Crispy Chicken Thighs in Air Fryer

4 boneless skinless chicken thighs

1/2 Tablespoon garlic powder

2 teaspoons smoked paprika

1 tablespoon dried thyme or 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme

1/2 teaspoon of salt

2 teaspoons brown sugar

2 Tablespoons olive oil


Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees and spray the basket with nonstick cooking spray.

Add the garlic powder, paprika, thyme, salt, and brown sugar to a bowl and mix until combined.

Pat the chicken thighs dry with a paper towel and sprinkle the rub over the chicken thighs. Be sure the dry rub covers the entire chicken thigh. Place the chicken thighs into the air fryer and drizzle the olive oil over them.

 Set the air fryer for 8 minutes, flip the chicken thighs, and cook them an additional 6 to 10 minutes depending on the size of the chicken thighs.

 The internal chicken temperature of the chicken should be 165 degrees. If you would like your chicken thighs crispier, cook them an additional 2 minutes. Let the chicken sit for 3-5 minutes before eating.
