Recipe Notes

* Cook from Defrosted
* No Oil Necessary
* Turn over after 15 minutes

Seasoned with Poultry Seasoning and Garlic Salt. Very moist and the skin is nice and crispy if one chooses to eat it!

If possible, use a meat thermometer to check that the Turkey Leg is cooked near the bone. I recommend something like the Thermoworks Thermopop as it's very accurate and very quick to give a reading. I bought one a few months ago and it's brilliant.

    I preheated my air fryer and put the leg in for 30 minutes and it read 180* but when I pulled the meat thermometer out bloody juices came out….definitely not done. Put it back in….makes me nervous——gonna check it again in 10 minutes

      That’s odd candice. Maybe the air fryer isn’t reaching that temperature. Alternatively make sure it’s set to Celsius or Fahrenheit depending on where you live. If you are in the USA that temperature should be in Fahrenheit so 180 Celsius is around 360 degrees Fahrenheit.
