Air fryer chicken thighs

Air fryer chicken thighs are a delicious and easy-to-make dish. Here’s a simple recipe for crispy and flavorful air fryer chicken thighs:


  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 5 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, dried thyme, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper to create a spice rub.
  3. Pat the chicken thighs dry with paper towels. Rub the spice mixture over both sides of each chicken thigh.
  4. Drizzle the olive oil over the chicken thighs and rub it evenly to coat them.
  5. Place the seasoned chicken thighs in the air fryer basket, making sure they are not overcrowded. You may need to cook them in batches if your air fryer has a smaller capacity.
  6. Cook the chicken thighs in the air fryer at 400°F (200°C) for 25-30 minutes. Flip the thighs halfway through the cooking time to ensure even crispiness.
  7. The chicken thighs are done when they reach an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) and the skin is crispy and golden brown.
  8. Once done, remove the chicken thighs from the air fryer and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
  9. Serve the air fryer chicken thighs with your favorite sides, such as roasted vegetables, rice, or a salad.

Enjoy your crispy and flavorful air fryer chicken thighs! Adjust the cooking time as needed based on the size and thickness of the chicken thighs and the specific model of your air fryer.
