  • Pat chicken thighs dry with a paper towel and brush the skin-side of each piece with olive oil. Place chicken thighs, skin-side down, in a single layer on a plate.

  • Combine smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a bowl and sprinkle half the seasoning mixture evenly over the 4 chicken thighs. Turn thighs over and evenly sprinkle remaining seasoning mixture on top. Place chicken thighs in the air fryer basket in a single layer, skin-side up.

  • Fry in the preheated air fryer until chicken is brown and juices run clear, about 18 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

This was the first thing I cooked in my new Air Fryer. It's easy and the seasonings stay on the meat. It does need to cook longer then the recipe says but it could be the size of the thighs that took longer to cook. Read More

Great recipe! Fast and easy. The chicken was a tad overcooked at 18 minute maybe due to my use of skinless maybe because I only buy skinless thighs - I'll play around with the time. However even at 175 internal temp the chicken was moist and tender. The spices are pretty close to perfect it would be a challenge to find any better. Read More

I used bbq sauce instead of the seasonings listed in the recipe. This was the first time using the air fryer for chicken thighs. I think the basket was too close to the top and blackened the skin way before cooking the middle of the chicken. In the future I think I will bake at least half of the time first and then maybe the last 7-10 minutes switch to the air fryer option. Read More

Yummy! I added olive oil and crushed garlic. I cooked 2 at a time for 9 minutes then turn them over. I cooked extra to make chicken salad. Moist and delicious- a definite keeper. Read More

I made this dish in my air fryer and it turned out great! I marinated the chicken (chicken thighs bone in and with skin) for about 24 hours put it in the air fryer (my first time using one) and it came out great. No fuss and no mess. I'll definitely make this again. Delicious! Read More

Great base for cooking the chicken. Just a note only the small pieces cooked in 18 min. The large ones I had to pierce the bottom of and cook 3-5 more minutes. Though the temp read 165 degrees they were still pink and bloody. Read More

This recipe turned out great. I had boneless skinless chicken thighs. So I didn't get the crispy skin. It tasted very good. Tender and juicy. My family enjoyed it too. I will make it again. Read More
