Ninja Foodi Chicken Recipes

The Ninja Foodi all in one is an absolutely fabulous kitchen tool to create some of the best meals for your family. From chilis and soups, to tenders and thighs, whether you are pressure cooking or air frying, here are some of our favorite Ninja Foodi chicken recipes.

Ninja Foodi Chicken Tenders

Simple air fryer chicken tenders in a lemon herb chicken marinade, is a great basic chicken recipe that goes with a variety of side dishes.

Easy to make for lunch or dinner, these chicken tenders also can be piled on salads or added to pasta sides for a perfectly tender protein.

Benefits of air frying

  • Less oil means healthier chicken
  • Traditional oil methods can produce splattering oil, which can be dangerous. Air frying takes that out making it a much safer optional than regular methods.
  • Less chance of overcooking, leaving super moist chicken and nice crispy skin

Ninja Foodi Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Nothing like a dish wrapped in bacon to make it feel like a fancy dinner! Reader Adele said “This was excellent. I basted in melted butter before putting in air fryer and half way through. Thanks!!”

Tender meat stuffed with herb cream cheese and wrapped in bacon that crisps up perfectly, this chicken breast dinner is a welcome addition to a long week.

  • Because this dish keeps the flavors neutral, the only problem with a side dish is finding which one you want! Pairs great with everything.
  • We always add fresh herbs for color and flavor when serving dishes like chicken and bacon.

What Ninja Foodi do you recommend?

We have cooked in both the 6 quart and 8 quart all-in-one and find that the 6 quart one is easily to control for recipes. Because it does pressure cooking, air fryer, sautéing, and more, we love the Ninja Foodi. It keeps down too many appliances in the pantry.

Ninja Foodi Jalapeno Chicken

Thin chicken breast stuffed with an herb cream cheese and sliced jalapenos and then wrapped in bacon is a flavorful weeknight dish that feels fancy but is totally easy to make.

Ninja Foodi Cheesy Chicken Pasta

I absolutely live this dish, it’s always a hit at my house. I use cream of chicken instead of cream of mushroom. I also add more Rotel than it calls for.. serve it with cheesy garlic toast and a salad… it’s easy, fast and delicious….

Vicki S., reader who tried this recipe

Rotel, Velveeta, and pasta – what is there not to love! This super filling dish is a hearty bowl of shredded chicken pasta that the entire family will love. A full dinner in one, this dish doesn’t need a side dish (although serve one if you like!) to be complete.

Family Friendly

  • change out the Campbells cream soup
  • try with egg noodles or bowtie pasta
  • serve with a light veggie

  • Now chicken isn’t the only thing that the NF handles! We also love it for cooking salmon, turkey, ham, rice, potatoes, or even holiday favorites like Ninja Foodi Corn Casserole. Get all Ninja Foodi recipes here and search!
