How to make the Best Air Fryer Sweet and Sour Chicken

I will be sharing with you guys the dish I cooked last time. It's the sweet and sour chicken using the air fryer, I believe I nailed is restaurant-like sweet and sour! 

The sweet and sour dish is a popular Chinese recipe because of its distinct flavor and aroma also it is highly appealing. 
Steamed, stir-fried, grilled, or fried, these meals can be prepared in a variety of ways. Sweet and sour recipes are among the most popular Chinese cuisines with a thick sauce. With this dish, the perfect blend of seasonings creates a truly culinary enjoyment. Sweet and sour can be made with a variety of meats, including fish, pork, and chicken. As a result, you can change the flavor of the dish by simply changing the meat you use.

Because we love the texture of chicken, especially the thigh, which has different strands of meat in it and is therefore very versatile when frying. Furthermore, chicken thigh meat is extremely tender and flavorful. Chicken meat has a high protein content and is low in fat. 
In comparison to pork, chicken is the simplest meat to prepare and cook.

Using some simple and readily available items, I was able to make the best air fryer sweet and sour chicken for this dish. And, because I was leveraging the Kaisavilla air fryer's capabilities, I was able to save time cooking, cook without using cooking oil, and multi-task because I left it in the kitchen while cooking. Also, because I control the temperature and timer, I know the chicken meat will not overcook. For this recipe, I also used my Garett induction cooker.

For the ingredients:

  • 3lbs- chicken thighs
  • chili powder
  • salt
  • white pepper
  • onion powder
  • Ajinomoto seasoning
  • Del Monte Sweet and Sour powder mix
  • Del Monte pineapple tidbits
  • carrots
  • red and green bell peppers
  • white onion
  • finger chilis

***Used the sweet and sour powder pack as it creates the nice and almost the same taste for S&S. If you have your own recipe for the sauce, you can absolutely use that one. :) Link me up with your recipe? Thanks!
