Cook Time
  • 2pcs Kee Song boneless chicken leg
  • 2pcs burger buns
  • 2tbsp sambal belachan
  • 2tbsp Japanese mayonnaise
  • green and red coral vegetable
  • butter spread
Chicken Marinade (A)
  • tbsp prawn paste
  • tbsp chinese cooking wine
  • 1tbsp sesame oil
  • 1tsp sugar
Coating to fry (B)
  • ½cup cornflour
  • ½tbsp baking powder
  • 2tbsp oil
Step 1: Marinate the chicken legs
  1. In a large bowl, pour in ingredients (A). Mix evenly.
  2. Add in the Kee Song boneless chicken legs and coat it evenly.
  3. Place the chicken into a ziplock bag, release the air from ziplock bag, and put it in the chiller for at least 8 hours. This process helps to evenly marinate the chicken meat.
Step 2: Air Fry the chicken legs
  1. Preheat the Air fryer to 200 degree Celsius.
  2. Mix ingredients (B) in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Wipe off excess marinade on the meat. Coat the meat with the flour mixture. Gently tap off excess flour. By tapping off excess flour, it'll give you a beautiful golden brown chicken when fried and with lesser harden bits.
Step 3: Mix sauce for the burger
  1. Mix sambal belachan and mayonnaise together in a bowl.
Step 4: Prepare the burger bun
  1. Spread a thin layer of butter on the buns. Toast the buns for 5 mins on a frying pan. This gives the buns a bit of buttery sweetness.
Step 5: Assemble the burger and serve
  1. Build up an incredible burger. To serve the burger, lay a few pieces of green and purple coral vegetables on the bottom of the burger bun, place the crispy prawn paste chicken leg and drench over the sambal mayonnaise before closing the bun. Now it is ready to be served!
