Clean the chicken thoroughly, and marinate with all the ingredients listed under marination for at least half an hour.
Brush the wired base of the air fryer basket with oil. Spread the chicken pieces in the basket and set the temperature to 180°C.
Let the chicken cook for 6 minutes. After 3 minutes, shake the air fryer basket or move the chicken pieces, using a blunt knife or spoon. This releases the chicken pieces from the base.
If you do not have an air fryer, go ahead and deep fry or shallow fry the chicken pieces. Alternately, you can even roast them with a little oil in a skillet.
After 6 minutes, transfer the chicken from the air fryer to a plate.
Next, take a skillet and add oil to it. Once it gets heated up add the tempering items one by one. Fry for a second and add the cooked chicken fillets to it. Saute so that the chicken pieces are fully coated with the tempering.
Sprinkle a handful of water if it seems to dry out before coating the chicken pieces.
Transfer to a serving dish and serve with lemon wedges and onion rings.
