Serving 4 servings


  • 5 - 6 boneless and skinless chicken thighs, excess fat trimmed off
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 - 2 lemons, for serving
  • Fresh parsley, finely chopped, for serving


  • Preheat air fryer to 380°F and lightly grease the basket with non-stick olive oil spray.
  • Meanwhile, pat your chicken thighs dry with a paper towel and combine all your seasonings into a small bowl.
  • Season both sides of the chicken thighs, using your fingers to gently pat the seasoning mixture onto each.
  • Add chicken things smooth side down to the preheated air fryer and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Flip with tongs and air fryer for 4 - 5 more, until cooked through when the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  • Serve immediately with a squeeze of lemon, sprinkle of fresh parsley, and enjoy!


If you buy skin-in chicken thighs, just remove the skin.
If you buy bone-in chicken thighs, increase the air frying time by 1 - 2 minutes.
Storing: For best results, store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Air Fryer: This is my air fryer recommendation.
