This recipe serves 4-6

What you’ll need:

  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • ¾ cup plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander seeds
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • salt, to season
  • 500g chicken wings
  • 500g chicken drumsticks
  • extra virgin olive oil cooking spray
  • chipotle mayo and lemon wedges, to serve


  1. In one large bowl, whisk together buttermilk and mustard. In another large bowl, stir together flour, paprika, coriander and garlic powder.
  2. Sprinkle salt over chicken wings and drumsticks, then add to the buttermilk mixture. Mix well until chicken is evenly coated. 
  3. Transfer the chicken to the flour bowl and toss again until evenly coated. Remove chicken from the bowl onto a tray, and spray all over with olive oil. 
  4. Place chicken into the XXL Philips Smart Airfryer basket. Select the chicken drumsticks program from the smart chef programs, and press the dial to begin cooking. Hot tip: To check that your chicken wings and drumsticks are cooked through, either cut one open and ensure there is no pink chicken remaining or use a meat thermometer and check the temperature has reached at least 70C. 
  5. Serve with chipotle mayo and lemon wedges

I mean, if that’s not the ideal recipe for your next group dinner, I don’t know what is. Oh, and if you don’t have an air fryer and would like to check out the Philips option, you can do that on Amazon.
