Notes

  • If your Air Fryer basket is small, cook the chicken and vegetables in batches as overcrowding the basket will result in steamed chicken and vegetables and they won't char.
  • This recipe makes 2-3 generous portions.
  • Nutrition is calculated per serving assuming 2 servings, excluding rice.
  • To make a sauce (optional): After air frying, you can make a sauce to toss the chicken and vegetables in. Here's how you make it: double the marinade amounts, take half of it and mix with ¼ cup of water and 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. Then in a small saucepan on the stovetop, simmer the sauce until it thickens. Toss the Air Fryer chicken and broccoli in the sauce and serve over rice.
