  • 1 Chicken breast boneless, skinless
  • ½ cup Coconut milk
  • 4 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon Ground ginger
  • 1 Lime juiced, zested
  • 2 tablespoon Brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon Turmeric
  • 2 tablespoon Soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha

Peanut Sauce

  • 2 tablespoon Crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon Sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon Oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoon Sriracha hot sauce
  • 2 teaspoon Brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon Hot water


  • Prepare the chicken: Cut the chicken breast into lengthwise strips. Place the chicken flat on a cutting board, and pound flat with a meat mallet or any heavy object you can use to pound the chicken.
  • Marinate: Mix together the ingredients for the chicken marinade. Add the chicken, and let sit for 30 minutes.
  • Air fry: Using tongs, drain off the excess chicken marinade and place the chicken in an air fryer basket. Spray the top lightly with cooking spray, and air fry for 10-12 minutes.
  • Prepare the peanut sauce: In a mixing bowl, mix together the peanut sauce and set aside.


  • Do not overcrowd the air fryer basket! To best mimic a grill or grill pan, do not overcrowd the air fryer basket. This will allow the air to circulate and let the chicken get a nice char.
  • Adjust the hot water in the sauce, according to the consistency you like for the peanut sauce.
