Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes


  • Chicken skin (from 2-3 chicken thighs or breasts)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional seasonings: paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Start by cleaning the chicken skin and patting it dry with a paper towel. Removing any excess moisture will help achieve a crispier result.
  3. Season the chicken skin with salt, pepper, and any optional seasonings you desire. Be generous with the seasoning to enhance the flavor.
  4. Place the seasoned chicken skin in a single layer in the air fryer basket. You may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
  5. Cook the chicken skin in the air fryer for about 10-15 minutes, or until it turns golden brown and crispy. Flip the skin halfway through the cooking process to ensure even browning.
  6. Once cooked, remove the chicken skin from the air fryer and place it on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil.
  7. Allow the chicken skin to cool for a few minutes before serving. It will become even crispier as it cools down.
  8. Enjoy your homemade crispy chicken skin as a snack or use it as a topping for salads, soups, or any other dish that could use an extra crunch!
