Taiwaness Popcorn Chicken


    AirGo Function: Air fry

    • Medium




    This is very famous Taiwaness street food which using a lot oil to deep fry the chicken. crispy out side and juicy inside, very addictive. I was craving for Taiwanese popcorn chicken, but I also want it be healthy, and using less oil.

    I decided to make them in the air fry, the best part of using AirGo air fry which you do not need basket, with the conductive heat its go through the chicken inside and out very well. I tried couple times with different temperatures and time,  finally had good results. and I am glad to share with you all here.

    with Basil I picked some from my little garden which not growing well yet, but with the receipt you can use about hand full basil which able to lay on the chicken evenly, it will turn to crispy and goes very well with chicken.




    Clean and dry chicken thigh, cut into cube size.
    Marinate with soy sauce, salt, white pepper corn powder, garlic, and sugar for over 20 mins or more.

    Prepare a ziploc bag add all purpose flour, corn starch, black pepper and salt, mix well.
    add marinated chicken into ziploc bag, close the bag and shake until chicken has been covered.

    take it out and lay on plates evenly.



    Preheat Air fry function for 400f 20min

    After preheat and coat the pan with 1 tbs oil and lay chicken into the pan, then pray some oil on the top of the chicken, cover the lid until LED showed flip then cook until the times out.

    coat basil with some oil lay top of the chicken cook for 4 mins , it will release the aroma. this step is optional.
