  1. One pound of skinless, boneless chicken thighs
  2. One tsp of kosher salt
  3. half a teaspoon of pepper, black
  4. one tsp powdered garlic
  5. One tsp powdered onion
  6. One tsp of paprika
  7. One tablespoon of olive oil
  8. One cup of optional barbecue sauce


  • Chop the chicken thighs into small pieces, removing the skin and bones. For even cooking, aim for cubes that are about 1 inch in size.
  • Combine the paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and salt in a big bowl. Pour the olive oil over the chicken thigh pieces as you add them to the bowl. Combine all of the items. until all of the seasoning is evenly distributed over the chicken.
  • For around five minutes, preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C). Check your handbook to make sure this step is necessary for your model.
  • Make sure the chicken pieces in your air fryer basket are not crowded and arrange them in a single layer. Your air fryer’s size will determine whether you need to cook in batches or not.
  • The chicken should be cooked for 10 to 12 minutes at 400°F (200°C). During the cooking process, remove the basket and shake it or turn the chicken pieces with tongs halfway through. This guarantees uniform browning and cooking.
  • Check the internal temperature of the chicken with a meat thermometer. When it reaches 165°F (74°C), it is safe to eat. Cook for a further two to three minutes, if needed, then check again.
  • When the chicken thigh bites are done, carefully take them out of the air fryer. It’ll be hot, so be careful! If preferred, garnish with fresh herbs and serve right away.
