Ingredients

Chicken:

  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp salt, pepper, ground cumin and garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cardamom, crushed fennel seeds and sweet paprika
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon, hot smoked paprika and cayenne pepper
  • 2 lb bone-in, skin-on chicken drumsticks (about 8 pieces)

Tahini Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp tahini paste
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
  • Pinch cayenne pepper


methodology

1. Chicken: In large bowl, whisk together chickpea flour, sesame seeds, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic powder, cardamom, fennel, sweet paprika, cinnamon, hot smoked paprika and cayenne pepper.

2. Pat chicken dry with paper towel; toss in chickpea flour mixture until well coated. Place on parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for about 1 hour or until coating is dry and forms crust on the chicken.

3. In two batches, place chicken in basket of CRUX 2.6 Quart Touchscreen Air Convection Fryer (do not overfill basket.) Spray chicken with cooking spray.

4. Press POWER. Choose POULTRY from preset menu. (Temperature: 360˚F and Time: 20 minutes will appear on the display.) Air-fry chicken, turning once, until golden brown and temperature reads 170°F when inserted in thickest part of chicken without touching the bone.

5. Tahini Sauce: Meanwhile, place tahini in small bowl; gradually whisk in lemon juice and yogurt until smooth. Stir in parsley, garlic, salt, pepper and cayenne. Serve with chicken.


Tips:

  • For extra spice, add harissa paste to tahini sauce to taste.
  • Serve with lemon wedges and garnish with chopped fresh mint if desired.
