These air-fryer chicken drumsticks are flavorful, crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Sometimes I'll add some red pepper flakes in addition to the curry powder if I want to spice it up a bit. I like to serve it with chicken-seasoned rice and boiled broccoli.

If you've never had air fried chicken, it might sound a bit funny – because food in an air fryer isn't fried – it is more like ultra-convection broiled – meaning you can use just a tiny bit of oil and still get delicious crispy chicken.

Run your air fryer for a few minutes before adding the food so it is hot and ready to go when you go to air fry your chicken drumsticks.

-Toss in hot sauce at the end.

If you're going to sauce your drumsticks, wait until they have cooked and crisped to toss in sauce.

-Pay Attention to Cooking Time

Since air fryers are completely sealed off, it's hard to judge your chicken's doneness by the look of it.

Don't open your air fryer constantly, letting heat escape – trust in the timing of the recipe.

Watch the temperature

When your timer is done, immediately test the temperature of the chicken pieces with a digital thermometer inserted into the middle of the thickest part of the chicken drumstick without touching bone. Chicken should be 165 degrees internally.

If chicken has not met 165 degrees internally, add another 2-5 minutes to cooktime.

-Don't crowd the basket.

Air fryers help get hot air to circulate around the chicken drumstick to get a heat so high it makes meat seem fried – and to do that, it helps to not crowd the pan.

Put the chicken in your air fryer pan in a way they aren't crowding each other – it makes a huge difference.
