  • 640 g chicken mini fillets
  • Peri peri seasoning See above for my recipe


  1. Add the chicken mini fillets to a bowl.
  2. Add the peri peri seasoning and then massage it all over the chicken breasts.

  3. Spray the air fryer basket with a little spray oil, if you'd like.
  4. Place the chicken fillets into the air fryer basket.

  5. Cook for 20 minutes at 200C (400F), turning the chicken when the cooking time is 10 minutes in.

  6. When cooking if you need to overcrowd your air fryer basket then ensure that you give it a good shake at least every 5 minutes while cooking.

  7. Check the temperature of your peri peri chicken before serving, to ensure it is 74C/165F internally.

  8. That's it! Enjoy your juicy succulent chicken however you fancy. It is great served with a nice portion of air fryer frozen chips or air fryer potato wedges.
