Air Fryer Chicken Thighs

When you think of air fryers you typically 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 as it’s essentially an oven on steroids! These thighs come out so juicy, they are perfect over rice with steamed veggies like bok choy or snap peas.

Because a lot of you bought my latest cookbook, Skinnytaste Air Fryer Cookbook (thank you!) and the Skinnytaste Vremi Air Fryer I promised I would share more air fryer recipes each week. If you don’t have an air fryer, cook this in the oven or on the grill, adjusting the cook time to make sure they are cooked through in the center.

Chicken Thigh Marinade Ingredients

  • soy sauce, for savory unami
  • balsamic vinegar, for sweetness and acidity
  • honey, for sweetness
  • garlic, for flavor
  • Sriracha, for heat
  • ginger, for spiciness and warmth

Reasons I love air frying:

  • Food comes out so much crispier than it does in my oven.
  • It takes only three minutes to preheat, it doesn’t heat up the kitchen.
  • It’s safer and healthier than deep frying and it doesn’t smoke up the whole house.
  • The air fryer has now replaced my oven on most weekdays and nights, whether making hard boiled eggs, whipping up a side dish, heating up leftovers, or making dinner.

  1. Really tasty recipe and easy to put together!

  2. I marinated in the morning. It was delicious and tasty. I made coconut rice to go with it. 

  3. Absolutely delicious!

  4. Fast and delicious! 

  5. Simple and delicious recipe, one recommendation – double the sauce!

  6. So delicious! I made this for the first time last week and it was already requested that I make it again this week! I agree with other reviews that advise to double the sauce and cook it for longer and 1-2 minutes. I simmered it for about 10 minutes (about the length of time the chicken was in the air fryer). Before I started simmering, I also whisked a couple tablespoons of the sauce with 1 tbsp corn starch to thicken the sauce. It made a very nice sticky teriyaki sauce that was so flavorful! Used my Instant Pot brand air fryer.

    I served the chicken with white rice and roasted vegetables. I also toasted some sesame seeds to top the meal in addition to the green onions. We loved the sauce, and almost could have made more to drizzle over the rice and veggies!

    I’m making it tonight with boneless, skinless chicken breasts because that’s what was available at the store. I cut them in half because they were HUGE and they are marinating now. Planning to cook them for 6-7 minutes per side and serve with steamed broccoli and white rice.

    I know I’ll keep making this one! Yum, thank you!

  7. Can I use chicken breast instead of thighs

  8. We made this tonight.  Fantastic!!!

  9. I’ve made this before and we love, love, love it!
    I bought thighs the other day so I could make this again, but accidentally bought bone-in, skin-on.
    Is it okay to use those in this recipe and if so, do I need to make adjustments?  Thank you in advance!

  10. I do not understand how you are to cover the meat with only 1/4 cup of liquid.

  11. This turned out AMAZING!!!! Easy to make and tastes like it was prepared in a fancy restaurant!

  12. Sooo delicious!!!

  13. Great flavor and so easy and quick! New favorite! 

  14. Delicious and easy to make. I added extra sirracha and ginger to mine, a new favourite!

  15. the bok choy looks amazing too – did you steam it? grill it?

  16. Our new favorite ! Wow are these amazing, and I don’t even like thighs. I followed exactly, but used the grill instead, about 6 min each side. These will be made weekly this summer. TY! 

  17. Please, could you also add recipe/how cooked for the book Choi, etc.? Thank you!

  18. What is the veggie pictured?  Is that Bok Choy? How is that prepared – is it grilled?

  19. I just got an air fryer and skinny taste was my first stop! So excited on how quick it is to make meat and this recipe didn’t disappoint. So tasting, and the glaze works so well over a bed of rice. Saving!

  20. Hi Gina!
    I have all of your books and my family and I love your recipes….
    However, I currently do not have a printer and when I find a recipe that I want make I do not know which cookbook to refer to. 
    Is there a possibility that you could indicate which book to refer to in your recipes?

  21. This recipe is great and the chicken turns out delicious.. the only issue I have is I can’t seem to get the sauce to thicken. And tips?

