Tefal Actifry Chicken with Pineapple

Prices updated - Monday 15th October 2018


Another busy day in our house, our little boy has tennis afterschool and our daughter gymnastics at 7pm. Daddy does football at some crazy time later in the evening. I become taxi Mum and dash around the county picking up and dropping off. Dinner is again usually a timely affair as we need to be out the door having digested dinner by 6.40 in time for gymnastics.

Tonight I had some chicken which I decided to turn into a lovely chicken with pineapple dish which I hoped the children would enjoy as well.


I think I need to buy a Hot Air Fryer cook book. More to work out timings of the cooking but in the meantime I’ve been onto the Tefal website and looked at a recipe they advertise. Although I soon discovered they’d listed ingredients not used and used ingredients not listed. How difficult is it to list the correct ingredients Tefal, come on you’ve supposed to have tested these!

Here is the recipe I eventually used, and adjusted to work!

Chicken with Pineapple

(TAS – the Tefal Actifry Spoon) which ships with the machine.

  • 600g of boneless chicken breasts cut into thin strips
  • 1 TAS of Cornflour plus some extra to coat the chicken
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 TAS of Olive oil
  • ½ TAS of ginger
  • ½ TAS of mild curry powered
  • 2 TAS Soy sauce
  • Tin of chopped pineapple drained
  • Water 250ml

Mix salt and pepper in a large bowl and lightly coat the chicken strip.

Place chicken in ActiFry and drizzle the oil over the chicken. Cook for 5 minutes.

Mix the ginger, curry powder and pineapple pieces together in a bowl, stop the ActiFry and add the mixture to the chicken. Leave for a few minutes to soak flavours into the chicken. Then add the Soy sauce and water.


Finally mix 1 Tablespoon of cornflour to the reserved pineapple juice and add this to your ActiFry.  Stir into the chicken and cook for a further 5 minutes or until the chicken is well cooked and piping hot.

The recipe calls for 250ml of water, I didn’t use all of this, so decide what you need to add. The cornflour does make the mixture thick. So depending on how much cornflour was on your chicken to start with, you may need some or all of the water to give you the consistence you need.

We served it with some broccoli and rice.

I think we might try this in warm wraps as well which the children really love!
