Ingredients

Scale
  • 6 chicken drumsticks, approximately 1 ½ to 2 pounds
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce

  4. Put the drumsticks and toss to completely coat them with the seasoned oil, and set aside.
  5. Spray the air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray. Place the drumsticks in one layer, being careful not to overcrowd the basket, as they need space for air circulation. (Cook in batches if needed.)
