Preparing the Turkey

  1. Cut down your turkey thighs into bite-size pieces approximately 2 inches lengthwise with a heavy knife.
  2. In a blender, blend all the marinade ingredients.
  3. Marinade your turkey pieces for 20 minutes - preferably overnight in the refrigerator.
  4. Remove the marinated turkey from the refrigerator and coat the turkey with potato starch. The excess marinade will create little balls of crunchiness when deep-fried.
 

Air Fryer Method:

  1. Spray the tray and the turkey with some oil. I used a simple oil spray mister bottle.
  2. Place the coated turkey pieces in the air fryer tray/basket with ¼-inch space between each piece.
  3. First Fry: Set the temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and cook for 15 minutes. Flip halfway through and lightly spray the turkey with more oil.
  4. Remove air fryer tray/basket and let cool for 5 minutes, then air fry a second time.
  5. Second Fry: Set the temperature to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and cook for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove from the air fryer basket and let rest for 5 minutes.
  7. Toss and garnish with white pepper, sugar, and air fried Thai basil.
  8. Serve immediately and enjoy!
   

Air Fried Thai Basil:

  1. Spray the tray and the Thai basil leaves with some oil.
  2. Place the Thai basil leaves in the air fryer tray/basket.
  3. Set temperature to 250 degrees Fahrenheit and cook for 10 minutes. Check halfway to see if it has dried.
