Deliciously seasoned chicken thighs cooked to crispy, juicy perfection in just 12 minutes. Cooking chicken thighs in the air fryer is so quick, easy and easy to clean up! The chicken comes out perfectly juicy, every time. 



  • 4 chicken thighs (skinless and boneless)
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp smoked or sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • Optional hot spice of choice (I don’t eat spicy food, so add what you like here!)


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 180C for 5 minutes.
  2.  Cut thighs in half.
  3. Add seasoning and chicken thighs to a large zip-top bag or a bowl with a lid and toss to coat.
  4. After pre-heating your air fryer dish, spray with cooking spray.
  5. Place 4 of the chicken thigh halves in the air fryer, and cook at 180C for 6 minutes.
  6. Turn and cook for 6 minutes more. Check and cook for longer if needed. Thighs are done when an internal meat thermometer reads 75C.
  7. Remove thighs and keep warm (I use my thermoserver)
  8. Repeat with remaining thighs.
  9. Serve with side of choice. We usually have steamed green veggies.
