Extra Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Drumsticks
These chicken legs have a crisp outer skin thanks to the magic of the air fryer and a little help from a cornstarch coating. We are adding just a touch of cornstarch the achieve that crispy chicken skin.
This is a fairly basic coating so feel free to add any of your favorite seasoning or sauces to the chicken. If adding a bbq sauce, do it the last 5 minutes of cooking to prevent burning.
How Long Do Drumsticks Take In An Air Fryer
I like to air fry chicken drumsticks at 400ºF. At this temp the chicken legs should be done in 18-20 minutes or 25 minutes for larger legs. Cook chicken until it reaches an internal temp of 165ºF.
