These Asian Glazed Chicken Thighs come out so succulent and tasty in the air fryer! When you think of air fryers you naturally think of air fryer french fries or air fryer chicken nuggets and recipes with breading. This chicken thigh recipe uses boneless chicken thighs, no breading at all.
The air fryer does so much more than it’s fundamentally an oven on steroids! These thighs come out so juicy, they are ideal over rice with steamed veggies like bok choy or snap peas.
Air Fryer Asian-Glazed Boneless Chicken Thighs
- 32 ounces 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, fat trimmed
- 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 2 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 teaspoon Sriracha hot sauce
- 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
- 1 scallion, green only sliced for garnish
First, in a small basin mix the balsamic, soy sauce, honey, garlic, sriracha and ginger and mix well.
Then pour half of the marinade (1/4 cup) into a large basin with the chicken, cover all the meat and marinate at least two (2) hours, or as long as overnight.
After reserve the remaining sauce for later.
Then preheat the air fryer to 400F.
Take away the chicken from the marinade and transport to the air fryer basket.
After Cook in batches fourteen (14) minutes, turning halfway until cooked through in the center.
Meanwhile, put the remaining sauce in a small pot and cook over medium-low heat until it reduces slightly and thickens, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Finally, to serve, drizzle the sauce over the chicken and top with scallions.
