Air Fryer Chicken Drumsticks Recipe Ingredients:

Egg Bowl:

Breadcrumbs Bowl:


  • Set up your bowls. Add the flour bowl ingredients into one bowl, add the egg ingredients into another and the breadcrumbs ingredients into a third. Mix the bowls well so that the eggs are beaten, and the seasonings are mixed well.
  • Pat dry your chicken drumsticks and then load them into the flour, the egg and then the breadcrumbs. Making sure with each bowl the chicken is getting submerged and well coated.
  • Carefully place your chicken drumsticks into your air fryer. If using the air fryer oven fill 2 shelves.
  • Cook for 48 minutes at 180c/360f.
  • If using the air fryer oven, swap the shelves halfway through cooking. If using the air fryer basket, you may need to reload with a second batch depending on your air fryer size.
  • Serve with your favourite sides.


You can use panko if you prefer. But I love to use breadcrumbs from rustic bread as the crust makes much better breadcrumbs.
Grainy mustard works great with the eggs and gives it a wonderful southern fried chicken taste.
