Craving delicious chicken legs that are crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside? Look no further than your air fryer! This recipe uses only 5 ingredients and requires minimal effort for perfectly seasoned drumsticks.

Ingredients:

  • Seasoning Mix:
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Chicken:
    • 4 skin-on chicken drumsticks

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius) according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. Make the Seasoning:
    • In a small bowl, combine the garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Season the Chicken:
    • Place the chicken drumsticks on a clean work surface. Pat them dry with paper towels (for extra crispy skin).
    • Sprinkle the spice mixture evenly over all sides of the chicken, ensuring they are well-coated.
  4. Air Fry the Chicken:
    • Place the seasoned drumsticks in the basket of your air fryer. Cook for 10 minutes.
    • Using tongs, carefully flip the chicken legs over and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  5. Rest and Serve:
    • Once cooked through, transfer the chicken legs to a plate and let them rest for 5 minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute for an even more flavorful experience.
  6. Check for Doneness:
    • Use an instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone to ensure the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit (74 degrees Celsius) for safe consumption.
