  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste for spice level)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For the Chicken Strips:

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning (plus extra for sprinkling)


For the Cajun Seasoning:

  • In a small bowl, combine smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, dried thyme, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create the Cajun seasoning.

For the Chicken Strips:

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a bowl, toss the chicken with olive oil, ensuring they are well coated.
  3. Sprinkle the Cajun seasoning over the chicken strips, tossing to coat them evenly with the spice mixture.
  4. Place the seasoned chicken in the EaZy MealZ Air fryer basket, ensuring they are not overcrowded for even cooking.
  5. Air fry for 12-15 minutes, flipping the strips halfway through, or until they are golden brown, crispy, and reach an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  6. Optional: Sprinkle additional Cajun seasoning over the chicken before serving for an extra kick.
  7. Remove from the EaZy MealZ Air fryer basket, let them rest for a few minutes, and serve hot.

  • 1 teaspoon paprika (optional, for extra flavor)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley or cilantro, chopped (optional, for garnish)


  • Preheat Your Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for about 5 minutes.

  • Season the Carrots:
    • In a mixing bowl, toss the carrot strips with olive oil to coat them evenly.
    • Add paprika (if using), garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Toss the carrots again to distribute the seasonings evenly.
  • Air Fry the Carrot Fries:
    • Place the seasoned carrot strips in the EaZy MealZ Non-Stick Air Fryer Cooper Crisper Basket  in a single layer. You may need to cook them in batches to avoid overcrowding.
