Air Fryer Fish and Chips

Like many people, we like to get take-out on Fridays as a treat. Fish Fry, Pizza, Or even Chinese food is some of our go-to take-out foods.

Since the pandemic, we have been trying to cook at home more often not only did this save money but also a much healthier option. Using the air fryer you have no need to deep fry which will cut down on the oil needed to get that crispy crust everyone loves.
