Lemon Rosemary Chicken Using Airfryer

August 23, 2015 2 Comments A+ a-

The family had been commenting about how I keep using the airfryer to bake cakes and cookies, but I seldom use it for the "usual" purpose of cooking meats. One day on my way to work, I came across a really appetizing photo while scrolling through my Facebook:

After going through the "comments" with the recipe, I thought to myself: the ingredients are healthy, and the lemon and rosemary would give a nice tangy twist to the chicken. Looks and sounds yummy!

I finally managed to try out the recipe myself earlier this week, and I have to say that baking lemon rosemary chicken using the airfryer is one of the fastest dishes I have ever cooked. Serve this with bread/ rice and vegetables and it makes a quick and easy meal! The family especially loved the rosemary aroma, something uniquely different from the way we usually cook our chicken Oriental-style. Below is my slightly-adapted version of the original recipe (with permission from Amy Chai). Enjoy!

Lemon Rosemary Chicken Using Airfryer

Serves 2 persons

(A) For marinating the chicken
350g chicken 
1 tsp ginger, minced 
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp olive oil (else, you can use any other type of oil)

(B) For the sauce
1/2 lemon, cut in wedges with skin 
15g fresh rosemary,  chopped (available at NTUC Finest)
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp oyster sauce

1) Marinate ingredients in (A) together for at least 30 min. Chill in refrigerator while marinating.

Prepare the marination ingredients
Pour over the chicken and marinate for 30 min.

2) After 30 min, preheat airfryer 200 degrees for 3 min. 

3) Transfer the chicken (with the marinates) into a baking pan. Bake in airfryer at 200 degrees for 6 min. 

4) Meanwhile, prepare the sauces. Mix ingredients in (B) except the lemon wedges together.

5) Pour ingredients in Step #4 over the half-baked chicken. Spread the lemon wedges evenly in the pan and squeeze. The lemon juice and zest will brighten the flavour of the chicken while tenderizing it.

6) Continue to bake in airfryer at 200 degrees for another 13 min, turning the chicken pieces halfway to ensure that each piece is evenly browned. You are now ready to serve. 

If you are using Philips' baking tray, just remove it and serve. Enjoy!

If you don't have rosemary in your kitchen, feel free to go without!

wow! very nice post. Great post! Definitely, it is merely a swift breakdown of air flow fryers that has concluded that preparing food casino chips in a very low-fat air flow fryer isn't going to develop casino chips that will taste just like deep melted types. It lets you do suggest on the other hand likely really the closest thing you can develop and so are of course much healthier
