Air-fried chicken cutlet served with lemon sauce and rice.
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • corn flour for coating the chicken thighs
  • 1-2 tablespoons oil (for brushing on the chicken thighs)
Marinade for the chicken:
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chicken marinade
  • black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon hua diao jiu
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
Lemon Sauce:
  • Rind of half a lemon
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 4-6 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • corn flour slurry (corn flour + water)
  1. Marinate chicken thighs with marinade ingredients, preferably overnight.
  2. Preheat the airfryer to 200 degC.
  3. Remove the chicken thighs from the marinade and coat with cornflour. Brush a little oil on the chicken.
  4. Airfry at 200degC for 10 min (skin side down), then flip the chicken thighs, brush with a little oil and airfry at 180degC for 10min.
  5. While the chicken is being air-fried, prepare the lemon sauce - combine all the ingredients (except corn flour slurry) in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Adjust according to your own preferred taste then add in cornflour slurry to thicken the sauce.
  6. Serve the chicken cutlet with rice, preferred vegetables and the lemon sauce.
The chicken cutlet was so good that it wasn't enough for us (2 adults + 2 children), so I'd have to increase the number of chicken thighs used in future.
