Trader Joe's Orange Chicken (The BEST Cooking Method)
Trader Joe's Orange Chicken is one of the most popular Trader Joe's frozen items, and for good reason. Here are some instructions on my favorite way to prepare this Mandarin Orange Chicken- in the air fryer!
Total time: 12 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Yields: 5 servings
Number of ingredients: 3
Ingredients:
  • 1 Bag Trader Joe's Orange Chicken (Sauce included)
  • Green Onion & Sesame Seeds for garnish
  • White Rice for serving
Nutrition:
  • Calories: 320 calories
  • Carbohydrate: 24 grams carbohydrates
  • Fat: 16 grams fat
  • Protein: 21 grams protein
  • Serving Size: 1 Cup
How to cook:
  1. Remove the Trader Joe's Orange Chicken from the freezer, and empty the contents of the bag into the air fryer basket. Do not defrost the Orange Chicken, and you do not need to preheat the air fryer, either! (Be sure you set the sauce packets aside)
  2. Air fry at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes, shaking the air fryer basket halfway through.
  3. The Orange Chicken should be crisped up very well after 10 minutes, but if you prefer well-done, you can air fry for an additional 2 minutes.
  4. Empty the sauce packets into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute.
  5. Toss the cooked chicken in a large bowl with your sauce. Note that I saved a small amount of sauce on the side to drizzle on top, but you can use all the sauce to toss if preferred.
  6. Serve over white rice, garnish with green onion and/or sesame seeds, and drizzle any leftover sauce over the top.
Notes: Frozen Orange Chicken Air Fryer, Reheating your orange chicken in the oven is the best option! Simply place the orange chicken into an oven-safe dish and heat at 350ºF (175ºC) for 10
