THIS RECIPE IS AIR FRYER-FRIENDLY
Simply reduce the cooking time and temperature on your air fryer as shown here.*
Set air fryer timer for half the cooking time of a conventional oven. Add extra time for doneness if needed.
Reduce regular oven temperature by 25° to 50° (not going below 350°) on your air fryer. If food is getting too dark, reduce by another 25°.
* Always follow manufacturer’s instructions.
Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with olive oil or non-stick spray. Toss the potatoes with half of the olive oil and half of the seasoning mix and spread in the baking dish; place in oven.
While the potatoes cook (without disturbing), toss the chicken in the remaining olive oil and seasoning mix and let sit. After 25 minutes, remove the potatoes from the oven and toss with the chicken.
Spread out evenly in the pan and return to the oven for another 20–25 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are crisp.
Sprinkle the potatoes and chicken evenly with the cheese, crumbled bacon, and scallions and bake another 5–6 minutes, until cheese is melted. Top with sour cream or ranch dressing and serve warm.
