Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Thighs

  • Author: Trish Corlew


These flavorful, crispy chicken thighs have no carbs, no gluten and no guilt! Better yet, you cook them in an air fryer to save time and ensure that they get that perfect “crunch,” every time.  While these Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Thighs are an ideal choice for those following a gluten-free, Paleo or Keto lifestyle, they are truly a winning option for any crowd!



4 chicken thighs

2 teaspoons olive oil

½ teaspoon dried oregano

½ teaspoon paprika

Salt, to taste

Black pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare air fryer basket with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Rub chicken thighs with olive oil on all sides.
  3. Sprinkle with seasonings on all sides.
  4. Cook at 390 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, flipping halfway.  Remove from air fryer and serve warm. 


Exact time depends on the thickness of the chicken thighs and the wattage of the air fryer. Test the chicken with an instant read thermometer for a temperature of 180 degrees.
