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.

Serves: 2-3

Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 15 mins


  • 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.

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

    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

      Yes the shrimp paste is very salty. You can try it first.
