  • 6 large boneless chicken thighs fats trimmed off
  • 2 tbsps. chili seasoning
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp. cilantro dry
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • cup lemons

  • Preheat air fryer to 360 F.
  • In a bowl, season the chicken with spices and lemon juice. You can marinate them for 30 minutes if you have time, but not required.
  • Lay the chicken thighs flat without overlaps or folds, spray generously with olive oil. Cook for 15 minutes, flipping over half way through and spraying the new side before throwing them back in. Cook in two batches if your air fryer is small.

  • Once completely cooked, remove and wrap in aluminum foil and let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  • Garnish with some fresh chopped parsley if you like and some lemon wedges.
