  • Air Fryer



  • In a small bowl combine the tamari, stevia, garlic, sriracha, ginger and salt and mix well.
  • Add the chicken thighs to a zip top bag and pour the marinade over top. Shake and coat thoroughly.
  • Marinate in the fridge for 1-2 hours, or as long as overnight.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400°F for two minutes. Remove the chicken from the marinade and transfer to the air fryer basket, skin side up.
  • Cook in batches if necessary for 14 minutes, turning halfway until cooked through in the center. If you prefer a crispy skin (like we do!) flip the chicken thighs over when there is 2-3 minutes remaining so the skin is face up.
  • If making the glaze: Meanwhile, pour the marinade from the bag into a small sauce pan, and cook over medium heat for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the xanthan gum and whisk until fully Incorporated and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until sauce has reduced and thickened. Remove from heat and transfer to a small bowl.
  • Place the cooked thighs onto a plate and if desired top with the glaze or serve alongside.
  • Best stored in an air tight container in the fridge up to 5 days.
  • Note: If you want to up the fat on this recipe you can add 1/4 cup avocado oil to the marinade recipe!
