The first few meals I made in my air fryer were all variations on a theme: chicken nuggets and french-fried potatoes. While undoubtedly delicious, I have come to rely on my air fryer for a much greater variety of groceries. This mini-convection oven saved me from turning on the oven in the summer and I’m still relying on it as the seasons turn. That’s why this week’s Power Hour meal prep plan is all about dinners from the air fryer. I’ll walk you through the planning, shopping, prep, and cooking for a week’s worth of easy air fryer dinners from chicken Parm to falafel with tahini sauce.

This shopping list contains everything you will need to prepare five easy air fryer dinners (plus a few side dishes!). It assumes cooking basics like olive oil, salt, and pepper are already on hand, so check your stocks before heading to the store. Additionally, compare this list to the contents of your pantry, fridge, and freezer to avoid buying ingredients that you already have on hand. In addition to the ingredients for recipes in the plan, pick up a few bagged salads or steam-in-bag frozen vegetables to round out the meals.
