They are the perfect way to get fried chicken flavor without using breading or added grains. Airfryerchickenlegs are one of my favorite easy veto recipes because they are perfect for busy people & families.

They do not require much prep and the whole family will eat them happily even if they aren’t following a low-carb or keto diet. Baking powder, when added to the spice mix, allows the chicken skin to crisp up nicely in the air fryer.

Along with a drizzle of olive oil, you will have crispy, great-tasting drumsticks without the use of bread crumbs and other grains. You could use frozen chicken if you prefer, but you have to make sure you take the time to defrost them first.

Frozen chicken legs also tend to be wetter, so you need to spend more time patting them dry. To make drumsticks in the Food, you need to start by patting the chicken legs dry with paper towels.

Next, you need to mix up the spices, salt, and baking powder in a small bowl. Once it is well blended, place the chicken legs in a bowl or a large zip lock bag.

Sprinkle the spice mix on top and give them a toss to coat the legs with the mixture. Place the chicken into the air fryer cooking basket and drizzle a little of oil on them.

For bare minimum oneness, 24 total minutes in an air fryer set to 400 degrees will adequately cook the drumsticks. One great thing about air fryers generally is that you can always open the lid, check on your meat, and continue cooking if you need more time.

Foil is a great trick to help keep baking pans clean or cleaner when cooking in the oven. They are the perfect way to get crispy fried chicken without using breading or added grains.
