Air Fryer Chicken

Tasty, quick, chicken thighs with juicy meat and a crispy skin; you will love this chicken that is ready for the table in less than 30 minutes! 


We used chicken thigh as it has a little more fat giving a more succulent juicy finished chicken, but feel free to switch it to chicken breast to have a more lower fat content. Also to bulk up the meal look at adding our Guilt-Free Pasta

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Pat chicken thighs dry with a paper towel and brush the skin-side of each piece with olive oil. Place chicken thighs, skin-side down, in a single layer on a plate.

  • Combine smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a bowl and sprinkle half the seasoning mixture evenly over the 4 chicken thighs. Turn thighs over and evenly sprinkle remaining seasoning mixture on top. Place chicken thighs in the air fryer basket in a single layer, skin-side up.

  • Fry in the preheated air fryer until chicken is brown and juices run clear, about 18 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 74 degrees C
