You guys know I’ve been OBSESSED with my Air Fryer! I use it every single day because it cuts out the fat but keeps EVERY bit of delicious flavor. This lemon chicken uses homemade preserved lemons which are super easy to make, they last forever, and they add tons of bright flavor to just about everything!

Just like the whole roasted chicken and the crispy french fries, you just throw it all into the air fryer and you have dinner ready to serve without ever turning on your oven and heating up the kitchen!

What have you been making in your air fryer?!
