Air fryer chicken thighs
Cooking chicken thighs in an air fryer is a speedy way to achieve succulent meat with a delicious crispy skin. A spicy coating makes the perfect finishing touch
- Serves: 4 persons
- 1tsp paprika
- ½tsp mixed herbs
- ½tsp garlic granules (optional)
- 4chicken thighs, bone in
- 1tsp olive oil
Step 1Combine the paprika in a bowl with the herbs and garlic granules, if using, together with ½ tsp salt and ½ tsp ground black pepper. Scatter onto a plate. Rub the chicken thighs with the oil, then coat in the spice mix.
Step 2Put in the basket of your air fryer and cook, skin-side down, for 10 mins. Turn over and cook for a further 10-15 mins until cooked through and the skin is crispy. To check they are cooked, pierce the thickest part of the thigh with a knife to see if the juices run clear. Remove from the air fryer immediately to stop the skin from softening.
