    Great recipe and very crispy if made in an air fryer.

    Love it!! I made it for my parents who are picky eaters and my 2 year old and there was none left! They can't wait for me to make it again.

    The recipe should have been published with 4-1/2 teaspoons sherry or broth and will be updated soon.

    There's no way 1 1/2 tsp. sherry or broth will stir smoothly into 1/4 c. cornstarch! I'll try a little more liquid. Wish me luck!
