How to make Air Fried Chicken Thighs
Be sure to see the recipe card below for full ingredients & instructions!
- Oil and season the chicken thighs.
- Place in the air fryer basket to cook.
- Flip halfway through.
Why air fry?
Air frying is such a quick and effortless way to get dinner on the table, not to mention it’s a healthier option too.
The chicken thighs come out perfectly tender and juicy without the need for having a load of hot oil on your stovetop.
You can of course oven bake the thighs, but this method takes half the time and you get that wonderful crispy skin that just can’t be replicated.
Can you make them ahead of time?
These chicken thighs are best served straight away, but the good news is, is that if you do have leftovers they will keep for up to 4 days in the fridge and can easily be reheated.
Reheat the thighs in the air fryer at 350F for about 4 minutes until heated through. They’ll come out perfectly crispy like they’ve just been cooked.
What do you serve them with?
These air fryer chicken thighs can be served with so many of your favorite side dishes. Great with potato, veggie and salads, there’s no bad way to serve these up. Try them with:
- The thighs should be at room temperature when you put them in the air fryer. I like to take them out of the fridge 30 minutes before I plan to cook them so that they cook through evenly.
- Don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket. If you want to double the recipe, cook the chicken in two batches.
- Pre heat the fryer before adding the chicken so that it cooks through evenly.
Once you cook these chicken thighs in the air fryer, you’ll never go back to deep frying! They are totally foolproof, and guys, trust me on this, they are super deicious!
