      I think this would be a great air fryer recipe. I would cook it at 350 degrees. I am guessing bone-in pieces would take about 18-22 minutes to cook.

    Chicken looked nothing like the picture, and there was nothing in it that would make it spicy. That being said, it was still good. I did turn the chicken over half way through the cooking then put it on a cooling rack after i took it out so the bottom wouldnt get soggy. I would make this again.

    The chicken had good flavor, but the bottom of chicken was not crispy because of the butter. My chicken did not look like the picture.
