Enjoy these Asian Air Fryer Chicken Recipes, that will make you think you are eating it straight from a restaurant. 

One of the first things most people try out in the air fryer is Air Fryer Chicken Wings.  I’m not sure what it is about chicken wings but as soon as anyone gets an air fryer, I always hear that the first recipe they try is air fryer chicken wings.

I won’t knock it either, they are amazing, so amazing that we usually buy a bag of chicken wings every week just to cook in our air fryer too. 

Did you know though that you can actually make some delicious meals with Air Fryer Chicken? I mean full meals just like you would get at your local Asian restaurant?

I’m certainly not going to call these authentic recipes, but I will say they taste just as good in my opinion as the real deal, without all the oil.

Plus, for me, I’m able to make them gluten-free too which is a must!

What type of chicken should you use in the air fryer for Asian chicken?

If you are making chicken in the air fryer, I highly suggest boneless, skinless chicken thighs.  This by far the best cut of chicken for air fryer chicken.  Even for air fried chicken, chicken thighs are the go-to in our household.

Chicken thighs tend to be juicier and have more flavor as opposed to chicken breasts.  I’ve also found that in the air fryer, chicken breast can dry out much more quickly than chicken thighs. Be sure to grab this Coupon Code: 10% Off and FREE Diced Chicken!

If you are making Asian chicken in the Air Fryer, you will find chicken thighs to taste more equivalent to the restaurant quality that you love.

What is the cooking time for Air Fryer Chicken?

Generally speaking, chicken takes about 20 minutes on 390 degrees in an air fryer to cook; however, that can always vary.  Chicken must be at least 165 degrees to be fully cooked.

That means having a quick read thermometer on hand is vital to be sure your chicken is well done.

How do you make gluten-free Asian Air Fryer Chicken?

Each of my recipes is gluten-free.  The key is to use gluten-free soy sauce when making the sauce for the chicken, as well as adapting any other ingredients as necessary.

I also use gluten-free cornstarch to coat the chicken too. 

Asian Air Fryer Chicken Recipes:

There are a few things to keep in mind with these Asian Air Fryer Chicken Recipes, the method is the EXACT same for each one.  The primary difference is the sauce.

That means if you like Kung Pao Chicken, all you need to do is change the sauce.  The same method of cooking the chicken still applies, but you will add a different sauce. It’s also easy to use store-bought sauce too if that’s your preference.

I make all of ours from scratch simply because I prefer that and can also control if it has gluten or not when I do it myself.
