This spicy air fried chicken recipe will knock your socks off. It can be either done in the oven or air fried. Personally, I prefer it air fried as it adds that extra crisp charred taste and appearance.

  • 1/4 cup Olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Honey
  • 1/3 cup Low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha
  • 1/2 small Lime juice, squeezed
  • 1 Thumb size ginger, grated
  • 2 cloves Garlic, grated
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Sesame seeds
  • 1 Green onion, sliced
  • 1 kilogram Chicken legs and thighs
  1. Add the olive oil, honey, soy sauce, sriracha, lime, ginger, garlic, and pepper to a measuring cup. Mix until well combined.

  2. Add the chicken to a bowl and pour 1/2 of the sauce over. Message the marinate into the meat, cover with cling wrap, place in the fridge, and allow it to marinate for about 30 minutes. You can also marinate it over night which is really the best.

  3. Remove the chicken from the marinate and place in the air fryer or on an oven rack. Air fry at 400 F or 200 C for 20 - 25 minutes. Oven bake for 30 to 40.

  4. Add the remaining marinate to a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Stir and simmer for a few minutes until the sauce begins to thicken. 

  5. Remove the chicken from the air fryer or oven, plate, and spoon the sauce over the top. 

  6. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions. Serve and enjoy your juicy, spicy baked chicken.
