*You can also deep fry the chicken if that’s what you prefer. Double fry for extra crispiness.
*The cooking spray is important in order to get that crispiness from air frying.
*The sauce will thicken up even more when it’s cold. Make sure not to thicken it up too much. If it becomes too thick or to loosen the sauce, add water (1 tbsp at a time) until your desired consistency.
