Drums of heaven

Serves: 4 | Preparation Time: 10 mins | Cooking time: 25 mins


  • 6x Hazeldenes chicken drumsticks
  • ½ tsp of course salt
  • 1 level tsp of chilli powder
  • ½ tsp of paprika (optional)
  • 1 tsp each of onion and garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp of honey
  • 1 heaped tbsp of chilli sauce or sriracha
  • 1 level tbsp of soy sauce


  1. Wash drumsticks and pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl to create a smooth consistency. Rub all over chicken – at this point if you want to marinate it for later, just put it in an air tight container for later use.
  3. Pour 1 cup of water in the Ninja pot with a generous squirt of hot sauce or sriracha. Next, place the chicken in the air fryer basket (drums down, leg up to form a circle) and put the pressure cooker lid on. Turn to SEAL and set the pressure cooker to high for 10 minutes.
  4. When pressure cooking is complete, carefully switch the valve to VENT for quick release.
  5. Leaving everything as is (ie. the water at the bottom of the pot), close the air fryer lid and set the temp to 10 mins at 200°C. Make sure to turn over halfway. Air fry for an additional 2 minutes if you like your chicken crispy! Enjoy!
