For optimal crispiness and extra juicy meat, we use bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs — because that’s where all the flavor lives. Usually, chicken thighs are fried in their own fat, causing the skin to render slowly. Here, the fat drips down into the air fryer basket, offering a healthier alternative.

How to Make It

  1. Preheat a 4.5-quart air fryer to 400°F and pat chicken thighs dry with paper towel before seasoning.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the paprika, oregano, basil, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and white pepper. Sprinkle spice mix over both sides of the chicken evenly.
  3. Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray and place the chicken inside, skin-side down. Cook at 400°F for 8 minutes and flip. 
  4. Cook for another 15 minutes. The internal temperature of the chicken should reach 165°F once cooked through.
  5. Transfer the chicken thighs to a plate and enjoy.
