Air Fryer Chicken Tenders and Fries

The Benefits of Using an Air Fryer

The main benefit of using an air fryer over frying in oil can reduce the calories in your food by 70-80 percent. There is also a lot less fat when using this method. Oil frying your food may also lead to health problems like heart disease and diabetes.

An air fryer is usually egg-shaped. Plenty of your favorite food items can be cooked with one. Once your food is placed in the air fryer, heated air surrounds it, cooking the outside first for crispiness and it keeps the inside soft. There is a removable container at the bottom of the air fryer which catches grease that drops. Air fryers are not only good for health reasons, but for taste as well. 

This recipe is a simple yet tasty and healthier way to eat an American favorite, fried chicken strips and french fries.
