Does Southern Fried Chicken have to be deep fried? After this video, my answer is no! Wow, I can’t believe how crispy the Air Fryer made this chicken and how incredibly good it was! Dare I say this chicken would make a Southerner proud?? I think I dare! If you are looking for a healthy alternative to Southern Fried Chicken, you MUST try it in your air fryer.

Side note: The next couple weeks of videos will be in various locations as I’m going to be visiting the kitchen’s of my friends and family as we transition to our new house!
