Add the drumsticks to a large bowl. Pour olive oil, spices and salt over the drumsticks and stir well (I use tongs) to ensure the chicken is fully coated.
Preheat the air fryer to 400F (if necessary for your brand).
Add foil to the bottom of the air fryer basket (optional). Make sure the foil does not reach all the way to the edge, you want air to flow around the foil still.
Add the drumsticks to the air fryer basket in a single layer. Do not stack, instead cook in batches.
Cook at 400F for 18-22 minutes (depending on the size of the drumsticks).
After 13 minutes of cooking, pause the air fryer and carefully flip the drumsticks (I use clean tongs). Continue cooking at least 5 more minutes.
After 18 minutes, use a digital thermometer and check the temperature of the thickest part of the chicken, without hitting the bone. You want at least 165F.
If you want to ensure the chicken is super tender and falling off the bone, cook to 180F (this may take a few more minutes depending on the size).
If you are feeding a family of 4, you will want to double all the ingredients and cook in two batches in a smaller air fryer. If you have a larger air fryer (like the Breville), you will need to preheat the air fryer before adding the chicken and increase the temperature to 415F. If you do not have an air fryer, you can make drumsticks in the oven as well!Store leftovers in the fridge up to 3 days or in the freezer up to 3 months in a freezer safe container or ziplock bag. Reheat chicken in the air fryer 4-6 minutes at 400F to recrisp the skin.
