  1. Wash the chicken breast and chop it into cubes as shown in the collage. Wash it thoroughly and transfer it to a bowl. Now to the chicken breast cubes add turmeric powder (never skip while cooking non veg specially sea food), salt, chilli powder, ginger garlic paste, soy sauce, corn flour, maida, pepper powder, 1 tbsp oil and few tbsps of water. Mix everything well so that the chicken is well coated in masala. Marinate the chicken for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  2. After 30 minutes to 1 hour preheat air fryer at 400F for 5 minutes. When the air fryer is preheated brush a tbsp oil on the baking rack (prevents chicken pieces from sticking) then place the chicken pieces one by one evenly without overcrowding. Do not place really big chunks as the inside might not get cooked fully in the mentioned time. Brush a tbsp oil over the chicken pieces as well. Now cook for 6 minutes. After 6 minutes you will notice that the chicken is evenly browned and cooked crisp. If you feel the inside is not cooked fully cook for 1 to 2 more minutes and it should be perfect. Remove the chicken pieces from air fryer and keep it aside.
