DrBBQ’s Air Fryer Fried Chicken Legs

By Ray Lampe, Dr. BBQ

This is a tasty air fryer faux fried chicken recipe with that great Tsunami Spin flavor. Wondra® is a fine-ground flour that’s mainly used for thickening sauces and gravies without creating lumps, but in this case, it helps create a thin and crispy crust on the chicken. It should be available in most supermarkets in a cardboard cannister, but in a pinch, you could substitute cornstarch. Duck Fat Spray has also become readily available, but you could substitute olive oil spray if necessary.
