It’s Monday, why does it feel like the weekend flew bye? Mondays are always busy. So for dinner on Mondays, I usually prepare a quick meal. This meal took less than 30 minutes.

Air Fryer Teriyaki Chicken with chicken fried rice. Topped with pineapple pico de gallo.  I made it a little fancy and I used the pineapple as bowl. This meal was a hit with the family. So yummy.
