Chicken is a great Primal protein on its own. Add in herby ranch flavor and a fast cook time from the air fryer? Perfection.
The air fryer’s quick cooking time means it cooks before it has had a chance for the chicken to dry out. With only six ingredients, a few minutes of prep time, and 25 minutes hands-off in the air fryer, this ranch chicken will become a go-to recipe for those busy nights.
Here’s how to make it.
- 1.5 lbs. bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (about 6 thighs)
- 1 tsp. dried dill
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper
- 1/4 cup Primal Kitchen® Ranch Dressing
In a small bowl, combine half of the dill with the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Sprinkle the mixture all over the chicken thighs.
Combine the remaining dill and the ranch dressing in a bowl. Toss the chicken thighs in the dressing so it coats the chicken on all sides.
Place the chicken skin side up in an air fryer basket. Place the basket in the air fryer and set the temperature to 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 25-30 minutes. Check the chicken once or twice while cooking to ensure they aren’t burning.
Once the chicken is finished cooking, check the internal temperature of the chicken to make sure it is at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
Serve the thighs alongside your favorite side dish, like Chimichurri Cauliflower!
