  • Air Fryer https://amzn.to/39DuJNa


  • 8 chicken legs or thighs or you can use a mix. Having the skin on makes for juicy chicken but you can use skinless chicken
  • 2 tbsp full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil https://amzn.to/3wUlG5g
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp ginger grated
  • 1 tbsp paprika https://amzn.to/3spvaSK
  • 1 tsp cumin https://amzn.to/3wWqNSJ
  • 1 tsp coriander https://amzn.to/3dpzgWQ
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper optional, skip it if you prefer milder flavor
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder https://amzn.to/3n4t75D
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala https://amzn.to/3uWM5h3
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper https://amzn.to/3ebVk66

  • Pull the skin back and make slits on the chicken using a sharp knife and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix all the other ingredients and whisk together until you have a thick paste,
  • Add the chicken and rub the marinade on the chicken really well, getting into all the cuts you made.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to up to 24 hours. The longer you leave the chicken to marinate, the better the flavor.
  • Spray some nonstick cooking spray on the bottom of the air fryer and arrange the chicken.
  • Spray the top with oil and cook at @370° F for 30-35 minutes, turning it halfway or until the chicken is done.
  • You can also bake this chicken in a preheated oven at 450° F for 30-35 minutes.
  • Another option is to grill on a gas or charcoal grill.
  • Serve with a salad.
