I just recently started Weight Watchers again for the new year. It’s time to really get it together. Last year was a mess with eating and I feel like I didn’t focus on the healthy eating as much as I should have. Since I got this air fryer I’ve made so many dishes so it’s definitely helping me eat better. The things you can do with it, are endless.
This chicken recipe is marinated with Greek yogurt. The yogurt makes it super juicy and moist. I love the flavor it gives, too. Instead of using a marinade with oil this is a healthier lighter alternative. You have to give this recipe a try!
Please keep in mind not all air fryers are created equally. You may need to adjust the temp and cook time to your specific model type.
Healthy Air Fryer Chicken Thighs
1 cup non fat Greek yogurt
2 T ranch seasoning
1 T olive oil
6-8 chicken thighs, boneless & skinless
Directions: In a small bowl mix together Greek yogurt, ranch seasoning and olive oil. In a deep dish pan or zip lock bag add the chicken and cover chicken with the Greek yogurt mixture on both sides. Let marinade for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
To cook, preheat the air fryer. Spray the basket or rack with cooking spray. Line the bottom of the air fryer with foil for easy clean up. (Note: I have an oven air fryer) Add chicken to the rack and cook at 370° for 17-19 minutes, flipping halfway through. I like the nice charred edges on the chicken, however you can reduce time if you prefer. Check the chicken with an instant read thermometer. The internal temp at the thickest part of the thigh should be 165°. You may need to cook the chicken in batches, or if you have an oven air fryer, you can add 2 racks and rotate racks half way through. Let rest a few minutes before enjoying.
