Air Fryer Chicken Legs

Air fryer chicken legs are one of the easiest ways to cook chicken. They come out crispy on the outside and tender on the inside and are totally delicious.

You'll Need: Chicken legs, olive oil, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper.


Add olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper to a large bowl and mix together.


Add the drumsticks and mix with the paprika sauce so that chicken is evenly coated.


Lightly coat the inside of the air fryer tray or basket with olive oil or cooking spray. Preheat the air fryer to 400°F for 2 minutes. Place drumsticks in a single layer in the air fryer. Cook for 12 minutes then flip over.


Cook an additional 12-15 minutes or until chicken reaches 165°F as an internal temperature when poked with a meat thermometer.
