Expert Advice for the Best Air-Fried Chicken Thighs

  • To achieve a deeper taste, marinate the chicken for a longer time. If time is of the essence, you can marinate for as little as 30 minutes, but I suggest at least an hour. Or, for a rich, robust outcome, up to 24 hours.
  • Experiment with the glaze’s constituent ratios to see what works best for your palate. For example, use more garlic for more zing or less soy sauce for a sweeter finish. Instead of measuring out the spices exactly, you can season your marinade to taste.
  • To make sure the brown sugar chicken is safe to eat, cook it according to temperature instead of time. Make sure the chicken is cooked to 165 degrees Fahrenheit.


  1. Four six-ounce chicken thighs, skin on or off
  2. 1/3 cup soy sauce for a brown sugar glaze
  3. One-fourth cup brown sugar
  4. One tablespoon each of honey and olive oil
  5. One spoonful of vinegar made from apple cider
  6. One tsp of dried basil
  7. Two tablespoons of fresh or bottle-fresh minced garlic
  8. 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  9. One tsp salt
  10. half a teaspoon of pepper, black


  • To begin, pour the soy sauce into a sizable mixing basin.
  • Add the brown sugar after that.
  • To the mixing bowl, add the garlic, apple cider vinegar, honey, and olive oil. Mix thoroughly after adding the spices.
  • Then add your chicken into the marinade, then chill for about an hour.
  • After an hour or so, add the chicken to the air fryer basket.
  • Set your time for 8 minutes at 360 degrees. After 8 minutes, flip the chicken thighs and add 6 minutes to the time.
  • Check your chicken before you remove it from the air fryer basket. It needs to reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  • After your chicken is fully cooked, remove from the air fryer basket.
  • Plate, serve, and enjoy!
