Air Fryer Orange Chicken

Yes, I do love the Air Fryer!  

For dinner tonight we made Air Fryer Orange Chicken. Quite good. The only change I would make is to make the pieces a little bigger. The chicken had a nice coating on it and the sauce was perfect.

Orange Chicken

1/2 lb boneless Chicken Breast, cubed
3 egg, beaten
1 cup cornstarch
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

1 cup of orange juice
2 tbsp butter
2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp grated ginger
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp finely chopped scallion
1 pinch crushed red pepper
zest of 1 orange
White Rice for serving

Toss the chicken with the egg in a bowl.

Combine the cornstarch, salt, and pepper in a separate small bowl and mix.

Coat the chicken with the cornstarch mixture. Shake off any excess cornstarch.

Insert the Fry Tray into the Basket. Insert the Basket into the air fryer.

Press the French Fry button, 400˚F, and set the cooking time for 15 minutes.

Combine all the sauce ingredients in a pan and bring to a boil on the stovetop. Then, lower the heat to simmer. Cook until reduced by half.

Trhasfer the cooked chicken toa bow.

Add the sauce and toss to coat.

Serve the chicken over white rice with a drizzle of orange sauce.
