Chicken drumsticks with the air fryer: the perfect ally

Cooking chicken legs in the air fryer is a great classic both for those who want to experiment with their first recipes with these appliances and for veterans who have been using them for a long time.

Chicken meat is particularly suitable for cooking in an air fryer: perfect for creating a nice crust and remaining tender and moist inside.

Preparing chicken drumsticks with an air fryer is really simple and the dish will be as good as in a restaurant.

Furthermore, chicken is truly evergreen, everyone likes it and can be prepared and customized by adding many ingredients and condiments: after all, everyone has their own special recipe which they also prepare in the pan or in the oven.

To cook the chicken drumsticks, we used a 6.5 liter air fryer, in which we added some lemon slices to the bottom of the internal riser. The lemon - or lime - slices give a fresh and citrus scent to the chicken, but obviously you can leave them out or replace them with slices of any citrus fruit you prefer. We can give a little extra touch of crunchiness by using panko - Chinese breadcrumbs - instead of what we all have at home.
