Prawn Paste Chicken (虾酱鸡)

This dish is always a must order when eating zi char and when I got my Air Fryer I have always been wanting to make it at home but my first few attempts was not successful with too much flour or too thick a batter. This time I tried another recipe but I used just corn flour cos I didn’t  have any potato starch.
