Any plans for Friday night? What about a juicy, crispy, delicious chicken that is done 30 minutes? This is my “Crispy chicken drumsticks” Dredged in a mix of flour, cornmeal, and spices then air fried to golden perfection.
We enjoyed this chicken with a side of creamy mash potatoes and veggies. Gone in minutes!
Depending on the size and number of chicken drumsticks you are making, you might need to cook the chicken in two batches. If you do, turn your oven to the warm feature. Place a rack on a baking sheet and transfer the chicken once is done. Keep it in the oven while the rest of the chicken is ready. The rack will help the air circulate around the chicken and will keep it crispy.
6-8 Chicken Drumsticks
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup corn meal
3/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon old bay seasoning
1 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Lemon wedges and garlic to garish
In a bowl, mix the flour, corn meal, onion powder, paprika, garlic powder, old bay seasoning, salt and pepper.
Dredge each chicken drumstick into the flour mixture shaking off the excess, transfer to a plate.
Spray the Air Fryer basket with cooking spray and place the chicken in.
Spray the chicken with cooking spray and bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. You don’t have to flip the chicken at all, just let it be.
The internal temperature of the chicken should reach 165 degrees when done.
Let it cool for five minutes. Serve with lemon wedges and garnish with parsley.
Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
