Thai Chicken Chop (Air-Fryer Recipe) 泰式鸡扒

It’s so easy to make chicken chop at home with the good kitchen helper – the air-fryer. My current goal is to create several versions of homemade chicken chops. The idea comes from my food explorer while dining out. I used to memorize the flavors of my liking, then experiment the cooking per my own way. So far, this has become my hobby which I can fill up my family’s tummies. Does it sound good? 

Happy Father's Day to all fathers!

Thai Chicken Chop (Air-Fryer Recipe) 泰式鸡扒 
Serves 2 

2 chicken thighs, deboned and fat discarded
potato flour

1 tbsp of light soy sauce
dashes of white pepper powder
4 shallots, peeled and chopped

Thai Sauce (mixed up everything): 
1 and a half tbsp of Thai chili sauce
1 tbsp of sugar
5 coves of shallots, peeled and sliced
1 calamansi, juiced
6 bird's eye chilies, chopped
salt to taste

1. Clean the chicken thighs and pat dry with kitchen towel. Marinate for 2 hours.
2. Drain the excess seasonings and coat the chicken thigh with a layer of potato flour.
3. Arrange the chicken thighs on the air-fryer pot with skin facing down. Air-fry it under 200 deg C for 10 minutes. Turn the chicken thighs to the other side. Air-fry for another 10 minutes under 180 deg C.
4. Remove from the air-fryer and top with the Thai Sauce. Serve with your favorite side dishes.

Air fryer bought, but still with my friend in Spore.
This chic chop is definitely healthier than pan fried or deep fried

This recipe looks very appetizing. I might try this along with my other recipe (ricette) that are mostly Italian.

This air fryer versatility is really tempting me! You transformed a normal pork chop to something so tasty with zingy flavours!

I don't have good kitchen helper. How? :P ..maybe just hv to pan-fry it?

I bought an air-fryer a month ago but it's grossly under-used. Seeing your chicken chop is truly inspiring.

Hi, I have a air fryer which has been with me for the past 3-4 months, but however, my expectations were sky high from all the food blogs on the things that the Air Fryer can do... somehow, maybe user problem, the chicken chops and beancurds and other fried dishes doesn't come out super yummy or look nice.

And frying fish with the air fryer is a big no no,right? Still go conventional kuali.

The air fryer is still taking a prime spot next to my microwave though... hoping for some successes.

Hi, I new to AF method. Do you air fry it with grill pan or just on the netting? Do you need to spray oil on the chicken before AF to get the crispness. Please advice. Thanks

Amy Lim, I fry it on the netting without spraying oil.

At the risk of sounding stupid, when you say remove excess fat do you mean take all the skin off of the chicken thighs etc? Thanks so much, can't wait to try your recipes!

Anonymous, it means to trim off the fat around the bone and meat area, but not to remove the skin.
