Gluten Free Sweet and Sour Chicken Recipe

    4 Servings


  • 6 thighs Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
  • 1/4 cup Cornstarch, plus more for coating the chicken
  • 1 clove Garlic, crushed
  • 8 ounces Canned Pineapple, juice reserved
  • 1 Green Pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup Sweet Onion, diced
  • 1 3/4 cups Water
  • 3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Distilled White Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Ketchup
  • Cooked Rice, optional


  1. Cut the chicken into cubed chunks, then toss in a bowl with the starch. Use enough to coat the chicken evenly.
  2. Place in the Air Fryer and cook according to the Air Fryer Manual for chicken. (Ours is cooked on 390°F for 25 minutes.)
  3. Halfway through the cook time, turn the chicken.
  4. While the chicken is cooking, in a small saucepan, combine the garlic, pineapple chunks with the juice, pepper, onion, water, sugar, vinegar, and the soy sauce.
  5. Whisk in the ketchup and let it get to a nice, low boil.
  6. Whisk in the cornstarch and continue cooking for about 5 minutes until it’s thickened.
  7. Remove the chicken from the Air Fryer and then add the sauce and coat the chicken with it.
  8. Top the chicken over the cooked rice.
  9. Serve.
