How to make Air Fryer Lemon Pepper Chicken Thighs

First put 4 to 5 chicken thighs into a gallon size plastic bag.

This makes for easy and mess free marinating.

Then add some soy sauce, lemon juice, lemon pepper seasoning, kosher salt, and pepper.

Massage the bag until the chicken is coated and marinate in the fridge at least for a few hours.

Or you can do this the night before!

Next remove the chicken thighs from the bag and put them in the air fryer basket.

Sprinkle a little more kosher salt, pepper, and lemon pepper seasoning over top too.

Then set the air fryer to 390 degrees for 18 to 22 minutes.

Or until the internal temperature of the chicken is above 165 degrees.
