How Long Do You Cook Drumsticks In The Air Fryer
This all depends on the size of the drumsticks and what air fryer you are using.
For this recipe I use medium/standard size drumsticks. They aren’t huge or tiny, somewhere in between.
I have used a Power XL Air Fryer and a Nuwave Air Fryer. The Power XL takes 2-3 minutes less to cook everything. You’ll get to know your air fryer and be able to adjust the cook times for optimal results.
