Air Fryer Recipes

Air Fryer Sesame Chicken


  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (plus more for garnish)
  • Sliced green onions, for garnish
  • Cooking spray or oil for the air fryer basket


  1. Marinate the Chicken:
    • In a bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Add the chicken pieces to the marinade and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 380°F (190°C) for about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Prepare Coating:
    • In a small bowl, mix cornstarch with water until smooth. This will be used to coat the chicken.
  4. Coat the Chicken:
    • Remove chicken from the marinade, shaking off any excess. Dip each piece of chicken into the cornstarch mixture until well-coated.
  5. Air Fry:
    • Lightly spray or brush the air fryer basket with oil to prevent sticking. Place the coated chicken pieces in a single layer in the air fryer basket, making sure they’re not touching each other.
    • Air fry at 380°F (190°C) for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Finish and Serve:
    • Once the chicken is cooked, sprinkle sesame seeds over the chicken and gently toss to coat.
    • Serve hot, garnished with additional sesame seeds and sliced green onions if desired. You can pair it with rice or veggies for a complete meal.
