Shio Koji Chicken in Airfryer

Slit and stuff garlic slices
- 2 Chicken Thighs
- 3 Cloves of Garlic, sliced
- 2 Tbsp Shio Koji
- Salt

01. Pat dry chicken thighs before making some deep slits on both sides.
02. Rub shio koji onto meat, making sure it goes into the slits and under the skin.
03. Stuff garlic slices into slits.
04. Let it marinades in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Shio Koji
Shio-koji may not be easily found in Europe/U.S.A's Asian markets. Unless you're staying in the city with Japanese Supermarket. However, you may be able to get 'em from Amazon.

Making your own shio-koji is quite a hassle, too. Just the ingredients needed when you stay outside of Japan will send you back to buying it off the shelf straight.

Steak Cage - Airfryer
Optional: Spray Steak Cage well with olive oil.

All in to Airfryer
Secure chicken thighs in steak cage into Airfryer.

Airfryer Setting
Setting > 230C > 20mins > Roller On

Look at it roll! Be careful of burnt. Marinating in shio-koji can make your meat/seafood/vegetable burnt easily. To avoid that, make sure your meat has good amount of fats or coat it with more olive/cooking oil. If the chicken skin cooks too fast, before it's cooked through, reduce the heat, NOT the timer.

Remove steak cage carefully from the airfryer. Gear up well to remove the lid and the cooked meat out from the steak cage while it's still hot! You'll need to carefully struggle a little if the meat burnt onto the cage itself ミヽ(。><)ノ

You can serve the cooked meat on top of a bed of thinly sliced fresh cabbage -  drizzle with some wafu sauce - and pour the remaining jus found in the airfryer onto the meat.

I'm pairing it with Spicy Butter Grilled Brinjal.

- 1 Brinjal, cut into 4 halves
- Nonya Dried Shrimp Sambal
- Butter
- Sea Salt

01. Place slices of butter on baking pan. I've used cheese slicer to shave it.
02. Place brinjal onto buttered pan, skin side down, turning it left and right a little to coat it well with butter.
03. Shave butter to cover the top of brinjal, sprinkle salt to taste.
04. Airfryer > High Steel Rack > Baking Pan > Setting > 200C > 8 minutes (set longer for thicker pieces)
05. Pause cooking at the last 2-3 minutes to spread Nonya Dried Shrimp Sambal and continue to cook through the remaining time.
06. Remove grilled brinjal and pour remaining melted butter onto it before serving.

Final Assembling
