Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 chicken leg quarters
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Mediterranean seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Mix Mediterranean seasoning, salt, and olive oil in a small bowl
  2. Use your fingers to spread the seasoning mix over the outside of both leg quarters, as well as underneath the skin
  3. Place leg quarters in a single layer in your air fryer basket and cook at 380 degrees F for 25-26 minutes, flipping halfway through
  4. Once the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F, take the cooked leg quarters out of the basket, put on a plate, and cover with aluminum foil to rest for 5-10 minutes
  5. After the leg quarters have rested, serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Season under the skin as well for the best flavor
  • Always wash your hands after handling raw chicken
  • Use tongs to flip them halfway through the cooking time
  • To check internal temperature (165 F) stick a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the thigh
  • Let each leg quarter rest for 5-10 minutes after cooking so the juices get reabsorbed
  • Finish with a squeeze of lemon juice and serve with a side of garlic tahini sauce
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container for 3-4 days
