For the seasoning:

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp cornflour for tenderising
  • 1 tsp Chinese five spice powder
  • 1 tsp ground white pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika powder
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp Shaoxing wine
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil

For the coating:

  • 70 g tapioca or potato flour
  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  1. Butterfly the chicken breasts to make it one bigger piece, or several smaller ones if preferred. Use a rolling pin to roll/flatten to tenderise the chicken.
  2. Mix all the seasoning together to make a loose paste and coat the chicken breasts. Marinate for 30 mins.
  3. Combine the coating ingredients and cover generously each chicken breast. Dust off any excess.
  4. Spray the air fryer basket with cooking oil, as well as brush each chicken breast on both sides with cooking oil.
  5. Select AIR FRY on the Vortex, and set the time to 15 minutes and temperature at 205ºC, and press start.
  6. When the Vortex has heated, add the chicken.
  7. Turn each piece over at 5 minute intervals, brushing over with more oil each time.
  8. When the cooking program has finished, check the chicken is cooked in the centre. If the chicken pieces are thick they may need an extra 2-3 minutes.
  9. Once cooked, allow to cool on a wire rack to crisp up.
