I coated some diced rooster with egg after which popped it right into a bowl with the pancake combine, and stirred to coat. Subsequent I sprayed the air fryer basket (preheated at 375), added the rooster and cooked for 12-Quarter-hour, flipping as soon as. I made certain it was completed – all the time use a meat thermometer- and crispy.

Whereas the rooster was cooking, I made the sauce with Tamari, avocado oil, garlic, ginger, honey, hoisin sauce, and rice vinegar. It heated up on the range, I added the cooked rooster, stirred it to coat, and topped with chopped cashews and scallions. We loved the rooster on high of white rice (cooked within the Prompt Pot) and sautéed zucchini.
