3 chicken legs

50g cornflakes

30g all-purpose flour

40ml buttermilk

1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp ground sage

salt and pepper, to taste


Step 1

In a wide bowl or on a plate, season the flour with salt and pepper, then dip the chicken in the flour so it’s fully coated, then shake off any excess.

Step 2

Place the cornflakes in a resealable bag and ensure there is no air in the bag before sealing, then crush the cornflakes with a rolling pin.

Step 3

In a large bowl, mix the buttermilk, mustard, cayenne pepper, paprika and sage, then dip the chicken in the buttermilk and coat in the crushed cornflakes.

Step 4

Spray the chicken with oil and place in a 200°C air fryer to cook for approximately 5-10 minutes.

Step 5

Reduce the temperature to 190°C and cook for a further 10-15 minutes, checking that the chicken is thoroughly cooked before serving.
