Air Fryer BBQ Chicken Thighs are a new staple for me! I always love chicken thighs because they’re so juicy – and this is so simple. Add a little bbq sauce (sugar free if you’re on Weight Watchers like me) and 10 minutes later – you’re eating dinner!
The best part is the air fryer can cook the whole meal at once! I cut up a potato (so it would cook faster) and sliced carrots – and bam – the whole dinner – done! I have the basket-style air fryer – and a big one at that – so everything fits!
How do you make Air Fryer BBQ Chicken?
It couldn’t be simpler!!! Grab a bottle of your favorite bbq sauce and slather it on the boneless skinless chicken thighs. You can marinate the thighs in the sauce for a bit if you like – but I just coated it on thick. Air fry at 375 for 5 minutes. Open the air fryer, flip the chicken, add more sauce and air fry 5 min more.
If you are making potatoes and carrots with it – you’ll need to start the potatoes first. Cut into four pieces, the potatoes take about 20 minutes and the carrots take about 15 minutes.
What BBQ sauce can you use on Weight Watchers?
I looked around and was able to find the G Hughes brand is sugar-free and really low on points – plus they have a bunch of varieties! That’s the main thing to look for in condiments – sugar free – but no worries – they taste yum!
Tell me about Weight Watchers
I love that I found a bbq sauce that I can easily have on Weight Watchers. I actually got my first weight loss charm last week!!! They send them when you lose a certain number of pounds – today was just 5 but still psyched to get it! On WW, there are a lot of “free” foods which you can have as much of as you like – and this recipe is 0 on ALL PLANS! So eat up!!!
