Using the Air Fryer.  i.e. Salt bake chicken using Air Fryer.

By now, most of the families will understand the benefits of using Philips Air Fryer, and hopefully you have it at home.

I guarantee it is VERY EASY TO COOK, and VERY TASTY to eat.  HaHaHaHa

(Of course, how much salt you want to put, it is based on experience.)

1.  We need chicken.  A piece of chicken breast meat.  Completely thawed.

2.  We need salt.  You can use all kind of salt.  I use the sea salt infused with seaweeds.  I can’t remember where do I buy this.  But the taste got seaweed taste.  🙂

3.  Pinch some salt and evenly distributed on the surface of the chicken.  Both sides.

4.  Use the baking paper to wrap the chicken.  YES.  That’s it.  Wrap the chicken that you just wipe some salt on the surface.  No need to marinate the chicken.

5.  Wrap it up.  I also use another layer of aluminium foil paper to wrap outside.

6.  That’s it.  Very simple right?  Pinch salt wipe both side of the chicken breast meat, and then wrap it up, double layers.

7.  Put the whole thing into the Air Fryer.

8.  We need to heat up 2 times.  First, heat up 160 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  After it is done, remove the aluminium foil paper, and then, put the chicken (wrapped inside the baking paper) back into the Air Fryer.  Second heating, heat up 180 degrees for 10 minutes.

9.  As you can see, after heating up for 2 times, about 35 minutes later.  The chicken is ready.

10.  You can see the juicy side of the chicken.  The texture feels like the 白斩鸡.  The chicken oil (salty) drop onto the baking paper.

19.  Put some Green Onions Ginger sauce there.  Some people likes to eat pure Salt Bake Chicken.  Some people do like to eat the salt bake chicken with green onions ginger sauce.

20.  The chicken taste really good.  Jay eat a lot, , my helper loves it.  Even Kay Kay also ate two big pieces.

So, when I say it is easy to cook it, I really mean it.  🙂

You can cook this for your kid when they schooling.  It is tasty because it is salty.

I will try to come up with some common way of using the Air Fryer to cook delicious meals ya!
