  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Season drumsticks on both sides lightly with salt. Dip each drumstick into the egg mixture, followed by the cornflake mixture, rolling drumsticks and pressing down to ensure all surfaces are coated.

  • Spray the top of the chicken with cooking spray and place, sprayed side down, into the air fryer basket. Spray to top of the drumsticks - you may need to put the drumsticks on their side depending on how large they are.

  • Air-fry for 10 minutes and carefully turn them over. Lower the temperature to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C). Cook for an additional 10 minutes or until internal temperature of chicken is at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Check doneness after 5 minutes as drumstick size will determine time.

This is another excellent recipe for my air fryer. I made these exactly as directed and they turned out perfectly.....very juicy on the inside and perfectly crunchy on the outside. My wifey said to give this recipe as many stars as possible. I'll definitely be making this again! Read More