  22. This is great!  I’ve made several times. I was on keto awhile back and made it then with monk fruit sweetener instead of honey, worked out great too.  It’s become one of our faves 

  23. I rarely review recipes but I absolutely had to for this one. This chicken is INRCREDIBLE and SO JUICY! Gina please make more air-fryer chicken thigh recipes

  24. This was a tasty recipe – I don’t have an air fryer (yet) – so I cooked in a convection oven @ 400 degrees for 25 mins. Made one substitution because I didn’t have sriracha – I subbed red chili paste in the marinade and it was still good !  I made it sheet pan style with broccoli and small potatoes on the same pan. Your recipes have not disappointed – keep them coming !  👍🏻

  25. Exceptional! Hubby took one bite and said ‘this is good’. Easy to prep. Easy to cook. Doesn’t heat up kitchen. I usually have a balsamic vinegar on hand that I use on so many things from salads to ice cream but, of course, as I was measuring it out (doubling as many suggested) I realized I was almost out. After a quick Google search I added about a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. I’ll definitely be making this often – maybe freezing chicken thighs in the marinade so they will be ready to thaw and air fry. TY Gina!

  26. When you cook in batches, how do you keep the first one warm do everyone is served at once

  27. So great!  Quick and simple, delicious.  

  28. Delicious, have made it multiple times now and whole family likes it. Definitely double the sauce! I use tamari instead of soy and tastes delicious.

  29. Hi I put this recipe into the ww app and the points said 11 for blue. Aren’t the 2 chicken thighs per serving 8oz and 8 points? Just wondering if I input something wrong 

    • Hi Sally. The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”) which does not count fruits and vegetables in recipes in the calculations as they are now 0 points.

      The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting the fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, now you know why.

    • I think you might have entered “cooked” chicken thighs to get 8 points.
      However, 8 oz. of uncooked, boneless, skinless thighs are only 5 points on Blue.

  30. I made this for Super Bowl and it was awesome. My husband hates leftovers but what did we have for lunch today? That’s right. I have never tried a recipe from Skinnytaste that was not good and satisfying. Thank you.

  31. Can we use an Instant Pot or Oven for this recipe too?
    If so, what would be the cooking time for each version?
    Thank you much for posting, creating, visualizing, photographing and writing such amazing recipes.

  32. Looks absolutely gorgeous & very easy to make

  33. Best ever chicken thighs! Thank you for this superb recipe! I have made this at least a half a dozen times and never get tired of it. I serve it over instant pot brown jasmine rice and steamed broccoli. 

  34. Another winner!! Love love love this recipe. We marinated for about 8 hours and it was amazing! 

  35. We love this with some fresh steamed broccoli over rice. Better than take-out!

  36. I used 6 thighs, it took a little longer than the 14 minutes however I doubled the sauce ingredients and I had the perfect amount to reheat for additional sauce. Flavor was awesome! I recommend with some sort of rice and green beans!

  37. I fixed this for dinner tonight, I’ll I can say is WOW!  This is definitely a keeper. 

  38. Just got an air fryer for Christmas & this was the first recipe I made! Marinated the chicken overnight. It turned out so moist & juicy! Served with “fried” cauliflower rice & roasted sweet potatoes. I agree, it does need more sauce, next time I will double it, but otherwise a stellar recipe. My whole family devoured it. Kid approved!!

  39. I don’t have an air fryer. Can you give instructions on baking in oven?

  40. I could only find bone-in thighs, so cooked for ~6 minutes longer, but it turned out great and quite delicious!

  41. Loved this! Made the 8 thighs and marinated overnight. I agree with most and doubled the sauce. It was SO good!

  42. These were so good !!! 
    I used bone in thighs. I just added extra cooking minutes like it said in the previous comments and i also used a thermometer.  The sauce after was also very good. 
    I served it with spicy green been and cilantro lime rice. 
    Will definitely do again .. 

  43. This was good! I used all the marinade for the thighs (did 8 thighs) and made extra for sauce. Only marinated for an hour and it was still delicious!

  44. Made this tonight and it was delicious – and so easy. I’m not a big meat/poultry eater and have a tendency to overcook meat/poultry. The cooking time directions were such a help as were the comments. Based on the directions and comments I doubled the sauce (so good!) and shaved a couple minutes off the cooking time (because the thighs I had were on the small side). I stir fried some asparagus, made a pot of Jasmine rice and voila! a deconstructed stir fry. I will be making this dish regularly. TY Gina!

