Quick and easy chicken legs made in the air fryer with deliciously crispy skin.



5 chicken legs (or the amount that will fit in your air fryer with room between them)
avocado oil or olive oil in a sprayer
Himalayan salt


Lightly spray the basket of the air fryer with the avocado oil. Place the chicken legs in the basket alternating them and leaving a little room between each leg so the air can flow around them.

Lightly spray each leg with oil and then sprinkle with salt.

Set air fryer at 400° and cook for 10 minutes.

Turn each leg and lightly spray with oil and sprinkle with salt. Cook 10 more minutes.

Turn chicken legs one more time and give them another little spritz with oil and cook 3-4 more minutes until juices run clear or a meat thermometer inserted reads 165°.
