Air Fryer Honey Sesame Chicken Recipe

Honey Sesame Chicken cooked in an Air Fryer

An easy to make and quick (If you don’t want to have the marinade) dinner which can be made in an air fryer.  Crispy pieces of chicken which are tossed in a honey and sesame sauce – sweet and savoury together.  With the marinade, the chicken tastes a bit softer, but don’t worry if you don’t have the time to let the chicken rest in the sauce, it will still taste yummy.
