Air fryer chicken thighs are also very fragrant!



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 salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Optional: Fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary for garnish




Start by preheating your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for about 5 minutes.
While the air fryer is preheating, pat the chicken thighs dry with paper towels. This helps to ensure that the skin gets crispy during cooking.
In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper to make a seasoning mixture.
Rub the seasoning mixture all over the chicken thighs, making sure to coat them evenly.
Place the chicken thighs in the air fryer basket with the skin side facing up. Make sure they are not overcrowded, and there is some space between them for proper air circulation.
Cook the chicken thighs in the preheated air fryer at 375°F (190°C) for 25-30 minutes. You may want to check the internal temperature of the chicken using a meat thermometer. The chicken is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
About halfway through cooking, you can flip the chicken thighs to ensure even cooking and crispiness on both sides. Be gentle when flipping to avoid damaging the skin.
Once the chicken thighs are cooked to perfection and have a crispy skin, remove them from the air fryer.
Let the chicken thighs rest for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary if desired.
