Tips for reheating  air fryer chicken drumsticks, air fryer chicken thighs, air fryer chicken wings & leftover fried chicken.


When it comes to reheating foods,  an air fryer reigns supreme.  It handles frozen fare with exceptional speed & consistently delivers top-notch results. Often outpacing traditional oven methods.

Within mere minutes, you can transform chilly chicken into succulent, freshly cooked goodness that tantalizes the taste buds.

To ensure you get the best flavor from your juicy chicken drumsticks, you may want to sprinkle some extra flavor before popping leftovers into an air fryer basket.

Add a little olive oil or avocado oil, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. Sprinkle on some black pepper, cayenne pepper, or even chili powder if you would like a little spice.

Set your air fryer to a precise 365 degrees F and allow it to preheat.

Arrange your chicken legs in a single layer within the air fryer basket or on the wire rack.

Your best bet is to cook drumsticks in the air fryer for an initial 3 minutes before turning them.

Then allow them to cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.

Cooking times may vary depending on the chicken legs’ size and thickness. If they’re almost there but not quite, a series of 30-second intervals will help them reach chicken perfection.
