  • Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) according to manufacturer's instructions.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Transfer chicken to a large bowl. Pour sauce over chicken and toss to coat. Garnish with scallions and sesame seeds.

Recipe makes no sense, especially directions regarding the corn starch and soy sauce. It says nothing about separating those two items into separate batches. Read More
