Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Drumsticks

We have been making practically every single meal in our air fryer lately.

It’s still pretty hot here in St. Louis, so heating up the kitchen isn’t really an option. Nor is it that fun.

I love my air fryer, it’s easy to use, quick to fry delicious food and saves me so much time in the kitchen.

It’s also simple to clean, which I also appreciate. No trying to figure out what to do with a pot full of grease.

These Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Drumsticks are a quick and easy meal. They tend to be one of my go-to meals on busy school nights.

Let’s face it. Busy nights require easy meals, but we still want to make delicious food.

The air fryer makes this easy and will fry almost anything that can be fried.

We love drumsticks, but this recipe could work for wings, breasts or any other cut of chicken to be honest.

We use it for many different things, and you can change it up to the way your family likes it too.

How do I know my chicken is ready?

When you are done cooking your chicken, be sure and use a meat thermometer to test the chicken to be sure it is cooked to a safe temperature. 

Chicken should be 165 degrees internally to be consumed safely.

If for any reason it has not reached that temperature (please remember that all air fryers are different and it will depend on how frequently you opened it to check and how long you had it open), add 2 minutes and go from there.

Lovely, but where does the parmesan come in? We sprinkled over once cooked.

The Parmesan is usually added with the herbs and spices at the start so it's fully coated, but we've done it the way you mentioned and it's equally as fantastic. We are so happy you liked them!
