Recipe Details

  • Serves: 3 people
  • Preparation Time: 20 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Recipe Ingredients

  • 400 grams - Chicken Cut into medium pieces [with or without bone]
  • 3 tbsp - Lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp - Salt
  • 1 tbsp - Black pepper
  • 3 tbsp - Tabasco Sauce
  • 2 tbsp - Olive Oil


1: First, wash the chicken pieces well in running water and keep them aside in a Bowl. Ensure that you drain all the water before moving on to step 2.

2: Next, add lemon juice, salt, black pepper and tabasco sauce to the chicken and mix all of this well. Keep this in the refrigerator for 4-5 hours for marination. This will ensure that flavors of lemon, pepper and salt sink in well.

3: Next, drain excess water that might have formed during marination and add 2 tbsp of Olive oil to the chicken. Mix well.

4: Preheat the Air Fryer for a minute or two at 160 degrees.

5: Brush the Air fryers basket with Olive oil so that the chicken does not stick to the basket. Next, move the chicken pieces to the basket and set the air fryer to 140 degrees for 7-8 minutes.

6: After the timer is off, remove the basket and turn the chicken pieces upside down. Now, set the Air Fryer to 180 degrees for another 8 minutes. That is it.

7: After the Air Fryer has cooled down, the chicken is ready to be served with any sauce of your choice. Mint sauce goes well with this Spicy Chicken dish.
