Air Fryer Fried Chicen by Larry Andersen

Air Fryer

"Fried Chicken"

Many nutrition websites recommend about pound, or 4-ounces of breaded fried chicken as a serving size. I have noticed that many of the large chicken breast halves available today are about one pound in weight. When quartered one breast makes four recommended servings. The advantages of using the air fryer are that it adds little to the kitchen heat, cooking time is rather short, and clean up is much simpler and easier compared to traditional pots and pans. Without spritzing the chicken and cooking pan with oil the chicken is just hot air baked. It will take some practice to learn just how much oil to use.
