Air-Fryer Crispy Curry Drumsticks
These air-fryer chicken drumsticks are flavorful, crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Sometimes I'll add some red pepper flakes in addition to the curry powder if I want to spice it up a bit. I like to serve it with chicken-seasoned rice and boiled broccoli. —Zena Furgason, Norman, Oklahoma
