Air Fryer Chicken Thighs
This chicken came out fantastic in my new air fryer. I brushed the skin with olive before putting the seasoning on to make it extra crispy. The bonus was that it is Low Carb/ Keto . Perfect for my hubby. Have you tried my other low carb options I have shared? KETO JALAPENO POPPER CHICKEN CASSEROLE or Chicken Queso Soup (Low Carb Keto Friendly ) Instant Pot.
What is An Air Fryer ?
An air fryer is a small countertop convection oven designed to simulate deep frying without submerging the food in oil. A fan circulates hot air at high speed, producing a crisp layer via browning reactions such as the Maillard reaction.( via https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_fryer)
