Try frozen chicken strips in the air fryer for a tasty and fast meal. My favorites are the breaded breast chicken strips, but there are also unbreaded strips if you prefer. With an air fryer, you can reheat them in less than 15 minutes without making a mess in your kitchen, leaving your kitchen cleaner and neater than ever.
