Air Fryer Orange Chicken


Too bad because this was really delicious. Plus, it was easy to prepare and fast to cook.

This recipe should be put under Air Fryer and 30 Minute Meals. 

I found this recipe on Lite Cravings.com

Air Fryer Orange Chicken

Prep Time 15 mins

Cook Time 15 mins



1 lbs raw boneless, skinless chicken breast

1 large egg, whisked

2/3 cup cornstarch or potato starch (see blog notes)


1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice, from about 2 medium oranges

1 tsp minced ginger

1 tbsp cornstarch

2 tbsp rice wine vinegar

2 tbsp oyster sauce 

3 tbsp soy sauce

2 1/2 tbsp honey

1 tbsp water

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes


Preheat air fryer to 375F.

Cut chicken into 1-inch cubes. Mix together with whisked egg until all chicken is coated.

In a large plastic bag, add the cornstarch. Using tongs, take the chicken pieces out of the egg mixture, allowing excess egg to drip off and add to the bag.

Close the bag and shake chicken pieces around until fully coated by the cornstarch. Remove pieces from the bag and place them on the cutting board that you used to cut up your chicken

Liberally coat the side of the chicken facing up with cooking spray. Add the chicken, sprayed side down, to the basket of your air fryer. Now spray the side facing up, so all sides of the chicken are coated.

Air fry at 375F for 10-15 minutes, or until chicken is slightly browned and cooked through

As the chicken cooks, make the sauce in a medium-sized skillet. Whisk sauce ingredients together and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens–about 5 minutes.

Toss cooked chicken with sauce and serve immediately.
