Instructions

Chicken Assembly

  • Add the chunks of chicken to a large bowl. Add the beaten egg to the bowl and stir. Add the baking powder, salt and pepper and stir. Ensure the chicken is fully coated.

Air Fryer Instructions

  • Spray the air fryer basket with cooking oil.
  • Place the coated chicken in the air fryer.
  • Air fry on 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Open the air fryer basket and flip the chicken. Cook for an additional 5-10 minutes until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

Baking Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place the coated chicken on a sheet pan and in the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. (Flip the chicken halfway through.)

Sauce Assembly

  • While the chicken cooks, add all of the ingredients (except for the xanthan gum) for the sauce to a saucepan or skillet on medium heat. Simmer for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly until the sweetener has melted and the zest disintegrates.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of the sauce to a small bowl with the xanthan gum and stir. When it thickens, add the mixture to the sauce and stir continuously. It will take several minutes to thicken.
  • Coat the cooked chicken in the orange sauce. Serve with sesame seeds if desired.
