1 lb chicken thighs with skin on

1 tbsp regular soy sauce

1 tbsp oyster sauce

1 tbsp honey ((or sub with brown or white sugar))

1/2 tbsp sesame oil

1 tsp dark soy sauce

1 tsp shaoxing wine ((or sub with Dry Sherry Wine))

1 tsp ginger (grated)

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp white pepper ((or sub with black pepper))

1/4 tsp sesame seeds

1 tbsp green onions (finely chopped)


Debone your chicken thighs by carefully making slits around the bone until it can be removed. Transfer chicken thighs into a large bowl.

Add Marinade ingredients into the bowl and massage into chicken until well coated. Marinate for at least 15 minutes or overnight for best flavour.

Spray air fryer basket with neutral oil or cooking spray. Alternative Option: line only the base of the basket with a square piece of parchment paper. Make sure your parchment paper is not touching the hot elements of the air fryer. The latter makes clean up easier.

Place chicken thighs in the basket in a flat single layer and skin side up. Do not overlap. You may need to air fry in two batches depending on how many thighs you can fit without overlapping.

Air fry for 9-10 minutes at 375 degrees F or until you reach an internal temperature of 165 F and skin is browned to your liking. No need to flip halfway.

Optional: Remove the cooked chicken and slice it into pieces. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.
