Badshahi Chicken Legs - Air Fryer

Although this chicken leg is grilled in the air fryer it is juicy and not dry. That's because I grill it with the marinade, hence the chicken does not dry out. Try this method and you will enjoy a juicy air fryer grilled chicken that is healthy and delicious.

2 Chicken Legs
½ Teaspoon Salt or to taste
½ Teaspoon White pepper powder
1 Teaspoon Ginger Garlic paste
2 Tablespoons Yogurt
2 Tablespoons Hung Curd
2 Tablespoons Cream
1 Egg white
A Pinch Freshly Grated Nutmeg
1 Tablespoons Corn flour
2 Tablespoons Ghee
Grind To A Fine powder
4 Whole Cashewnuts
1 Green cardamom powder
¼ Teaspoon Shahjeera
Rice for serving 

Prick and marinate chicken with all the given ingredients for at least 2 hours, I kept this over night.
Pre heat the air fryer at 165°F for 3 minutes.

Place the one chicken leg in an Pyrex dish along with half the marinade, in  the air fryer. Cook 20 minutes.
Flip chicken and increase the temperature to  180° cook for 10 more minutes. Check for doness, since it depends on your brand of air fryer. Again flip and keep it for 3 -5 more minutes until that sides gets grilled marks. 

Let it sit in the air fryer for another 2- 3 minutes.
A juicy grilled chicken legs is ready to enjoy.

  1. Loving the flavors in that marinade Sneha.

  2. So many beautiful flavors in this dish! It looks wonderful!

  3. I don't have an air fryer, sadly, so I'd have to cook this conventionally. So much flavor in that marinade! I'll bet it would still be tender and moist in the oven.
