  • 12 oz boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic about 3 cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp paprika divided
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup unsalted chicken broth
  • 3 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp ginger cut into matchsticks then minced
  • 1 tsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tsp mirin
  • 1 1/2 tsp sriracha
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • 6 oz snow peas
  • 1 tbsp white sesame toasted
  • 2 tbsp scallion finely chopped
  • 3 cups cooked medium-grain rice


  • Rub 12 oz chicken with 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp garlic, 1/2 tsp paprika, and 1/2 tsp garlic powder.
    step 1: Rub chicken with oil and seasonings.
  • Shape a foil sheet into a baking tray (like so), and place it in the air fryer. Place the seasoned chicken into the tray, and cook at 400°F for 15 minutes.
    step 2: Make a baking tray out of foil, and place in the air fryer. Add the chicken and cook.
  • In the meantime, mix together 1/4 cup chicken broth, 3 tbsp soy sauce, 2 tsp cornstarch, 1 tbsp sesame oil, 1 tsp ginger, 1 tsp hoisin sauce, 1 tsp mirin, 1 1/2 tsp sriracha, 1/2 tsp brown sugar, and the remaining paprika (1/2 tsp.) Set aside.
    step 3: Mix the sauce and set aside.
  • Place 6 oz snow peas into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave on medium for 3 minutes. Carefully remove the wrap and shock them in cold water, to keep them crisp and green.
    step 4: Microwave (or steam) the snow peas.
  • Once the chicken’s done, gently pour the sauce on top and cook for another 5 minutes at the same temperature.
    step 5: Add the sauce to the chicken tray and cook for some more to thicken.
  • Sprinkle on top 1 tbsp sesame and 2 tbsp chopped scallions. Serve with 3 cups of cooked rice and cooked snow peas.
    step 6: Serve it all with cooked rice.
