How do you know when chicken is cooked and safe to eat?

The best way to make sure that chicken is cooked all the way through is to use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the chicken.

If the reading shows at least 165 degrees, the chicken is done cooking and is safe to eat.

How do I stop the chicken from drying out in the air fryer?

The best way to retain moisture in your chicken when cooking it in the air fryer is to cook it whole, and then cut it into pieces after it’s cooked!

Can you save leftover caesar salad?

You can, but I would eat it within 1 day for the best flavor and taste. This is why it’s also important to go light with the dressing when you’re adding it so that it won’t make the whole salad soggy.
