This recipe combines the bold flavors of soy sauce, honey, and the exotic notes of fresh ginger, all brought together in the magic of the air fryer. Crispy, golden bites of chicken, kissed by the whispers of sesame, would soon emerge, ready to delight your taste buds and elevate your dinner table.
For the Chicken:
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (for garnish, optional)
- 1 green onion, thinly sliced (for garnish, optional)
For the Coating:
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- Cooking spray
- In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, minced garlic, grated ginger, and rice vinegar to create the marinade.
- Add the chicken pieces to the marinade and let them soak for at least 20-30 minutes in the refrigerator, allowing the flavors to infuse.
- In a separate shallow bowl, combine the cornstarch, all-purpose flour, salt, and black pepper to create the coating mixture.
- Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 5 minutes.
- Remove the marinated chicken pieces from the bowl, letting any excess marinade drip off.
- Toss the chicken pieces in the coating mixture until they are well coated, shaking off any excess.
- Lightly coat the EaZy MealZ Air Fry Crisper Basket & Bake Pan with cooking spray or use parchment paper to prevent sticking.
- Place the coated chicken pieces in a single layer in the EaZy MealZ Air Fry Crisper Basket & Bake Pan , making sure they don't overlap.
- Air fry the chicken at 400°F (200°C) for 10-12 minutes, shaking the basket or flipping the pieces halfway through, or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through.
- Once done, remove the chicken from the air fryer and place it on a serving plate.
- Garnish the Air Fryer Sesame Ginger Chicken with sesame seeds and thinly sliced green onions, if desired.
- Serve the chicken with rice or your favorite side dish and drizzle any remaining sauce from the marinade over the top.
Enjoy your delicious and crispy Air Fryer Sesame Ginger Chicken!
