4 drumsticks
1/4 c. milk (or almond milk)
1 egg
1/2 c. Barbecue Nut Crumbs
avocado oil

For the dip:

Use buttermilk ranch and some more BBQ sauce!


To start out, all the skin has to be removed from the drumsticks. While we love a good crispy skinned chicken, Nut Crumbs won't stick as well to the skin. 

Whisk together milk and egg in a small bowl.

Pour Barbecue Nut Crumbs out on a plate.

Holding the drumstick by the "stick" dunk in the egg mixture and then fully coat in  Nut Crumbs. 

Pro Tip: Any Nut Crumbs flavor would be delicious on these :)

Spray the bottom tray of the air fryer with avocado oil and place the drumsticks in the tray. Select the chick option and cook for about 15-20 minutes depending on how big the drumsticks are. The temp should be around 360 degrees in the air fryer. 

You can also bake these in a 375 degrees oven for about 30 minutes.

Serve with your favorite BBQ sauce or some homemade buttermilk Ranch dressing and enjoy!