  45. I only marinated these for 2 hours and they came out so good! Wish I tried them sooner!

  46. I thought this was a great little recipe! I marinated the thighs overnight (only 4, I’m one person and didn’t want to be eating this for five days). Even with the reduced number of chicken breasts there could have been more sauce (for drizzling over veg and rice). It wasn’t that there wasn’t ENOUGH just, I wanted more so I do suggest doubling it, continuing with the 1/4 cup over the chicken for marinade and reserving the bulk of it for sauce. I did reduce it for quite a bit longer than instructed, I wanted it thicc. I will definitely be making this again, for how tasty it was it was quite easy and quick especially if you prep ahead. I will probably add more sriracha next time– I like a bit of heat and I thought that flavor really carried the marinade for me. I could see it being a bit lackluster without it. This went in the “keeper” pile!!

  47. This was a hit! I marinated the chicken overnight and doubled the glaze. I ended up baking it at 425 for 25-30 mins. Very good!

  48. Hmmm….all the reviews make it sound so good, but I don’t agree. It was just ok. I used 4 thighs instead of 8, and still didn’t seem to have enough sauce. Found the flavor to be pretty bland.

  49. So delicious!! Someone wrote it tastes like bourbon chicken in food courts and I completely agree! Going on my regular

  50. Can you provide an oven or instapot version? This looks delicious but I don’t have an air fryer.


  51. These were delectable!  I grilled them because the weather was perfect, but can’t wait to try them air fryer style once it cools down here!  Substituted Cholula for Sriracha and it was delish!

  52. These are so delicious! Reminded me of the bourbon chicken at mall food courts, which is a good thing. 🙂 Might double the sauce for next time. I know these would be good in the air fryer but we were already grilling a steak on the grill outside so threw the thighs out there as well.

  53. Absolutely delicious! I expected it to be good (I am constantly talking about the amazing food I make from this site), what I didn’t expect was for it to be such a standout dish. I added a little extra sriracha since I love it spicy and doubled the marinade.
    Next time, I’ll quadruple it – it’s that good. Thanks so much Gina!

  54. Bok Choy – I was looking for a recipe as well. I am Chinese and usually stir fry the bok choy. BUT some people turned me onto roasting it. I think that is how SkinnyTaste gets it brown. Try roasted bok choy, it is life-changing, but it does require the oven. I put it on the bottom rack of a 400 degree oven with just EVOO and salt for 10-15 min,. Here is a website:

    • I place the bok choy cut side down. I like to purchase the small baby bok choy from the asian food store. Dry your bok choy, maybe even use a salad spinner. For clarification, I don’t cover during the roasting process. I like the leaves to get crispy, similar to kale chips.

  55. I love this recipe. I’ve recently gone Keto, and this is marked for keto. But contains honey. Do you have a keto approved substitute for this recipe? It’s so delicious 

  56. Hi!  How do i do this in a regular oven? I have convection. Thank you!

  57. Hi! I have an Instant Pot Duo Crisp which has the air fryer capability. By frying in batches, does this mean don’t cook more than one layer of thighs at a time? The IP frying basket has a second shelf for more food; not sure if I can use it to cook all the thighs at one time? Thanks so much!

  58. EXCELLENT RECIPE!! It doesn’t matter if I doube or triple the recipe, my family knocks it out every time I make it! We have never had left-overs. My son said this his very favorite meal I prepare for the family. Also, it’s SUPER easy. The first time I made it I only marinated the chicken for 2 hours. It was still awesome. The next time we marinated over-night, and didn’t notice that much difference. We always make extra sauce after marinating the chicken so it can be used on whatever else we serve with the chicken.

  59. This was great!  I had to make this in two batches so I started my brown rice first, then made the first batch.  Then I put the first batch in the warming drawer while the second batch finished.  By the time my rice was done, all of the chicken was in the warming drawer.  Very tasty, the kids loved it. 

  60. Has anyone made this with chicken breast? We aren’t bone in meat people! I am going to give it a shoot in the air fryer tonight but curious for timing! 

    • We are going to try this tonight, but the recipe says boneless thighs, so no bone! Thighs have so much more flavor than breast, but everyone has their preference. 🙂

    • I made it with chicken breast tonight and it was awesome! I did the same amount of time. I actually think it could’ve done with 5-6 min on each side as opposed to 7 but I did cut my breast up into 3 pieces each. This was a wonderful recipe!

  61. I have a nu wave oven. Will that work the same? The recipe looks great!!

  62. Made it tonight and it came out good. Next time I’m doubling the marinade as half of it was not enough to make the sauce.

  63. I’m in self quarantine and do not have any fresh ginger.  Is there any  substitute?  Will it still taste ok without the ginger?  I have everything else!!

