For the Chicken Fry

For Finishing


  • Make the Chicken Fry: Using a fork, pierce the chicken well all over to allow the marinade to penetrate.
  • In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients and allow the chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 24 hours.
  • Place chicken and vegetables into the air fryer basket. Spray the chicken and onion with some vegetable oil.
  • Set your air fryer to 360F for 15 minutes. Half way through, remove the basket, spray the chicken with more vegetable oil, and shake it about.
  • At the end of the cook time, use a meat thermometer, ensure your chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165F.
  • Remove the chicken and vegetables to a serving tray.
