Why Should You Make Air Fryer Chicken Drumsticks?
Using an air fryer to cook drumsticks keeps the mess contained rather than all over your grill or stovetop. It’s fantastic!
Easy and Quick:
Drumsticks may be cooked half the time with excellent results.
The fryer’s circulating air evenly cooks the legs without overcharging them on the outside. It’s simply outstanding!
It’s a healthy method to obtain your protein because it requires very little oil. Especially if you’re on a diet, it’s a healthy approach to acquire the taste and texture of “fried” food without the oil.
Chicken legs were one of the cheapest meats I could find the last time I checked; talk about dining gourmet on a budget!
How Long Do Drumsticks Take in An Air Fryer?
Place the chicken legs skin side down—Cook for 10 minutes at 380 degrees. After 10 minutes, flip the chicken and restart air frying for another 7-8 minutes, or until it changes color and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
Can I Use the Air Fryer to Stack Chicken Legs?
We want to leave enough room around our chicken legs as we do with most foods we cook in the air fryer so that the hot air can circulate and the skin can crisp up. As a result, we don’t recommend stacking the chicken in more than one layer.
