Recipe Notes


* The cooking times stated above are for our air fryer chicken thighs that weigh about 6 to 8-ounce each. * The nutritional facts are also for bone-in, skin-on thighs. Boneless thighs will have less calories and fat. * You may use a slice or a good piece of bread the under the basket to absorb the grease from the chicken thighs and so reducing the amount of smoking while cooking the chicken.STORAGE:Store air fried chicken thighs in an airtight container in the fridge for upto 3-4 days. If you don’t mind the skin-on chicken thighs to lose somecrispness, you may freeze them for up to 3 months. It is one of those easyfreezer meals that you will want to make again and again.Reheat them in a preheated air fryer at 390°F/200°C for about 3 minutes(boneless) or 5 minutes (bone-in), or until crispy and heated through.

Instructions


* Boneless skinless thighs: Preheat air fryer to 390°F (200°C). Use preferably thawed chicken and pat dry them very well. * Place chicken thighs on a plate and then spray on both sides with non stick spray (or lightly brush with olive oil). * Stir together the seasonings and sprinkle over the chicken, pressing on with your hands to get it to stick. Then flip the thighs and repeat the process. * Place two chicken thighs in the basket of the air fryer. They must be spread out (and not curled up). If your air fryer has a large basket, you may cook 4 thighs at once. Cook for 5 minutes. * Then flip them and cook for 4-5 more minutes or until a digital thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 160°-165°F. If you are cooking them from frozen, cook for 10-12 minutes, then flip and cook for more 10-12 minutes. * Remove the chicken from the air fryer, cover, and let rest for 5 minutes before serving. * Bone-in, skin-on thighs: To make this air fryer chicken thighs recipe, preheat air fryer to 390°F (200°C). Only use thawed chicken thighs and pat them dry very well. Although you can use frozen thighs, the skin won’t get as crispy! But if you don’t care about crispness, it will take about double of the time to cook compared to thawed chicken. * Place chicken thighs on a plate and then spray on both sides with non stick spray (or lightly brush with olive oil). * Stir together the seasonings and sprinkle over the chicken, pressing on with your hands to get the seasoning to stick. Then flip the thighs and repeat the process. * Place two chicken thighs in the basket of the air fryer skin side down (fat will render without browning too much). If your air fryer has a large basket, you may cook 4 thighs at once. Do not overlap them! Cook for 10-12 minutes. * Then flip them and cook for 8-10 more minutes or until a digital thermometer inserted into the thickest part (do not let touch the bone) reads 160°-165°F. * Remove the chicken from the air fryer, cover, and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Here’s what you’ll need to make these chicken thighs: * Chicken Thighs – I’m using five bone-in skin on chicken thighs for this recipe. If you have a larger air fryer, you can add more, but make sure they’re in a single layer for even cooking. * Spices – This recipe uses simple spices: paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper. * Cooking Oil – I used melted coconut oil for this recipe, but you could also use grapeseed oil, avocado oil or any cooking oil you have already at home.”
