Easy Air Fryer Chicken Legs

These Easy Air Fryer Chicken Legs were delicious, moist and they are healthier than breaded chicken.

Spray the air fryer basket with cooking

oil. Preheat at 390º for 5 minutes.

Pat the chicken dry with paper towel.

Place the chicken into a large bowl.

Drizzle with oil and rub it all over

each leg making sure every

part is coated.

Combine the dry ingredients.

Sprinkle the dry ingredients

over the chicken.

Toss the chicken until all the legs are

completely coated. Add them to the

preheated air fryer trying to

keep them apart.

Air fry for 10 minutes then turn them

over and air fry another 5 minutes.

Check the temperature at the thickest

part of each leg. They will be 165º

when they are cooked properly. If

you are cooking smaller legs they

may be cooked through at this time.

Mine were large and they took 20

minutes. After the 15 minutes, if they

are not done, continue cooking and

check every 2 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 6-8 chicken legs (drumsticks), skin and bone on
  • 3 Tbsp. oil
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder 

Directions

  1. Spray the air fryer basket with cooking oil. Preheat the Air fryer for 5 minutes at 390º.
  2. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Place the chicken into a large bowl.
  3. Drizzle enough oil over the chicken to coat all of the legs completely.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
  5. Sprinkle the dry ingredients over the chicken and toss until the chicken is coated evenly.
  6. Place the chicken into the preheated air fryer, trying to keep them from touching.
  7. Air fry for 10 minutes then turn them over. Cook another 5 minutes then check the temperature of the thickest part of each drumstick. It needs to be at least 165º. If it is not, continue cooking and checking every 2 minutes. My drumsticks took 20 minutes, it depends how big they are.
  8. Remove from the air fryer and serve.

  1. Chicken drumsticks are so dangerous to me, cuz I could literally go through a whole bucket cuz they’re so bite size individually! Your dry rub mix looks great and the final product looks yum. I really do need to get Santa to give me an Air Fryer.
