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)

My favorite chicken thigh marinade


I absolutely love marinating and cooking with beer. I’ve made so many greatrecipes with it – braised beef, beer chili, beer brats, beer dip, slow cookerbeef tacos. It’s such an easy way to add flavor to a recipe, and it’snaturally acidic so it’s perfect for tenderizing meat.This marinade uses beer as it’s base, just like my grilled chicken drumsticks,I’ve instead of lemon and rosemary, I used balsamic vinegar, Worcestershiresauce, BBQ dry rub. The flavor is intense, and so so good. I know you’re goingto love it.If you don’t want to use beer in this recipe, you could substitute it with asoda. Root beer or Dr. Pepper would be great with the rest of theseingredients. I think ginger ale would work really well, too.
