This recipe is for leftover cooked turkey legs, presuming you have any left after roasting the bird and digging in! I love the air fryer for reheating the legs, it crisps the skin up to a cracklingly beautiful finish. It also brings that dark meat back to a juicy lusciousness.

I prefer 350F degrees here to slowly reheat, and ultimately crisp. I fear higher temperatures might overly cook the skin, leading to smoking and burning, and the dreaded dry turkey.

In the above picture the leg comes form a 12lb bird. If you’re reheating legs from a larger turkey you might want to slightly adjust the timing upward.

Please ensure your food is always thoroughly cooked. We recommend investing in a good kitchen thermometer. Our favorite is this affordable unit from Habor We get a small referral fee for any purchases made through Amazon. Find other accessories here.
