2 chicken breasts
1 egg, beaten
50g panko breadcrumbs (or 2 slices of bread, crumbed) 

For the sauce
300ml chicken stock
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 thumb fresh ginger, grated
2 tbsp plain flower
1 tbsp medium curry powder
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp honey
1 tsp vegetable oil 


Step 1: Plug in and switch on the air fryer at the mains power supply. Set the temperature to 230°C.
Step 2: Flatten the chicken breasts using a tenderiser or a rolling pin. Coat each piece in egg and then cover in breadcrumbs.
Step 3: Using heat-resistant oven gloves, place the chicken breasts into the air fryer and shut the drawer.
Step 4: Cook for approximately 20–30 minutes. Check the chicken periodically during cooking and ensure it is cooked thoroughly.
Step 5: Whilst the chicken is cooking, make the sauce in a large frying pan. Gently fry the garlic in oil for approximately 1 minute. Then stir in the curry powder and ginger.
Step 6: Add the chicken stock gradually, stirring to avoid lumps, and leave to reduce for approximately 5 minutes. Thicken using plain flour if necessary.
Step 7: Stir in the soy sauce and honey and leave to simmer for approximately 5 minutes before serving.
