A delish meal that has it all and will take you less than 25 mins to make!

Cathy Yoder's Hibachi Chicken and Vegetables

Why it's on our list

When we had Cathy Yoder on the show S2, Ep 13 The Queen of The Air Fryer, Cathy Yoder, to talk about her Shempire neither of us had ever used an air fryer and we thought it was just for french fries or other fried food. Cathy really opened up our eyes to all of the possibilities with this cooking device! Cathy's Hibachi Style Chicken with Yum Yum Sauce is one of her favorites and very special since she made it for her mom before her passing two years ago.

This dish has it all! Protein, veggies and a ton of flavor. Best of all it's super easy and fast! Serve with rice or as a stand alone meal.
