“What I love about using the taste Korean Sticky Chicken Meal Kit in this recipe is that the sauce adds a real kick to the dish fast, making it a super-easy weeknight meal. Cooking eggplant normally uses a lot of oil so using the air fryer keeps the crisp factor without all the calories. I bet it will be a new family favourite in your household in no time.” – Michelle Southan, Food Director

300g pkt Taste Meal Kit Korean Sticky Chicken

4 Method Steps
Step 1Place the flour

Can you put eggplant in the air fryer?
Eggplant is a great vegetable to cook in the air fryer as you only need to use a tiny bit of oil spray, as opposed to its pan-frying counterpart. This means it’s much better for you. Make sure you also check out our air fryer eggplant chips recipe.
