Easy Air Fried chicken drumsticks are a healthy way to cook drumsticks. They are a great source of essential amino acids, and several vitamins and minerals as well. Being higher in fat, drumsticks are a great choice for a keto diet. They can also be made paleo and whole-30 friendly. They turned out nice and crisp, tangy and smoky with a touch of sweetness!

What temperature is chicken cooked?

  • In all instances make sure the internal temp of the chicken is 165F/75C, with the juices running clear when pierced.

How long do you Air Fry chicken drumsticks?

  • Again, it depends on the temp. But for 390-400 F, depending on the size of your drumsticks, I find around 15 minutes to hit the sweet spot.

What should you serve with chicken drumsticks?

  • My family likes it with jeera rice and ranch/hot sauce, but most side dishes will work great!

To Marinade the Chicken Drumsticks:

  • Chicken Drumsticks 4

  • Coriander Powder 1 Tsp
  • Cumin Powder 1 Tsp
  • Garam Masala 1 Tsp
  • Lemon juice 1 Tbsp 
  • Oil 1 Tsp
  • Salt 1 Tsp 


To Prepare Chicken Drumsticks to Marinade:

  • Wash chicken drumsticks.
  • Dry skinned drumsticks with a paper towel. 
  • Put 2-3 slits on each drumstick.
To Marinate Chicken Drumsticks:
  • In a bowl, add yogurt, Kashmiri red chili powder, ginger-garlic paste, turmeric, garam masala, coriander-cumin powder, salt, lemon juice, and oil and mix well. 
  • Apply marinade all over the chicken. 
  • Allow the chicken to marinate for 3-4 hours(if you have the time it's good to marinate for up to 24 hours in the refrigerator and take the chicken out of the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to cooking).

To Air Fry Tandoori Chicken:

  • Preheat the Air Fryer at 390 F for 3 minutes.
  • Transfer the marinated chicken drumsticks into the air fryer's basket and spray some cooking oil. 
  • Close the basket of the air fryer. 
  • Air Fry at 390 F for 15 minutes and flip after 7-8 minutes. 
  • Once done, take the chicken drumsticks out of the air fryer.
  • Serve crispy, juicy, and tender Tandoori Chicken with blue cheese, buffalo hot sauce, or ranch dressing. Enjoy!!! 

  • For an even easier cleanup line your air fryer basket with aluminum foil!
  • Make the marinade the night before even and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. Bring the chicken out about 30 minutes before you are ready to bake it so it has a little time to come to room temperature.
  • Cooked drumsticks can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 3 to 5 days. Reheat in the oven to help re-crisp the skin.
  • If the skin is not crisp after reheating, you can place it under the broiler for a minute or two.
  • I always use a meat thermometer to make sure that my meat is cooked safely. The safe internal temperature for chicken is 165F.
