Air Fried Orange Chicken

Ingredients :

2 lbs chicken thighs, boneless and skinless

4 tbsp flour of choice (I like cashew flour)

4 tbsp orange juice

4 tbsp lemon juice

Zest of 2 Oranges

1tbsp soy sauce (I like Bragg’s Amino Acids)

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 cup sugar or substitute

1 tsp ginger, minced

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tbsp green onions, diced

¼ tsp red pepper flakes

¼ tsp kosher salt

¼ tsp black pepper

Sesame seeds, garnish

Instructions:

Mix together the orange juice, lemon juice, zest, soy sauce, sugar, ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes, and green onions in a medium sized bowl.

Combine salt, pepper, and almond flour in a zip lock bag.

Add the chicken and shake to coat.

Coat the air fryer basket with the coconut oil and preheat to 350 degrees.

Place the chicken pieces in the fryer and cook for 20 minutes or until golden brown on each side.

Add the chicken pieces to the orange juice mixture and coat evenly.

Air fry for an additional 5 minutes.

Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.

    So, my husband loves fried chicken and homemade macaroni and cheese. I know! I like the sound of a less fat option for the chicken.
