Air Fryer Orange Chicken

Typically deep- or pan-fried in oil, the option to air fry orange chicken instead saves a ton of calories and fat. Looking for a low-carb side? Serve this over simple air fried vegetables, letting them soak up the extra sauce in place of grains.


- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces

- 1/4 cup cornstarch

- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

- 1/4 cup orange juice

- 2 tablespoons soy sauce

- 2 tablespoons honey

- 1 tablespoon grated orange zest

- 1 teaspoon garlic powder

- 1 teaspoon onion powder

- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

- Olive oil cooking spray

- Salt, to taste

- Optional: Sesame seeds and green onions for garnish


1. In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch, flour, garlic powder, onion powder, ground ginger, and black pepper. Set aside.


2. In a separate bowl, combine the orange juice, soy sauce, honey, and grated orange zest. Whisk until well combined.


3. Dip each piece of chicken into the flour mixture, making sure it is evenly coated.


4. Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.


5. Spray the air fryer basket with olive oil cooking spray. Place the coated chicken pieces in a single layer in the basket, making sure they are not touching each other.


6. Cook the chicken in the air fryer for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through, until it is crispy and golden brown.


7. While the chicken is cooking, pour the orange juice mixture into a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens.


8. Once the chicken is done cooking, transfer it to a mixing bowl and pour the thickened orange sauce over the chicken. Toss the chicken in the sauce until it is evenly coated.


9. Season with salt to taste.


10. Optional: Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.


11. Serve the air fryer orange chicken hot and enjoy! It can be served over rice or with your choice of vegetables as a side dish. Enjoy your delicious and easy-to-make orange chicken!
