    What kind of air fryer do u use? Thank u Linda kraner

  • For those that don't have an air fryer and / or do not use cooking sprays, this recipe will still work in the oven or grill. This was one of my favorite meal prep methods when I was young and first starting out in life when I didn't have oodles of time to cook. Tasty, simple and quick!
