Chicken thighs are so juicy and flavorful, even baked in the oven. These Asian Glazed Chicken thighs produce the best juices when you cook them, it creates the best tasting sauce. I absolutely love the way these taste out of the air fryer it leaves such a nice crisp exterior and keeps juicy inside. If you don’t have an airy fryer you could also make these in the oven or stovetop too!