  64. Made them for dinner tonight. Very tasty! Thanks for another great recipe!

  65. This is a keeper! Instead of air frying I seared one side in a cast iron skillet for 2 minutes then baked at 400 for 16 minutes and it was perfect. Also doubled the marinade/sauce because my husband always loves extra .

  66. What are the black seeds used for garnishing?

    I see mention of sesame seeds (light colored) but there are also some black seeds used in the recipe photo. What are those?

    • You can get “tuxedo” sesame seeds that is the black seeds you see. Which I am a sesame seed lover and personally prefer the mix to just the regular white sesame seed…different flavors go well with the dark ends of the chicken

  67. I only have bone-in thighs, will it still work?  I sooooo want to try this recipe.

    • Janet, Did you ever cook those bone-in thighs?  That is all I have and I was wondering how long you cooked them if you did.  Thanks!

  68. I love these chicken thighs! DELISH! Tender, juicy, and crispy in the air fryer! One of our absolute favorite skinnytaste recipe!

  69. do you cook it the same if you use breasts?

  70. Followed the recipe exactly. Loved the end results. Thighs were tender and juicy. I had stir fry vegetables using 1 teaspoon of olive oil.
    Will be on our menu once a week.

  71. I don’t have an Air Fryer, so I used my Slowcooker. I trimmed the thighs, put them in the SC, poured the sauce over and cooked on low for 5 hrs. Then made a cornstarch slurry and mixed it in. Turned up Slowcooker to high for 20 min to thicken sauce… it was out of the world DELICIOUS , and Soooo easy! Thank you Gina for this wonderful recipe….

  72. Came out nice and juicy in the air fryer!

  73. Does anyone know how to make the bok choy? I just noticed my original comment was deleted asking the same… weird.

    • Had the same question (how to prepare the bok choy). I see it’s been asked before but not yet answered.

      I found this video helpful

      • I made this dish tonight. I was SO surprised how juicy the chicken was. Not what I expected out of an air fryer.

        I used a chili infused balsamic vinegar I picked up at craft fest (yay! FINALLY a use for it 1.5 years on) with a little sambal oelek instead of sriracha. My 17 year old loved it. Just enough heat but not too much to keep grabbing for a drink to quench.

        I prepared the bok choy in cast iron and oh MAN did it smoke, although, the smoke detector never went off despite the fog in the house, and, it came out quite delicious. The vegetable selective 17 year old thought it was great.

        “Not a bad dish, Dad. Even with the weird new vegetable. I’d eat this again.”

        That’s a thumbs up in my book.

      • Your sons comment made me legit LOL!!! 
        I will now endeavor to use that “weird vegetable” myself!!

    • I love this bok choy recipe I found, it’s my go to

      • Thanks for sharing the Bok Choy recipe. I read & re-read this blog & recipe looking for a link or something about the Bok Choy thinking I had missed it. Most appreciated!

  74. Anything I can use instead of Balsamic vinegar? One of my kids can’t have any vinegar. Thanks

  75. Thanks!
    I was wondering if the recipe translated best to pan cooking or baking.
    Looks like it takes both!

  76. I absolutely LOVE this recipe. Making for my second time. Cannot wait. Whole family was happy, and that’s saying alot. Also, very easy.

  77. So good! I forgot to split the sauce so I would have some to reduce, but really it was fantastic without it. My Chicken pieces were not each that big so I reduced time by a few minutes. Love thighs they can get really “done” and still be tender, Great recipe.

  78. would it be okay to use apple cider vinegar? I hate vinegar, but I hate anything balsamic MORE lol

  79. A winner! So flavorful. Kids and adults alike enjoyed. Quick, and the meat was so juicy. Thank you!

  80. This was FANTASTIC, my husband went nuts over it. I made it as written with the exception of the sriracha sauce, I didn’t have any so I substituted a pinch of red pepper flakes. Next time, I will double the marinade recipe because the reserved sauce is so good, you will want it for your rice!

    15 mins at a preheated 400 was perfect, turned it twice, sprayed with olive oil on each side but I’m not sure that would be necessary. Really an easy and fast recipe, thank you!

  81. This evening I made “AIR FRYER ASIAN-GLAZED BONELESS CHICKEN THIGHS”. In my freezer I found a bag of frozen Asian vegetable mix. I stir-fried them with a little onion and garlic and near the end added a little of the glaze sauce from the chicken thigh recipe. This was a very yummy dinner!
    I would make this again. A hit!

