Notes

Swaps. We made slow cooker lemon chicken. You can swap the lemon and seasoning and go with your favourite flavours. Such as making a taco one with taco seasoning or with cajun seasoning.
Double. If you want to crisp your baby potatoes, then double up the oil and seasonings for these to season again before going into the air fryer.
