Mealthy Tip

Want to make a gluten-free, Whole30, or paleo version? Try almond flour instead of all-purpose flour.

If you want to keep the seasoning simple, skip the garlic powder and onion powder!

Drool! This air fryer chicken turned out so good! No gross oil smell you get after deep frying chicken. I used a little seasoned salt and tossed drumsticks and thighs in my air fryer using the steps in this recipe. It was so good, I definitely will make again.

Crispy and delicious. Not gonna lie, nothing compares to real fried chicken but this is the next best thing. I am trying to clean up the way I eat, so now I can enjoy one of my favorite foods but without the extra calories and clogged arteries, ha! I just used seasoned salt to keep it simple and really liked the way it turned out.

I used this time and temperature with rotating every 6 minutes 3 times and 7 minutes the last time. I used the KFC spices recipe and it turned out awesome! The key is rotating and carefully rotating so the spices don’t fall off. I’m definitely going to be trying several other recipes.

Confusing whether 6 legs means 6 drumsticks and 6 thighs or 3 drumsticks and 3 thighs. 900 calories for 1 drumstick seems really fattening.
