other air frying tips:

Make sure to toss basket or turn over  chicken halfway between cooking to get evenly crispy chicken.

Lightly coat chicken pieces with a spray of oil to add a bit more crispiness.

These cooking times are recommended for chicken thighs. You may need to adjust if cooking breasts.

When paired with all-purpose flour, cornstarch helps prevent gluten development, which makes the flour coating crispier,

To make the orange sauce– Combine orange juice, soy sauce and vinegar in a small saucepan over medium low heat. Cook till simmering, then stir in ginger and orange zest. Slowly whisk in corn starch slurry and stir till sauce thickens. Sauce takes less than 5 minutes to make!
