Squeeze the juice of half a lemon over the chicken thighs. Evenly sprinkle the kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, sweet paprika, and dried herbs over both sides of the chicken. Gently rub the seasonings into the skin and meat to infuse the flavors.

After 12 minutes, carefully flip the chicken thighs using tongs to ensure the skin gets evenly crispy. Continue to air fry for another 12 minutes, or until the chicken is golden brown, the skin is crispy, and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F when checked with a meat thermometer.
