The Air Fryer Soy Sauce Chicken is air fried until golden brown and crispy, yet still tender and juicy. The combination of soy sauce and a few other pantry staples provides the perfect Asian-inspired flavor that's both sweet, tangy, and savory.

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 2-4 1x



5-6 pieces boneless chicken thighs (use whatever chicken cut you want)

1" ginger (julienned)

1 tbsp garlic (minced)

2 stalks of green onions

2 tbsp honey

2 tbsp dark soy sauce

1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce

1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp sambal oelek (garlic chili paste) - optional


  1. Prep your ingredients. Julienne the ginger. Minced the garlic. Slice the green onions.