  82. I’d love to be able to fix this & several other of your recipes, but since I cook for only one person it’s sometimes difficult to cut the ingredients down. Is there a way you could reduce the number of servings in the recipe? I have seen other recipes where you can do it.

  83. How do you prepare the Bok Choy? This looks amazing!!

  84. I entered all the ingredients into MyFitnessPal to log but I keep getting 325 calories per servings (2 thighs) and I’m only using 27oz chicken thighs vs. your recipe calling for 32oz. Am I doing something wrong here?

  85. I used this marinade on a pork tenderloin overnight, then grilled it. Delicious!

  86. Thank you for such an amazing an easy recipe. I don’t cook a lot but I’m trying to do more with my air fryer. This was super easy and the chicken thighs came out juicy and tender. I doubled the glaze recipe which was the perfect amount. I was afraid the remaking marinade would cook down to nothing as there wasn’t that much left. Look forward to more air fryer recipe.

  87. I  made this recipe with 4 chicken thighs opposed to 8 chicken thighs. I also made this recipe in the crockpot opposed to the air fryer. I didn’t have any fresh ginger but I threw all of the ingredients (without the fresh ginger) into the crockpot and cooked it on low for 5 hours. My husband loved it and told me I’m more than welcome to make it once a week!  He loved it! I thought it was great too!  

  88. Hello! So I do not have an air fryer and was wondering how I could modify this for the oven! Thanks!

    • Also would like to know this…. has anybody cooked this in the oven? Temp? Time?

    • You could just Google amount of time and temp for chicken thighs and you would get hundreds of answers. I would also look up temperature the meat needs to be cooked at. Your meat thermometer is the best bet for meat being done.

  89. This recipe is the best. This is my second time making it. I almost forgot the sesame seedsthis time  cause they aren’t mentioned in the recipe.   The first time I made it I used the sesame because I saw them in the picture. I also happen to love them. It would be great if you could edit and add that maybe? I will remember next time though. I also add half the juice of an orange.  Probably will make extra marinade next time because it’s so good. Thank you. I will look for your cookbook. It’s fun learning how to use an air fryer. 

  90. Delicious! Easy to make. Served with rice and orange cauliflower. Chicken warmed in oven while we air fried cauliflower and made your orange sauce (orange chicken). Love your air fryer! Currently my favorite appliance! Right now, a chicken is marinating in buttermilk for tomorrow’s air fryer delight!

  91. These are amazing! Came out crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The marinade made the chicken super flavorful.  I served mine with jasmine rice and sugar snap peas. Will be adding to my normal rotation!

  92. This is marked as keto-friendly, but when I put it in my carb manager app, it shows as 8g net carbs. Is there a way to cut the carb content in the marinade?

  93. Delicious! The chicken thighs cooked perfectly in the air fryer with these directions. I marinated them for 6 hours. I used squeeze ground ginger – did not have fresh. The green onions added nice flavor and crunch.
    This will be a regular dinner in my house and definitely special enough for guests while being easy to make.

  94. Amazing! I used chicken breasts because I misread the recipe and they turned out soooo good! Made some bok choy and ride with mine just like the image. So good I’m making it again two nights later. Definitely a keeper!

  95. When I try to cook the remaining marinade, it doesn’t thicken. Tried twice now, and it remains very liquid. Any suggestions to thicken it ?

  96. I made this last night and it was really good!  I do not have an air fryer, so I cooked mine on the BBQ.  I followed the recipe for the marinade exactly.  Next time, I would add a little more sriracha and maybe add some sesame oil.  I did not save any marinade to reduce and baste the chicken, but I will definitely do that next time.  I had a lot of chicken to marinade this time, so didn’t pull any out to use that way.  

  97. I have used this marinade three times on various cuts of chicken and it is truly yummy! My husband chose to grill them outside instead of use the air fryer and he was impressed that it did not flame up like the other marinades I have used with oil in them. It’s a keeper for us! Thanks!

  98. This is my 2nd time making this! The first time a few weeks ago was a hit! There were NO leftovers! All my kids ate it and asked for seconds! Only thing I did diff was double the marinade as I like it extra “wet” I’m sure that added some points but oh well! It was worth it!! 

