Recipe Notes

  • You can use bone-in, skin-on thighs. Just increase the cooking time a few minutes on each side and start with the skin side down.
  • Internal temperature of chicken should be 165 degrees F when done.
  • This recipe can easily be doubled for four servings.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 380 degrees F for 5 minutes. In a medium bowl place chicken thighs and spices. Use clean hands to coat them.
  2. After preheating spray the air fryer with nonstick cooking spray and place seasoned chicken inside.
  3. Cook on 380 degrees F for 16 to 18 minutes, turning over halfway through.
