Air Fryer Allergy Friendly Gluten Free Honey Chicken over a bed of Rice

This is a healthy, allergy friendly version of Honey Chicken. This Air Fryer Gluten Free Honey Chicken can be served as a quick weeknight chicken dinner. Serve it with my Cauliflower Fried 'Rice' to make it even more healthy or if you are craving potatoes than these Potato Wedges will do the trick.

Air frying the chicken to give them a crispy texture without the extra oil makes it a little healthier. Also it feels like almost no effort is made in the cooking since air fryer does all the job and the sauce comes together in no time.

I have used coconut oil but you can use any oil or dairy free margarine you use. If you have corn allergies simply increase the amount of gluten free flour you are using and leave out the corn flour.

A tip for air frying is that the less flour the better the chicken comes out otherwise all the flour is stuck on the basket of the air fryer. What tips do you have for making the chicken crispier in air fryer?

Cook Notes

  • If you are not using soy sauce, use salt to taste instead.
  • Use oil instead of coconut oil/ dairy free butter.
  • If not using corn flour increase the gluten free flour (add same amount as corn flour).
  • For more sauce add 1 cup chicken stock or water before adding the chicken, let it come to a boil then add the chicken.
