The latest kitchen gadget I have invested in is the Philips AirFryer. It “frys” without the grease!! And it’s been wonderful to use it. I have saved my money on cooking oil and best of all it’s healthy eating for the family. Not sure if this is available all over the world yet but for those who can get their hands on one…do so! If you love fried foods, it’s a good investment. Think about the french fries without all those grease!!!
Here’s a simple fried chicken recipe :
- 1 whole chicken (cut in halves, as the container of the airfryer is not able to it a whole chicken)
- 2 tbsp of spice salt (you can get this in any asian stores)
- Lemon juice
Marinate the chicken with the spice salt and a bit of lemon juice for 2 hours or more. Place one half of the chicken in the basket and cook for 30 mins at 200 degrees C. Check at 10 mins interval, shake the basket or move the chicken a little so that it won’t stick to the basket. If you like your skin to be really crispy, leave it longer.
For those who don’t have the air fryer, you can use the conventional oven or cut the chicken in bite sizes and deep fry them.
This dish goes well with fries and salads. I usually serve this with spaghetti for my boys.
