Try this Nyonya Style Oven-fried Chicken and let me know if it works:

To a half cup (125 gr) of Paniermehl (dried breadcrumbs) add a half teaspoon of each

powdered coriander
powdered cumin
powdered red chilli
powdered cardamom
garlic granules (optional)
salt n pepper to taste

Roll one-inch pieces of chicken breast meat (or chicken wings and drumsticks if you prefer) in coconut milk (or mayo/oil/yoghurt) and then in the spiced breadcrumb mix.

I'd normally stick it in the oven at 185 C for 25-30 minutes (drumsticks and thighs would require at least 45 minutes).
Argus, Thank You !,this recipe worked out great !

From left to right :



Chicken in egg/flour dipping with spiced crumb mix, Chicken in Oil dipping and spiced crumb mix, Chicken in mayonaise with spiced crumb mix.

I followed your guidelines, but double dipped and double coated them to be sure the coating would stick, as the Actifry has a rotating arm.
You can however cook it without the rotating arm also,but didn't try that yet with coated food.

After coating, i sprayed some oil into the actifry directly and a bit over the coating, so all would stick and get a nice golden crust.

After 15 minutes in the Actifry on a constant flow of 170C (338F) ,they came out cooked to perfection.



Surprisingly the one with mayo was great, very moist and succulent.
The flour/egg mixed one with crumbs was on the heavy side but still good.
The one coated with oil and crumbs was ok, but the crumbs did not stick as well to the meat as they did with the other 2.

Other than that, great party food It is better to slice them up in smaller pieces,as a full chicken breast would not fit in to it without curling up.
Slices/strips of it ,or even nugget size are fine, they don't change shape as they clear the sides and hight.

Thanks again for the lovely recipe Argus !

Re: The Actifry ,Recipes and more

Fantastic, Joey. You are a true scientist in the kitchen.

Forget about KFC. Here's JAC (Joey Actifried Chicken)!

Now to get a tandoori chicken flavour, you can use yoghurt for the coating.but flavour the breadcrumbs with turmeric powder, a bit more cumin and chilli powder, plus coriander, cardamom and ginger. Basically garam masala if you have it. Paprika for the redness (optional).

Holy moly!

There is hope yet for Pandan Chicken. Mom's always in denial when it comes to her cholesterol level

Is it high-maintenance? What's the warranty period?

As usefriendly as it can be

Re: The Actifry ,Recipes and more

For anyone wishing to climb aboard the good ship Actifry, they are being sold today at dealino.ch for CHF 183.

apparently this is down from a regular selling price CHF 365.

Alas, counterspace and storage issues mean I will be left behind.

Re: The Actifry ,Recipes and more

Thanks Joey for this excellent thread!

You've made my mind up to get one. 177chf and 13chf for shipping through toppreise.ch (and the online store Venova).

Regarding your experiment with chips (or fries).....that is what made my mind up Your version of the fresh chips looks exactly like what I remember from chip shops back home in Ireland I've never had fries from those places that were crispy so your description of the taste sounds perfect too!

Thanks again and once i've made a few things i'll add to the thread.

Brian

Thanks Nqnln, 183 Chf is very well priced indeed, no difference anymore with what they sell them for in Germany.
Sure you could not buy one and store it in the oven?

Re: The Actifry ,Recipes and more

Right, here we are again..simple and easy one this time.

One potato (skinned) , half spoon of oil , 25/30 minutes depending on size and voila

Baked potatoes, low fat, crusty outside, smooth inside..



Never tried it, but since wedges work, why not the the potato as it is? and this proves it..it works

have a good one

Joey
