The following recipe is intended for the Cosori 5.8 air fryer; different speeds and sizes will create different limitations and needs. Consult the manufacturer’s website for your air fryer for details.
My air fryer will accommodate up to a 5.5 lb chicken - which is what you see in the picture. I cooked it at a temperature a bit too high, and one of the legs was very dry. Everything else was delicious. This recipe reflects both what worked and what I intend to do next time.

Fried Okra (low fat, gluten free)
Beat one egg with one tablespoon water, and set aside. Wash and dry okra pods, discard stem ends and tips, and cut pods in 1/2” - 3/4” slices. Immerse okra slices in the egg wash. In gallon baggie, blend 3/4 cup medium cornmeal, 1/4 cup gluten free flour (or any flour you prefer), 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp Old Bay seasoning.
This is a good place to stop and preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees.
Back to the okra: Using your hands, lift the okra slices from the egg wash and place them in the baggie - this technique drains the slices of most but not all of the egg. Seal the baggie carefully then shake gently until all okra slices are coated with the cornmeal mixture.
Dump the okra onto a cutting board, retaining the extra cornmeal in the baggie. (You can either keep this for your next batch, or discard.) Spray okra thoroughly with avocado spray, being sure to cover all sides of the slices.
Carefully place the okra in your HOT air fryer basket.
Set air fryer for 10 minutes, and fry, stopping at midpoint to stir the okra. You may want to give an extra spritz of avocado oil while stirring. Please be careful - the fryer basket is very hot!
When the fryer turns itself off, carefully pour the okra into a serving bowl. Serve with hot sauce and enjoy.
Take direct from fridge; place on a rack in the air fryer. Do not preheat the fryer, just cook at 250 for 16 minutes. Transfer immediately to full immersion in ice water bath. I leave them there for maybe half an hour, then move to fridge. I use a rack (as pictured) in air fryer. for convenience - keeps eggs in place and allows air fully to circulate - but I’m told it is an optional addition.
For some reason, they seem easier to peel then when made in a more conventional method and other "air fryers" have noted that as well.
