How long to cook chicken thighs in the air fryer?
The time will depend on the following factors: * The weight/size of your chicken thighs: larger thighs take more time to cook. The reason why is important that you choose pieces with similar size/weight. You don’t want to either undercook or overcook them! * The temperature that you cook them in the air fryer: The highest the temperature, the quickest to cook. If they are skin-on, they will get crispier too especially if you air fry them skin side down first. It will render the fat without browning too much while sealing the juices in. * Whether they are boneless or bone-in: for example, at 390° F (220° C) thawed 6-ounce boneless chicken thighs take about 8-10 minutes to cook; while bone-in 6 to 8-ounce thighs take around 18-22 minutes. * Whether the thighs are frozen or thawed: frozen chicken thighs take about double the time to cook compared to defrosted thighs. In either case, chicken is ready when it reaches an internal temp of 160°-165° F (71°-74° C)
