    This is a super late post but you know... LIFE lol Anyway, Tuesday (07/06) was National Fried Chicken Day and you know my family and I had to join that bandwagon. To be honest, I don't remember the last time I made fried chicken in oil on the stove. I'm trying along with the family to make better choices on what we eat, and using the air fryer is a great choice. 

    I have mastered making some air fryer fried chicken and it's A1. Below, I will give you some quick steps on how to make these.

    First, you will need an air fryer. Mine was gifted to me by my husband about 3 years ago on my birthday. I believe he got it from Best Buy. I will find a similar one on Amazon and link it below. 

  Second, PLEASE clean your chicken. Use vinegar, lime, lemon, and boiling hot water. Remove the little hairs and fat... (Someone needed to know this and you're welcome). After that, you can season your chicken to your liking. I personally use homemade "Epis" (Haitian Marinade), creole seasoning, Lawry's seasoned salt, paprika, and any type of hot sauce.  I switch up my seasoning all the time. 

    ***I forgot to tell you, while you are cleaning and seasoning your chicken preheat the air fryer on 350 for 15 minutes. 

    Third, To make the cooking process faster, I suggest putting 5-6 Drummets in the air fryer to get thoroughly cooked. 

    Set your air fryer to 400 degrees for 40 minutes or less (keep checking to make sure it doesn't burn, air fryers temps may be different). This is me checking it after a few minutes of cooking. What I like about the air fryer is that, while the chicken is cooking, I can go and tackle other tasks. Once the air fryer is done, it will beep and that means your chicken is done!!!
