Prep Time: 5 Min
- Chicken thighs - Avocado oil - Smoked paprika - Paprika - Kosher or sea salt - Garlic powder - Black pepper
COOK Time: 20 Min
Preheat the air fryer to 400°F. Use an air fryer liner or cut a piece of parchment paper to fit in the air fryer basket. Pat the chicken thighs dry on both sides with paper towels and then place them in a large bowl.
Drizzle the thighs with the oil & toss to coat the chicken evenly. Whisk together the smoked paprika, paprika, salt, garlic powder & black pepper in a small bowl & then sprinkle the seasoning evenly all over the chicken thighs.
Rub the seasoning into the chicken until evenly coated. Place the thighs, skin side down, in a single layer, on the prepared liner or parchment paper (if using) in the air fryer basket.
Air fry the chicken for 9 to 11 minutes, flip the chicken over and continue cooking for another 9 to 11 minutes, until the skin is golden brown and crispy.
