Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Thighs recipe from Mountain View Country Market in Chuckey,TennesseeCrispy Air Fryer Chicken Thighs

1 teaspoon granulated garlic (or garlic powder)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 bone-in, skin on chicken thighs (about 2 pounds)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Mix together the granulated garlic, onion powder, thyme, paprika, 2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Pat the chicken dry and add to a medium bowl. Add the olive oil and half of the spice mix, then toss to combine. Add the flour to the remaining spice mix and stir to combine. Transfer the flour mixture to a large resealable bag. Add the seasoned thighs to the bag, seal well and toss until the chicken is fully coated in the flour. Preheat a 3.5-quart air fryer to 400 degrees F. Add the chicken thighs to the air fryer basket, skin-side down and without touching. Cook, flipping skin-side up halfway through, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part (avoiding the bone) reads 165 degrees F, about 18 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
