  • 4 boneless chicken thighs (0.25 lb / 240g each)
  • 1/3 cup (35 g) almond flour
  • 3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp Herbes de Provence or dried mixed herbs
  • ½ tsp Cajun seasoning or Creole seasoning or ground coriander
  • Cooking spray


  • Preheat the air fryer to 200C.
  • Mix together almond flour, Parmesan cheese, paprika, Herbes de Provence, Cajun or other seasoning.
  • Lightly spray both sides of the chicken thighs with a calorie-controlled cooking spray (or if not following a calorie-controlled diet, rub with olive oil).
  • Cover both sides of the chicken with the coating mix and place in the air fryer basket. Make sure the chicken thighs are not touching.
  • Cook for 10-16 mins, depending on the size of the chicken. Mine took 14 mins. I recommend aiming for 12min and checking with a meat thermometer to make sure the centre of the meat reaches 74C (165 F).



Tips for Making Air Fryer Chicken Thighs
  • Make sure the chicken is not touching. This allows maximum air circulation inside the fryer, so your chicken will cook evenly and turn out nicely crispy.
  • The seasoning mixture can be varied to suit your taste. Try swapping the Cajun seasoning for a combination of ground coriander, garlic powder and onion powder. Or, add a bit of heat with some cayenne or red chilli flakes.
  • Don't leave your chicken sitting in the coating for too long as it can go soggy. Coat both sides and then get them in the fryer ASAP!
