Air Fryer Chicken Legs (Crispy & Juicy)

Air Fryer Chicken Legs are my go-to on a busy school night. They are always sooooo juicy on the inside while nice and crispy on the outside. Don’t forget to bust out your favorite hot sauce!


– chicken legs – garlic parsley salt – black pepper

Tap dry chicken and season with garlic parsley salt and pepper. Toss together to make sure that all sides are seasoned well.


Place chicken legs in one layer inside an air fryer. Air fry chicken at 400 °F for 10 minutes. Remove the basket and turn chicken, air fry for 10 more minutes.


A fully cooked chicken should read 165°F. If necessary, air fry chicken for another 5 minutes.


Just like you would with a hot skillet of oil or conventional oven, you are going to want to preheat your air fryer before adding your chicken into the tray. This promotes even cooking and helps get the skin crispy.

Preheat your air fryer
