Season Chicken


Place the chicken thighs in the air fryer basket, skin side up, making sure there’s at least a little room around each for the air to circulate. The chicken thighs will shrink a bit as they cook, too, allowing for more air flow.

Place Into Fryer


Cook the chicken thighs for 10 minutes, then flip and cook for about 8 minutes more.Make sure to test the chicken with a meat thermometer to make sure the internal temperature reaches 165ºF.
