Air Fryer Chicken Legs

For all the fried chicken lovers this Air Fryer BBQ Chicken Recipe gives a healthy alternative to the oil fried chicken. If you don’t have an air fryer get one soon because you can make awesome meals without or using just a little oil. Air frying chicken gives a very crispy texture and very nice finish.


  • Family Pack Chicken Legs
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 2 cups brown sugar


Step 1

Mix flour, salt and pepper in a gallon size bag.

Step 2

Toss chicken legs in the flour mixture until well coated.

Step 3

Place up to six legs in your fryer basket.

Step 4

Set fryer to 360 and 22 minutes and place basket in fryer. (For your first basket of legs add an additional 3 minutes to the time because the fryer hasn’t been preheated.)

Step 5

Halfway through make sure you take your basket out and give it a quick shake to keep the legs from sticking.

Step 6

While your legs are in the fryer, take the ketchup and brown sugar and put in a pot in between low and medium on the stove and mix with whisk until well combined and warm.

Step 7

As your legs come out of the fryer, coat in the sauce and place on a sprayed cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 350.

Step 8

Once all your legs are out, put legs in the oven for 10 minutes to get them all nice and hot again.

Step 9

I finished mine off under the broiler on low for about 3 minutes as well, but that’s not necessary.
