Easy Airfryer Chicken Recipe
If you’ve ever tried Jerk Chicken and you like it but its a bit too spicy for you then you will love this recipe. It has flavors very similar to Jerk Chicken like Allspice, Cinnamon and Coriander with just a touch of heat. I absolutely LOVE Jerk Chicken. Here in South Florida where I am located, it is served all over. I loved the Caribbean Island flavors of this dish.
How do You Make These Easy Airfryer Chicken Drumsticks?
Preparing these Easy Airfryer Chicken Legs is EASY. Simply mix together all the dry spices. Then add a couple tablespoons of Olive Oil and mix with the spices to form somewhat of a paste. Once that is completed add your chicken. You can use drumsticks, thighs or both. Coat the chicken well with the oil and spice mixture. Let the chicken marinate for at least 20 minutes or overnight. You want the flavor of all those spices in the chicken.
Once the chicken has marinated a bit we are ready to put it in the Airfryer. I paired this chicken with Steamed Cabbage and Sweet Potato fries that I made in the Airfryer to make it more Paleo. Truth is this goes really well with my Instant Pot Vegetarian Pasta Salad.
