Air Fryer Mojo Chicken
Bright, citrusy marinade + air fryer = deliciously juicy, flavorful chicken that's diet friendly. Yield: 1 lb cooked chicken, 4 servings at 3 WW SP Each.
- 4 garlic cloves pressed
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 3 oranges juiced
- 2 limes juiced
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
- 1/4 tsp chili powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
- Vegetables of choice I like to do onion, pepper, zucchini
- Yellow rice
- 1 tsp butter
Combine marinade ingredients and split mixture in half
Cut up chicken breast into roughly 1 inch chunks and put into a gallon freezer bag with 1/2 of the marinade
Let chicken marinate for 30-45 minutes in the fridge
Put other half of marinate in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add 1 tsp butter and reduce for ~10 minutes. Sauce should thicken a bit.
Air fry chicken pieces at 385 for 18-20 minutes (check after 15 with an internal thermometer- you want it to read 165)
Cook veggies of choice (I like to do red onion, zucchini, and pepper in the air fryer - 14-16 min at 390 usually does the trick)
Toss cooked chicken with reduced sauce and serve with side of yellow rice and air fried veggies. I like to serve with a chili-dipped lime wedge as well.
Top with extra chopped cilantro and enjoy!
