Air Fried Oyster Mushroom Chicken

Battered, seasoned, and air-fried to a crispy golden brown, these vegan oyster mushroom chicken will satisfy your comfort food cravings! If I’m being honest, I really wasn’t sure this recipe would work. I mean to make vegan fried “chicken” with mushrooms is one thing. But to nix the frying completely in lieu of air frying? It shouldn’t have worked. But oooh did it worked!



Oyster mushrooms are a good source of vitamin D, protein, fiber, potassium, vitamin B6 and folate and can be found at most Asian grocery stores and farmers markets. The thing I love about oyster mushrooms for this recipe are all the nooks and crannies. The irregular shape of the mushroom provide “hooks” for the breading, so that it doesn’t just slide right off when you dredge the mushrooms. This ensures a delightful crunch with each and every bite.



These crispy oyster mushrooms are full of flavour with a crunchy coating, ensuring that they are delightfully crunchy outside and succulent inside, not to mention with a tender meaty center. They are just perfect and need no added oil. I don’t know about you guys, but I am a huge fan of mushrooms. Air frying these mushrooms gives them that distinctly crunchy, fried texture (with way, way less fat).



IF YOU EVER GIVE THIS RECIPE A TRY, DO LEAVE A COMMENT BELOW AND/OR TAG @FRUITYEMZ AND HASHTAG #FRUITYEMZ ON YOUR INSTAGRAM POST! I WOULD LOVE TO SEE ALL YOUR YUMMY CREATIONS 🙂
