Air-Fried Prawn Paste Chicken

Air-Fried Prawn Paste Chicken

For best results, marinade the chicken wings over night in the fridge for the chicken to fully absorb the marinade.


  • 300 grams mid-joint chicken wings (or drumlettes)
  • 2 tbsp olive or vegetable oil

Marinade (A)

You also need

  • Airfryer


  1. In a bowl, combine the marinade ingredients (A) until a paste is formed. Marinade chicken with the sauce for at least an hour or preferably overnight in the fridge.
  2. Just before deep-frying, add corn flour to the marinade chicken. Stir to coat evenly, shaking off excess flour on the chicken.
  3. Preheat air fryer at 180°C (356°F) for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, lightly brush chicken pieces with olive oil.
  4. Arrange chicken one layer on the fryer basket and slide the basket into the airfryer. Set timer and air fry for 8 minutes. Pull out the tray, use tongs to turn chicken pieces over, and set timer for another 7 minutes. Drain cooked chicken on paper towels before serving.

  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?

  9. Hello, thanks for sharing the recipe! AF wings looks great! Kindly advise if I can omit shao xin wine pls? Thanks!
