In a small bowl mix lemon zest, olive oil, oregano, lemon juice, onion powder, black pepper, salt, garlic, brown sugar. For very intense garlicky flavor use 4 garlic cloves.

In a large bowl massage the chicken legs withthe marinade and leave it in the fridge for 30 minutes or 1-2 hours if you have more time.

Once the air fryer is preheated at 375 F, transfer the chicken into the basket and air fry for 10 minutes. Flip and air fry for another 10 min. 

Chicken should be darkened, browned and very crisp on the outside. You can garnish with extra lemon zest, lemon slices/wedges and fresh oregano or parsley.
