General Tsos Chicken


  • 1 pound chicken thighs, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons black vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon cooking wine
  • 1 tablespoon white granulated sugar
  • ½ cup broth (vegetable, chicken or beef)
  • 2 red chili peppers, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, grated
  • 1 green onion, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch


  1. Season the chicken in a mixing bowl with salt, pepper and oil. Toss well and set aside to rest for 10 minutes.
  2.  In a large freezer bag, add flour and the season chicken. Seal the bag and shake vigorously until the chicken is well coated.
  3. Spray a nice even layer of cooking oil at the bottom of the cooking pot of the Swap Pot, place the coated chicken in the pot and use lid.
  4.  Select the “Air Crisp” program and manually increase the cook time to 20 minutes.
  5. Wait until the Swap Pot has finished cooking the chicken before moving on to the next step. Remove the chicken from the Swap Pot and let it rest.
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk together soy sauce, black vinegar, cooking wine, sugar, broth, chili peppers, garlic, ginger, green onion, sesame oil and cornstarch. In a saucepan, cook the mixture over medium heat for 4-5 minutes while stirring continuously until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat.
  7.  Gently toss the air fried chicken into the sauce until evenly coated.
  8. Enjoy!
