Air Fryer Chicken Parmesan

Air Fryer Chicken Parmesan

I love chicken parmesan. Since the weather was cold and nasty, I decided to make some marinara sauce as well. There’s nothing better than your own homemade sauce. I’m going to do another post about the simple marinara sauce I make. It takes a total of 1 and a half hours to make, but on with the meal.

I had gotten myself a Ninja Air Fryer for Christmas, I love it. It’s such an easy clean up too.
