If you like to spice up your chicken then you can add some additional flavours to the wet or dry batter. We like paprika, cayenne pepper, cajun seasoning, white pepper and dried rosemary.

The foodie also made a dip from half a cup of mayonnaise, a quarter cup of ketchup, a teaspoon of garlic, pepper, creole seasoning and half a teaspoon or Worcestershire sauce.

They also wrote: “While I was deep-frying the chicken I just air fried the fries. I don't even think I used any spray oil. Air fryer is a godsend of an appliance.”
