to cook in the air fryer CAN be cooked in the Ninja!
Do Normal Air Fryer Recipes Work in the Ninja Air Fryer?
Yes! I’ve tested on multiple air fryer recipes in my Ninja Foodi air fryer and most of them work flawlessly in the Ninja air fryer except for few exceptions.
Labeled as Ninja: These are recipes made and tested solely for the Ninja Foodi air fryer. These work in Ninja appliances, including the Ninja Foodi Grill. Basically, if you have a ninja air fryer of any model, they will work.
Labled as Air Fryer: These are regular air fryer recipes that work amazing in the Ninja air fryer. While their directions don’t have Ninja in specific, you can follow the same recipe and choose the “Air Fry” or “Air Crisp” option on your air fryer.
Use your Ninja Foodi to cook up some baked potatoes instead of using the oven. The Air Fryer is great for cutting back on the cook time compared to oven-roasting. Season the outside with a little oil + salt and top with some butter for a perfect dinner side!
Pop some pre-made or store bought pizza dough into your Ninja Foodi Air Fryer for a super quick lunch or dinner. Personalize your own pizza with your favorite toppings like pepperoni, sausage, or mushrooms.
Delicious Ninja Air Fryer recipes that can be made in the Ninja Foodi, Ninja Foodi grill, or any Ninja air fryer appliance, including these yummy chicken thighs.
Prep Time5 minutes
Cook Time12 minutes
Total Time17 minutes
4 boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
Preheat your air fryer to 375 degrees on Air Crisp.
Season the chicken by rubbing the brown sugar, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper all over the chicken thighs.
Place the chicken in the Ninja air fryer in a single layer and cook for about 10 minutes, flipping the chicken thighs halfway through cooking.
Remove the chicken from the base and baste the chicken with BBQ sauce on both sides. Return the chicken to the basket and cook on Air Crisp for another 2 to 4 minutes or until chicken reaches 165 degrees F internally.
