Equipment

  • air fryer

Ingredients

  • 1.75 lb bone-in skin-on chicken thighs I used 4 small ones
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • nonstick spray

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine all of the spices including 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper. Mix well.
  • Pat dry the chicken on both sides with a paper towel and spray the air fryer basket with nonstick spray. 
  • Pour the olive oil all over the chicken thighs and season the chicken with the spice blend. 
  • Spread the chicken thighs on a single layer and season the skin lightly with a little extra salt and pepper. 
  • Place the chicken thighs skin-side down in the air fryer basket and cook for 10 minutes at 370 degrees F. 
  • Once the 10 minutes are up, flip the chicken over and cook for an additional 10 minutes. Finally, increase the temperature to 400 degrees F and cook for 2 minutes. Keep in mind that I used four small chicken thighs. Make sure to cook the chicken until the inside reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Enjoy!

Notes

  • The chicken was cooked for a total of 22 minutes. Keep in mind that I used small chicken thighs. Make sure to cook the chicken until the inside reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. 
  • I used a 7 qt air fryer.
