【AirGo- Healthy popcorn chicken】
Popcorn chicken is a well-loved dish, but it is not so healthy. I used AirGo “Air Fryer” function to make a healthy version of this dish, very easy. Although compared to deep fried version, the outside is not so crispy but still crispy and the inside chicken meat is so tender and tasty. I could not stop eating them. Best to use organic chicken breast from Costco. To purchase go to: AirGo cooker, with a coupon of maomao25 for $25 off.
