Make Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs With Mustard and Chives in Your Air Fryer (Diabetic Friendly)

This easy main dish takes only a few minutes to make and cooks in your air fryer in about 15 minutes. The chicken thighs stay nice and moist in the air fryer and are high in protein, low in fat, and perfect if you're watching calories or on a diabetic diet. The dish also is incredibly tasty! A little Dijon mustard and Greek yogurt are the key ingredients for the recipe along with some spices and green onions. Chives on top of the air fried thighs provide even more flavor. If you have no chives, feel free to substitute more green onions (I have chives growing in a pot by my door, but would never pay the high supermarket prices for them, even though I really like them). The chicken thighs pair well with mashed sweet potatoes and a green vegetable. Enjoy!

Chicken Thighs With Mustard and Chives -- Serves 4


2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard

1/4 cup of plain Greek yogurt (fat free is fine)

1/2 teaspoon of onion powder

1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1/4 teaspoon of pepper

2 teaspoons of olive oil

2 - 3 tablespoons of chopped green onions

1 - 1 1/4 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed and patted dry

3 - 4 tablespoons of chopped fresh chives


Cut a piece of aluminum foil large enough to fit in the bottom and an inch or two up the sides of your air fryer basket. Press the foil into the basket and spritz the foil with non-stick cooking spray. In a small bowl or cup mix well the mustard, yogurt, onion and garlic powder, salt, pepper, olive oil, and green onions. Put the chicken thighs in your air fryer basket on top of the foil in one layer. Top the thighs with the mustard-yogurt mixture, spreading the mixture out evenly on top of the thighs. Air fry the thighs at 360 degrees for about 15 minutes or until the thighs are spotty brown and register at least 175 on an instant read thermometer. Sprinkle the chives over the thighs and serve them.

RE: "Air fry the thighs at 360 degrees for about 15 minutes or until the thighs are spotty brown and register at least 175 on an instant read thermometer."


Is 175* correct for the internal temperature these boneless, skinless thighs should register? In all other recipes I have read, it states an internal temperature of 165* is the goal.

Yes -- 165 is for chicken breasts and light meat. Thighs should cook to 175 degrees, as they are dark meat. Happy cooking!
