Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Lollipops

Chicken lollipops are a welcome change from traditional air fryer chicken wings. 

Whether you prefer them spicy or tangy, these little delights are perfect for any occasion.

INGREDIENTS: chicken wing drumettes Panko breadcrumbs all-purpose flour egg cornstarch garlic powder smoked sweet paprika salt and pepper olive oil spray

Hold chicken at the meaty part while inserting a sharp knife near the end tip of the meat and bone until the meat is entirely separated from the bone. Then push down the chicken meat and form to resemble a ball.

Trim the excess chicken meat at the tip of the bone, but do not cut the bone. Shape the remaining chicken drumettes into the proper shape. Season chicken with salt, black pepper, and garlic powder and stand for 15 to 30 minutes.

Combine Panko breadcrumbs, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and smoked sweet paprika in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, add flour, cornstarch, salt, and black pepper then mix well.

Roll the chicken in the flour mixture and shake off excess flour.

Dip each piece in egg and allow the excess egg to drip.

Coat each egg-dipped chicken in seasoned Panko breadcrumbs.

Spray some oil on the Air Fryer tray. Place Panko breaded chicken on the Air Fryer tray. Spray more oil all over the chicken lollipops.

Dig in and enjoy!
