Air Fryer General Tso’s Chicken Sandwich With Broccoli Slaw Recipe

Air Fryer General Tso’s Chicken Sandwich With Broccoli Slaw Recipe

I turned a classic takeout dinner into a sandwich that’s simple to make at home. The air fryer keeps it lighter but still crunchy, and the recipe can be made in under 30 minutes, which is a must for our active family. We like spicy foods, so this sauce has a good amount of heat.




  • ½ cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp. hoisin sauce
  • 3 cups broccoli coleslaw mix
  • ½ cup sliced almonds
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into ½-in. strips
  • 4 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper


  • ¼ cup hoisin sauce
  • 3 Tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. minced fresh gingerroot
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ to 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 brioche hamburger buns, split
  • Sesame seeds

1. In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, honey, vinegar and hoisin sauce. Stir in coleslaw mix and almonds; refrigerate until serving.

2. Preheat air fryer to 400°. Toss chicken with cornstarch, salt and pepper. In batches, arrange the chicken in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket. Cook until lightly browned and chicken is no longer pink, 4-5 minutes on each side.

3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine hoisin sauce, soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic and pepper flakes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Add cooked chicken; toss to coat.

4. Spoon chicken on bun bottoms; top with coleslaw mix and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Replace tops.
