Air Fryer Crispy Chicken Thighs

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and pepper to taste
Prepare the Chicken Thighs / Legs & Backs:
Pat the chicken thighs dry with paper towels.
In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, dried oregano, salt, and pepper to create a seasoning mixture.
Season the Chicken:
Rub the seasoning mixture evenly over both sides of each chicken thigh, making sure to get the seasoning under the skin as well for extra flavor.
Preheat the Air Fryer:
Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for a few minutes.
Air Fry the Chicken:
Place the seasoned chicken thighs in the air fryer basket, skin side down.
Cook the chicken at 375°F (190°C) for 20 minutes.
Flip and Continue Cooking:
After 20 minutes, flip the chicken thighs skin side up.
Cook for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) and the skin is crispy and browned.
Remove the chicken from the air fryer and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce or alongside your preferred side dishes.
Enjoy your crispy and flavorful air fryer chicken thighs!
