When we were still living in a “brick and mortar” home I used the broiler A LOT. That might have been one of the only reasons to start the oven. Even before living tiny a lot of our recipes where instant pot based. When we got the air fryer there was no reason to even START the oven. Especially on those hot summer days. We could simply use the Instant Pot and Air Fryer, and help keep our cooling bill down.
This recipe has been one that I’ve been working on for years. My wife has her own spin on it, and I think that’s the best part of this recipe. You can add or subtract spices and other ingredients that you don’t like.
This kiddos were not as happy with this dinner, probably because they were expecting chicken — ah, the joys of toddlers. They DID gobble up leftovers, so that is a plus! I gobbled up everything. It was just so dang delicious!
So, without any further babbling from me— enjoy!

Take a gander at the video above! They were so good I just dropped to my feet at one point. 😉
Also, the leftovers made a HUGE impact on TikTok (I know we are a bit old for that app, but my wife is obsessed) when we put them on top of fries.
