Air-Fried Prawn Paste Chicken

Prawn Paste Chicken (or more commonly known as Har Cheong Gai 虾酱鸡 locally), is one of the most popular recipes on Noob Cook. You can find the original recipe here which involves deep-frying. Many readers love this zi char delight, but for those who are put off by the idea of deep frying foods at home, they are hesitant to try the recipe at home.

Air-Fried Prawn Paste Chicken Recipe

Some readers have asked if it is possible to air-fry the wings instead, so I put the recipe to the test. Can an air fryer pull off a recipe with wet batter? The answer is yes, by making small adjustments to the original recipe. I consider the air-fried result great with additional benefits of lesser oil & hassle. This is definitely something I would do at home.

Philips Air Fryer

This experiment was cooked entirely in a sponsored Philips Avance XL Airfryer set (pictured above). Before this, I have been using the Philips Viva Airfryer since 2012 (purchased at my own expense). I bought it back then as it is perfect for my lifestyle – it is compact, cooks faster and cleans easier than an oven. The Avance XL is a great improvement over the first model I had with its bigger capacity, digital controls as well as improved pull-out tray & cord storage.

  1. Very good recipe. Healthy and doesn’t make my house oily. My family loves it. Thank you so much!

  2. Can I marinate today and freeze it? And cook on Sunday?

  3. Is the chicken crispy? Thanks!

  4. For air fryer still need to coat wth corn flour?

  5. Marinate the chicken mid-joints or wings with the prawn paste sauce and sugar and leave them to chill in the fridge overnight.

  6. 300g means how many wings, approximately ? No need for oyster or light soya sauce? Why is it needed for the deep fried recipe? Is shrimp paste very salty? Thanks

  7. Would you be able to share where and what type/brand of prawn/shrimp paste you use pls?

  8. The chicken has residue flour on them after air fry. It is not as crispy as I imagined. Any solution?