  99. Excellent, the Skinny Taste air fryer performed perfectly, timing just right. I was wondering if the weight is the raw weight and cooked would be about 6 ounces for the calorie count? I did use the sesame seed garnish and we will look forward to having them again. Loved it. Thank you.

  100. Is there a replacement for the sugar in this recipe? I’m doing a no sugar no fat diet. This recipe sounds amazing.

  101. Yum! I made this without the sriracha and still good!  I seared them on a hot cast iron skillet on one side until caramelized then flipped them over and put the whole thing in the oven at 350 for 20 min for those of you who don’t have an air fryer! 

  102. This was really good. I made 6 thighs for my family of four but that didn’t turn out to be enough. The whole family enjoyed it. My 6to son kept saying how good it was and he ate all of his and half of one of mine. Served with caulk rice and green beans. Will definitely make again. It only took 20 minutes to throw the whole meal together after work since the meat had been marinating all day.

  103. This looks great, but I only like chicken breasts. The flavors sound delicious. I’m going to try this in a crock pot with chicken breasts and perhaps double the sauce so there’s enough liquid. I don’t have an air fryer yet so that’s why I’m going to use the crock pot. Any tips on going forward with this preparation? Thanks so much!

  104. When you are using an air frier, could you please also include instructions for more conventional cooking methods? I have a very tiny kitchen with absolutely no space for any appliances besides a toaster. Nor do I have the resources to purchase any new appliances. Everything I cook is done on top of the stove, in the oven or grilled outdoors on my charcoal grill. My multicooker is stored on top of a free standing cabinet and my microwave is stored inside another cabinet. We are talking a tiny kitchen. The area used for drying dishes has to be cleared before I start cooking!

    • Look up her Asian Glazed Drumsticks which were done long before the air fryer craze. We’ve enjoyed them for years and substituted thighs for convenience. Delish!!

    • You can grill these or pan sear and bake them all the same.

  105. Was this enough sauce? 

    • I double it and place half in a sealed container to use as extra for when grillling the chicken and to boil down as a glaze as suggested. I just don’t like to use leftover marinade that has set in raw chicken for more than 24 hours. Plus my kids like to add the marinade to their rice and even dip their dumplings in it.

  106. This was good on the grill. Thank you!

  107. I made this tonight and it was a huge hit.  How would I adjust the cooking time for breasts instead of thighs?

  108. I made this dish last night.  It came out perfect, looking just like the pictures!  I had all the main ingredients  on hand, but picked up spring onions & sesame seeds on my way home just for fun and presentation.  While they aren’t necessary to complete the dish, I liked the added onion taste and with the sesame seeds they made the finished dish look a dish you’d get in a restaurant!

     We really enjoyed it and I will definitely make it again.  Love the easy clean up of air fryers.  

  109. Saw this on Instagram this AM as I was looking for a way to cook my chicken thighs for tonight.
    I used bone-in thighs because it’s what I had. Super easy and very tasty. Thanks. 

  110.  I marinaded the chicken over 24 hours. Since it was a beautiful day out, we decided to cook these on the grill instead of the air fryer. A wonder combination of flavors in this marinade. Everyone raved over it and even my picky daughter who swears she hates chicken liked it. The only sad thing was that there were no leftovers😢.  Thanks Gina!

  111. I made this tonight. I have no air fryer so I fired up the BBQ. Super yummy

  112. I made this last night and it was delicious & easy! Definitely will be making again.
    Thank you,

  113. I accidently bought bone in chicken thighs, how will that change the cooking time?

  114. First of all, I was so excited when I got the skinny taste air fryer off my wedding registry! I came across this recipe and decided to give it a shot … it was SO GOOD. It was amazingly juicy and flavorful. Served it with cauliflower rice and Asian cole slaw. I sprayed the bottom of the fryer as well as the basket with a little olive oil and cleanup was a breeze! I’m totally hooked on this appliance and looking forward to trying more of your air fryer recipes! 

  115. No oven directions for this recipe GINA?

  116. hi, how long in the oven?

  117. This inspired me to buy the air fryer but I could not wait for it to make so I did this in the oven.  Loved it and cannot wait to remake when my air fryer arrives! For the bok choy, I cut each one in half and heated a little oil, ginger and garlic in a pan, waited a few minutes to brown them added 2 tablespoons of water to steam the rest. It complemented the marinade very well and kept it healthy. I also bought a mister for olive oil from home goods to keep oil levels down. The air fryer is reinvigorating me for a new batch of cooking and bought the cookbook too!!!! Fun!

