  • 8 boneless, skinless, chicken thighs
  • ½ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • sesame seeds, for garnish, optional
  • chopped green onions, for garnish, optional


  • In a mixing bowl whisk together soy sauce, honey, garlic, ketchup, parsley, and oregano; whisk until completely incorporated.
  • Reserve 1/4-cup of the marinade in a small bowl and set aside for later. Pour remaining marinade in a large bowl.
  • Add chicken to the marinade; cover and marinate for 30 minutes, or up to 8 hours. Refrigerate if not planning to cook the chicken within 2 hours.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400˚F.
  • Remove chicken from marinade and transfer 4 chicken thighs to the air fryer; you’ll have to cook in batches.
  • Cook for 8 minutes; flip the chicken over and continue to cook for 6 more minutes. Remove and set aside.
  • Continue with the rest of the chicken.
  • In the meantime, pour the reserved sauce in a small pan or pot and cook over medium low heat for about 2 minutes, or until it thickens and it’s slightly reduced.
  • Remove chicken from air fryer and transfer to a plate.
  • Brush warm glaze over chicken.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.
  • Serve.
