With the help of your air fryer, this popular Chinese dish can be made fresh in your home and on your table faster than delivery. Bonus is that the chicken is air-fried instead of deep-fried making it a more wholesome choice. Serve over rice if desired.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon chopped scallions, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds, or to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine broth, sesame oil, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, cornstarch, garlic, and Sriracha for sauce in a medium saucepan. Whisk until cornstarch is dissolved. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low.
  2. 2 Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) according to manufacturer's instructions.
  3. 3 Place chicken, cornstarch, and soy sauce into a bowl and stir until chicken is evenly coated. Transfer chicken to the basket of the air fryer. Spray with cooking spray.
  4. 4 Cook in the preheated air fryer for 8 minutes. Shake the basket, breaking up any pieces that have stuck together, and spray with cooking spray again. Continue to cook until chicken is no longer pink in the centers, about 8 minutes more.
  5. 5 Transfer chicken to a large bowl. Pour sauce over chicken and toss to coat. Garnish with scallions and sesame seeds.

  1. I followed this recipe to the letter. Only thing I didn’t have was scallions. This was so very very good. My husband said this is one that we will make again and again. It was very simple to make too.
  2. Recipe makes no sense, especially directions regarding the corn starch and soy sauce. It says nothing about separating those two items into separate batches.
  3. Easy and fast, buy missing something flavor wise.
  4. It was just ok.
  5. I made it and the wife loved it, I did add a little honey just to add a lighter taste
  6. Next time I’ll make more sauce. Delicious!
  7. Looked like the image and followed exact recipe. Unfortunately tastes nothing like general tsos!!