  118. These are now my very favorite! Delicious!!!!!

  119. I made these tonight, and they were delicious!  My kids (ages 6 & 9) even loved them!  Next time, I’ll marinate them longer (I only did 2 hours this time), and add more Sriacha, or maybe even some garlic chili paste, to boost the spice.a bit.  I accidentally bought bone-in, skinless, thighs, so I cooked them an additional 5 minutes, and checked their temp with my insta-read thermometer. They were a perfect 165°, so I pulled them out. Thanks to someone else’s comment about clean up being difficult, I spritzed .the bottom of my air fryer (Nu-Wave) with a bit of olive oil before adding and cooking the thighs, which definitely helped. Another great recipe, Gina! ❤️

  120. I had an impromptu gathering of preteen and teen boys at my house tonight and didn’t expect them to even try the chicken. I was wrong!! They all loved it and some of them even had a second serving! I was very glad I had doubled the recipe! This one is a keeper for sure!!

  121. This was awesome! The entire family gave 2 thumbs up.

  122. I made these tonight and followed the recipe to a T. I think the only thing I would change next time is maybe leave them in a minute or two longer so they have more of the yummy black crispness on the outside. 

  123. Made this tonight and it was absolutely delicious!  I made a few adjustments to the recipe. I didn’t have ginger or Siracha so I used ginger juice and Tabasco sauce in the measurements called for in the recipe. I also left the skin on the thighs. My husband had a rough day at work delaying him over 3 hours in coming home.  But when he finally walked in the door at the end of his day, within 20 minutes he was enjoying this delicious meal served with snap peas and roasted cauliflower rice.  Definitely one for the meal rotation!  Thank you, Gina!  You always knock it outta the park, ALWAYS!!

  124. Absolutely the tastiest Chicken recipe. I love to cook it for the drinks, when I am with my friends.

  125. You weren’t kidding about how juicy these thighs are in an air Fryer… who knew?? And the spice flavoring was amazing. Thank you! 

  126. These are beyond AMAZING. Simple ingredients, easy to make with outstanding results. The best chicken I have eaten in many, many years. Caution, the sticky sauce makes cleaning the air fryer difficult as it seems to bake onto the very bottom of the fryer under the layer that holds the food. It took many hours of soaking in very hot sudsy water to clean but so worth the effort because these are so marvelous. Next time I might try some cooking spray at the very bottom of the fryer.

  127. The ingredients in this aren’t keto, was this misplaced into the wrong catergory?

  128. Hi Gina,
    Looks delish!  How did you make the Bok Choy?  It looks so good.

  129. I accidentally bone in thighs, how would I adjust the cook time?

  130. Love this recipe, cooks nicely in the air fryer…

  131. The whole plate in the picture looks amazing. Do you have a recipe or guidelines for the bok choy that is pictured?

  132. Looks like another great recipe! Would I need to adjust the cooking time and temperature for the Cuisinart style air fryer? A huge thanks to you for including the temp adjustment in the Air Fryer cookbook!  

  133. Dying for your Air Fryer to be released in Canada so I can try this!

  134. Gina, I would like to use bone in, skiness chicken thighs. Will this change the points value? I know I will need to adjust the cooking time.

  135. This sounds delish. I don’t have an air fryer. Would it work on the grill or in a 425 oven?

  136. I don’t have an air fryer but would love to try this in the oven. Do you think just add a couple minutes to the cooking time? Thanks! 

  137. Marinated the chicken thighs for 2 hours and cooked in my airfryer. Delicious! I have the leftovers for lunch and I am looking forward to it! Thanks for the recipe!

  138. Looks fabulous, but have you considered switching to Coconut Aminos instead of Soy sauce? Many studies support soy products in any form are not healthy choices for woman as they get gracefully age. 

  139. Have all your books, love seeing recipes on Facebook. But only view Facebook on phone, so usually email your recipes to my phone to save and print. No longer an option to email recipes to myself. Why have you eliminated this option?

  140. This looks so yummy can’t wait to try it. As I do not have an air fryer will probably try it on the bbq

  141. Hi Gina,

    Will this work with chicken or turkey breast instead of thighs? Thanks!

  142. This looks amazing-can’t wait to try in my skinnytaste vremi air fryer! Do you have a recipe for the bok choy that you made with the chicken?

  143. My husband really dislikes thigh meat. Do you think this would works with breast meat?
