When you bake them in the air fryer they get so nice and crispy and it takes only 25 minutes. This is a really easy low-carb recipe because you only need 4 ingredients and you can prepare them in a few minutes.

I went to a bigger grocery store and looked for the brand with the fewest carbs and chose the ones pictured below. The bacon I used below was thin enough to stretch and lay nice and flat around the chicken thighs.

Thick bacon would be hard to work with and might take longer to crisp. Next add a little shredded cheese in the middle and a few slices of roasted peppers on top.

Fold the chicken thigh over and then gently wrap it together with a piece of bacon. Spray the cooking basket of your air fryer and place the chicken bundles seam side down.

They are pretty simple but the bacon and cheese are just so salty and gooey and go well with the sweet peppers and chicken. You could also use boneless, skinless chicken breasts but make sure they are very thin.

Try to use a medium to thin slice of bacon so that it wraps the chicken thighs nicely and stays in place. The thicker slice might not stay put when you bend it to wrap around the chicken.

6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs 2/3 cup shredded Gruyère Swiss cheese 4 oz roasted red peppers, sliced thinly 6 pieces of medium sliced bacon Add about 2 tablespoons of shredded cheese on each chicken thigh.

The bacon will stretch a bit so you can make sure you cover the whole piece of chicken. Place in the air fryer basket seam side down.

When bacon comes in contact with a hot surface, it renders fat and browns even faster. Based on my experiments, here are some great ways to cook baconwrappedchickenthighs to get excellent and tasty results.

Grilling is a great way to cook bacon wrapped chicken. By the time the bacon is nice and crispy, the meat inside will be perfectly cooked and moist.

Cook the thighs at about 350F-400F over direct heat for about 20-30 minutes, turning frequently until the internal temperature reaches at least 165F. Air frying is another excellent way to cook bacon wrapped chicken thighs.

You get a grill-like aroma and the bacon will be nicely crisped up by the time the meat is fully cooked. Baking can be a good way to cook bacon wrapped chicken thighs too, if you add a couple of additional steps.

Plain baking will result in pale, rubbery bacon by the time the chicken is cooked through. This is my preferred way as it gives the best control over the final temperature and results in an evenly crisped up surface.

Mix and massage the meat until the liquids are absorbed and the chicken is evenly coated with the seasonings. Place chicken thighs on the rack, top side up, lose bacon strip ends tucked underneath.

Flip and cook for another 5-8 minutes or until the tops are crispy and the chicken has reached at least 165F internal temperature. Note: the timings may vary from air fryer to air fryer so start checking early the first time you cook these thighs and adjust as needed.

Grill over direct heat for about 20-30 minutes, turning frequently, until the internal temperature reaches at least 165F and the bacon is crispy. Alternatively, start cooking in the oven, without searing, then use the broiled to crisp up the bacon.

Watch the thighs closely as they can go from browned to burn in a matter of seconds. Tip: if you are baking or air frying chicken thighs, brush them lightly with the rendered fat, they will look more appetizing that way.

First, if you use an air fryer to reduce fat in your diet, this may not be the recipe for you. When I began wrapping the bacon around each chicken thigh, it seemed to me that it was just too much butter for each thigh (1-1/2 lb was 5 thighs), so I cut the amount of butter in half (I can use the leftover compound butter for something else; it won't go to waste).

The chicken still came out juicy and delicious even though cooking it for the recommended time resulted in an internal temp of 185 degrees. I will definitely make this again but may reduce the cooking time a bit.

Try lightly seasoned airfryerchickenthighs, a quick and delicious way to prepare chicken. Perfect as is, or easily adapted for any type of cuisine.

Ready in only twenty minutes, airfryerchickenthighs are a staple in my kitchen. Add a quick salad, veggies, potatoes, or even cook up a box of mac and cheese.

But honestly, unless I’ve been in a real meal-prepping mood, I usually need to cook the chicken before proceeding with the recipe. Whether you’re making airfryerchickenthighs the star of your meal, or including them in a more complicated recipe, you’ll find yourself turning to this easy cooking method often.

In a large bowl, coat approximately two pounds of chicken thighs with a bit of olive oil. Place the thighs in a single layer in your air fryer.

You’ll probably have to cook the chicken in batches unless your air fryer is bigger than mine. Or cut it up and add it to recipes like cauliflower nachos or creamy chicken spaghetti.

Add it to a tortilla with the fixings you like for a great chicken taco. Put it on a bun, with tomato, lettuce, and mayo for a delicious chicken sandwich.

The internal temperature of the chicken should be 165 °F and the juices should run clear, not bloody. Bone-in chicken with skin will take just a little longer than boneless skinless chicken thighs.

Another factor that affects cooking time is the size of the thighs. Barbecue rub : this blend of dark brown sugar, salt, pepper, chili powder, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, ground mustard, celery seed, and cayenne pepper adds so much flavor.

Just plain seasoned salt would be good or make it as spicy as you like it with pepper. Leftover chicken, wrapped well, will last up to four days in the fridge or you can freeze it to use later.

Here's a quick summary of how to make air fryer garlic Parmesan chicken. Brining is a quick technique that makes a big difference once the chicken is cooked.

It makes chicken extra juicy, so be sure not to skip this step. Once the chicken has been brined, rinsed, and patted dry, it's time to season it.

Rub the spice mix into both sides of the chicken parts, then arrange in the air fryer in a single layer. Add a tablespoon or so of finely grated Parmesan cheese to the top of each thigh, then return the basket to the air fryer, reduce the temperature to 350 °F.

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, air fry at 375 °F. Add a tablespoon or so of finely grated Parmesan cheese to the top of each breast, then return the basket to the air fryer, reduce the temperature to 350 °F.

To reheat, brush the basket with a very thin layer of oil, then heat the chicken at 350 °F. Add ¼ cup salt to a bowl (or zipper-closure bag) of slightly warm water.

Add the chicken thighs or breasts and let them sit in this brine for 15 minutes. Toss the chicken parts with 1 tablespoon olive oil, then rub the spice mixture into both sides.

Place a tablespoon or so of grated Parmesan cheese on top of each of the pieces of chicken. With an instant-read meat thermometer, check that the internal temperature of the chicken has reached 165 °F.
