Ingredients:

2 large potatoes

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1.5 teaspoons seasoning salt

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions:

Wash potatoes and cut into wedges.

Place wedges in a large bowl and fill with cold water. Let sit for a minimum of 30 minutes.

Drain wedges and place on a plate to dry.

Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees.

Place wedges in dry bowl. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and garlic powder. Toss to coat.

1 pound boneless chicken breast

1/2 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions:

In one small bowl, mix together the flour, salt, and pepper.

In a second small bowl, whisk the oil and minced garlic.

In a third small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, parmesan, parsley, and paprika.

Cut the chicken into cubes or strips (depends on whether you wish to present nuggets or tenders).

Place each nugget into the flour mixture, then oil mixture, and finally the bread crumb mixture. Each nugget should be evenly coated.

Preheat the air fryer for 400 degrees

Place the nuggets in the air fryer and cook at 400 degrees for eight minutes.

Flip nuggets and cook for another ten minutes. NOTE: I like my nuggets crispy. Cook for less time if desired.
