  1. 4 chicken legs with bones and skin still on
  2. 4 large potatoes, cut into wedges and peeled
  3. 2. 5 cups of olive oil
  4. 2 tablespoons of pepper
  5. 1 table spoon of garlic powder
  6. 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  7. 1 teaspoon of dried thyme
  8. Half a teaspoon of dried rosemary
  9. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Chop some fresh parsley (optional, for decoration).

How to Do It:

First Step: Get the potatoes and chicken ready.

  • Warm up the air fryer: For about 5 minutes, heat your air fryer up to 375°F (190°C).
  • To make the potatoes, put the potato wedges in a big bowl and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and pepper. Toss the wedges around until they are evenly covered.
  • To make the chicken, rub the chicken legs with the last tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle them with salt and pepper.

Step 2: Fry the potatoes in the air fryer.

  • Make the potatoes: Put the seasoned potato wedges in the air fryer basket so that they are all of the same size. For 15 minutes, air fry the potatoes at 375°F (190°C), shaking the pan every so often, until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy. Take it out and set it aside.

Step 3: Cook the chicken in the air fryer

  • To cook the chicken, put the chicken legs in the air fryer basket with the skin side down. For 10 minutes, air fry at 375°F (190°C).
  • Flip Chicken: Turn the chicken thighs over and air fry for another 10 to 12 minutes, or until the chicken hits 165°F (74°C) inside and the skin is golden brown.

Step 4: Serve:

  • Put the chicken and potatoes from the air fryer on a plate and serve them hot. If you want, you can top them with chopped fresh parsley.

How to Get the Best Chicken and Potatoes in an Air Fryer:

  • Thighs of chicken: When you use bone-in, skin-on chicken legs, the chicken will be more juicy and flavorful. You can also use chicken breasts or drumsticks, but the cooking times will need to be changed.
  • For even cooking, cut the potatoes into pieces that are all the same size. You can leave the skin on to keep it healthy and add structure.
  • Seasoning: You can change the spices to your liking. To change things up, you can add smoked paprika, Italian spice, or even a little Parmesan cheese.
  • Make sure it’s done: Before you serve the chicken thighs, make sure they hit a safe internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) using a meat thermometer.
  • Various forms: Shred veggies like onions, bell peppers, or carrots and put them in the air fryer basket. This will make a full meal at once.
  • Storage: Any food that is left over can be kept in the fridge for up to three days in a sealed container. Put it back in the air fryer and heat it up for a few minutes more.
  • Any day of the week, you can make this simple and tasty chicken and potato recipe in the air fryer.
