What kind of air fryer should be used to make this recipe?

This recipe was made in an air fryer oven. If you have a large “egg” or “barrel” style air fryer you are also able to make these drumsticks in there. You may have to cook the chicken in 2 batches. Watch the cooking time.

What can I pair with this recipe?

This recipe pairs really well with macaroni and cheese, amongst other dishes. It can be paired with a salad or served with most vegetables.

I don’t tend to get chicken drumsticks, but there’s so much you can do with them and my fiance loves them. So I might have to give these a go but in the oven as I don’t have an air fryer x
