Juicy Air Fryer Meatloaf Recipe

Air fryer meatloaf is one of the quickest methods to cook a delicious meal in minutes with no smell and mess.

I was, and still am, an Instant Pot fan; however, when I bought my air fryer, I became even lazier but with the same tasty and unique dishes.

The air fryer makes any of my recipes quick, juicy, and tender, with almost no smell. Today is all about my super tasty and fantastic meatloaf recipe made of chicken.

Air Fryer MeatloafMeatloaf is one of those dishes you can quickly assemble and cook for dinner if you want a more fancy and elegant table.

What I like most about meatloaves is that you can make them of any ground meat mixed with anything you have. Just add some greenies to make it lighter and veggies for healthiness, and your meatloaf will taste fabulous.

Today’s recipe is about good ground chicken meat, spices, veggies, parsley, and some Parmesan for saltiness and juiciness. Meatloaf is a simple and quick recipe to make any time of the day, or even ahead. You can mix everything and store it in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Air Fryer Meatloaf RecipeWe love meatloaves, and this is why I have more meatloaf recipes, but this is the first time I have made just chicken meat. First, I was a bit dubious if making it just from chicken ground meat, as this meat is too dry. But, to my surprise, the meatloaf turned out to be juicy, soft, tender, and not dry. I have a secret: adding some milk will make your meat soft and juicy.

You may be wondering: if I don’t have an air fryer, where can I make it that easy and simple?

SImply, you can cook it in an Instant Pot, bake in the oven, or crockpot.

There is always solvation when you want to please your family.
