Thousands of people have been left drooling over a 30-minute TikTok video showing how to make sweet and sticky fried chicken using an air fryer
In the video Phil films himself finding an air fryer in Kmart before buying the home appliance and starting his cook up.
He cuts 600grams of chicken into one-inch cubes to start and then marinates it in soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, five spice, garlic powder, sesame oil, an egg and corn flour.
He stirs these ingredients in a stainless steel bowl being careful to coat each piece well. He then sets the chicken in the fridge for 15 minutes.
He then makes the sticky sauce by mixing equal parts soy sauce, sugar, ketchup and honey with a splash of rice wine vinegar.
Phil then coats the chicken in cornflour and sprays it with oil.
He lets it cook until it is golden brown.
The recipe calls for 600 grams of chicken and can be made in just 30 minutes
When he takes it out it is time to combine the chicken and the sauce.
Phil takes a frying pan and browns off some garlic before adding the sauce. When it’s warm he adds the fried chicken.
He served the meal in a bowl and added some chopped spring onion.
‘Oh my goodness, when can I come for dinner?’ one woman asked on the video.
‘I am on the road I will see you soon,’ laughed another.
Others said the quick recipe was too hard.
