Air Fryer Chicken Thighs
Crispy, tender and juicy chicken thighs that are seasoned and made in an Air Fryer!
- 4 skin-on bone-in chicken thighs
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- ½ tsp sea salt
- ¼ tsp ground black pepper
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp smoked paprika
- ⅛ tsp chili powder
- ½ tsp onion powder
Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.
In a small bowl combine all the rub ingredients.
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.
Sprinkle rub mixture evenly over the chicken thighs. Turn the 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.
Cook in an air fryer 18-22 minutes or until the juices run clean and the center reads 185-190 degrees F.
- Technically the internal temperature needs to be 165 degrees F, but I find that there are no bloody spots around the bones if you cook it a little longer and the chicken falls off the bone tender and juicy.
