  • 2 10-oz chicken breasts
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • Sprinkle the black pepper, chili powder, garlic powder and salt on both sides of the chicken breasts.
  • Lightly drizzle the chicken breasts with olive oil and massage in the oil and spices so that the chicken is well coated with both.
  • While you are preparing the chicken breasts, preheat the air fryer for 3-5 minutes at 360F.
  • When the chicken breasts are ready place them in the air fryer basket and cook for 10 minutes on each side for a total of 20 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken from the air fryer, place on a cutting board and loosely cover with foil. Let the chicken breast sit for 10-15 minutes.
  • Once the chicken is done resting, serve immediately or store in an airtight container to use it for weekly meal preps.

Crispy Bacon


  • Package of Bacon


  • Add a piece of uncooked bread underneath the air fryer basket, but inside the pressure cooker basket. This helps soak up the bacon grease as it drops from the Air Fryer pan.
  • Add each piece of bacon from the package into the air fryer basket.
  • Close air fryer lid and set the Ninja Foodi to AIR FRYER, 390 Degrees, and 11 minutes, then Start.
  • At the 5 minute mark, rearrange the bacon. Close the lid and let continue cooking.
  • Around the 9 minute mark, check the bacon for doneness. Crispy bacon may take between 11-12 minutes.

Spaghetti with Sauce


  • 16 ounces dry spaghetti noodles
  • salt, to taste
  • 4-1/2 cups water
  • 1 (25 oz.) jar spaghetti sauce


  • Break the dry spaghetti noodles into halves or thirds, so that they will easily fit into the Instant Pot. Add them to the pot in a crisscross manner, so that they won’t stick together and clump as they cook.
  • Add a teaspoon of salt at this point, too, so the noodles will have a little extra flavor as they cook.
  • Pour the water over the noodles, then pour the jar of spaghetti sauce on top of that, covering as much of the top layer of noodles as you can.
  • Secure the lid, and move the steam release valve to Seal. Use the Pressure Cook button on your machine to cook at high pressure for 3 minutes. It will take roughly 10-15 minutes to come to pressure, so when the floating valve in the lid pops up, that’s when the cooking countdown will begin.
  • When the cooking is complete, allow the pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes. Move the steam release valve to Vent to release the remaining pressure. When the floating valve in the lid drops, it’s safe to remove the lid.
  • Stir the spaghetti, mixing the sauce throughout evenly. Season to taste, and serve warm. Don’t forget the garlic bread.
