Important Cooking Notes

- Adding eggs to the chicken will help bind the crumbs
- When coating the chicken make sure to drip off excess egg mix before placing into the crumbs
- You can use chicken strips for this recipe instead of cubes then when serving you can cut into smaller peices
- Use cooking spray to give the chicken that golden colour once cooked
- You don’t necessarily need a blender, you can just add the sauce ingredients into the pan and mixing till smooth and creamy
- To meal prep you can store the chicken and mac seperately so you can reheat in the air fryer to make the chicken crispy again
