2 chicken breast cut into bite-size pieces
1 egg
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. soy sauce
2 cups cornstarch

Orange Sauce:
1 cup orange juice
1 T. rice vinegar
1 T. soy sauce
tsp. ground ginger
1 T. garlic, minced
zest from one orange
1 T. brown sugar
1 tsp. chili flakes
1 T. cornstarch
2 T. water

In a large bowl add chicken, salt, black pepper, soy sauce and egg. Mix well. In another bowl add the cornstarch. Dip the egg coated chicken in the cornstarch and place it on a plate or pan; set aside. Preheat the air fryer for 5 minutes at 350. Spray the basket with cooking oil then put the coated chicken pieces in it. Spray the chicken liberally with oil, which gives the chicken a nice crunchy coating. Cook for 5 minutes on each side. Flip the chicken pieces over. Again, oil the chicken liberally. Cook until golden brown and the internal temperature reaches 165. Repeat with the rest of the chicken. Set aside.

In a bowl combine together the orange juice, brown sugar, chili flakes, ginger, garlic, soy sauce and rice vinegar. Heat the mixture in a pan for 5 minutes. In a small bowl mix 1 tablespoon of the cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of water to make a paste. Add this into the orange sauce and cook for 3 minutes. Once the sauce is thickened, add the orange zest and mix everything together. Finally add all the cooked chicken pieces and toss it together until they are all coated in the sauce. Remove from the heat and serve over cooked rice.
