This is likely because you stacked the chicken or because the skin wasn’t crisped (your temperature wasn’t hot enough). If you do, the hot air in the frying chamber cannot crisp up the chicken evenly.
Personally, I love a fresh cold salad, like a Cucumber And Onion Salad Recipe. It helps make the meal less heavy. You can also try this Russian Potato Salad.
Most recipes for air-frying chicken are healthier as compared to deep-frying. It can cut down on as much as 70-80% of calories because you don’t dredge the chicken in oil (fat).
You won’t get the exact same results because the appliances work differently. An oven cannot circulate the hot air as well as an air fryer can.
