    Chicken 65 prep steps 1&2
  • 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.
