General Tso’s chicken is a staple at westernized Chinese restaurants, but it often packs a hefty punch of fat due to being deep-fried. When you make General Tso’s chicken in the air fryer, however, you can cut nearly half the saturated fat while still keeping all the classic flavors you love. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may have to make the chicken in batches; however, since it only takes about 15 minutes to cook, even making the chicken in batches will take less than an hour. Pair with rice for a classic meal, or mix it up with some steamed veggies.
There’s nothing quite like a perfectly crispy bite of tofu, but getting to that bite can be a hassle. Ovens often don’t crisp up quite the way you want, and if you fry the tofu on the stove, you’re dealing with splattering oil and the potential to burn the tofu. Making crispy tofu in the air fryer, though, couldn’t be easier. The best thing about tofu is that it’s a blank canvas for any flavor you can imagine; this recipe uses a soy-based marinade and a spicy sauce, but you can use any flavors you like. It only takes 15 minutes to cook, tossing halfway through, and you can serve it with rice for a quick and easy meal that’s both healthy and delicious.
