Air Fryer Chicken Leg Quarters
Crispy golden brown skin without breading, moist and delicious meat and very little mess. This has become our favorite way to make Air Fryer Chicken Leg Quarters.
Spray the pan with cooking oil and preheat the
air fryer to 400º for 5 minutes with the pan in it.
Rinse the chicken with water
and pat dry with a paper towel.
Drizzle olive oil over the chicken. Using your hands,
rub the oil all over the chicken making sure
you don’t miss a spot or it won’t brown.
Add your favorite seasoning, we love Adobo
on ours. Using your hands rub the seasoning
into the chicken making sure it is on both sides.
Place the chicken, skin side down, into the hot pan. (I had too many leg quarters to lay flat so I leaned mine against the side making sure there was air between the pan and the chicken.) Cook for 20 minutes then turn the chicken skin side up. Continue to cook until the thickest part of the thigh is 165º, checking after 5 minutes. Each piece is a different thickness so check the temperature of each piece before removing. Do not overcook or they will be dry.
