  1. I made these tonight and they were very good. I did cook them an extra 5 minutes as they weren’t up to temp for poultry. I think I should have left them in for another 5 as they were a touch undone towards the bone, but still had excellent flavor. I subbed out a raspberry chipolte rub and a touch regular chili powder as that is what I had. Just the right amount of heat. I would make them again. Air fryer is so easy.
