When You Don't Have Wings But You Have Legs #Recipe @PegCochran

I was having a terrific craving for chicken wings--it happens about once a year.  I didn't want all the calories of traditional buffalo wings but I thought perhaps wings baked with a rub would do.  But this story has a sad ending--the grocery store had no wings.  None at all.  Not a single wing.

But they had drumsticks!  Okay, they're not wings, but you've got to admit, they're a little easier to eat and there's more meat on them.  I went searching for a recipe that had a nice flavorful rub and found this one somewhere on the web.  The amounts for the rub are for the original amount of chicken legs.  If, like me, you are doing fewer legs, reduce the rub accordingly. 

2 tbsp. light brown sugar
1 tbsp. sweet paprika
2 tsp. ground coriander
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
Salt & pepper to taste
16 small chicken drumsticks (3 to 4 lbs.)
Olive oil spray

Set air fryer for 400 degrees and preheat for about 10 minutes.

Make the rub:  Combine brown sugar, paprika, coriander, chili powder, garlic powder  and salt and pepper to taste.  (Use a bowl large enough to accommodate your quantity of chicken legs.)

Pat your chicken legs dry with paper towels and spray lightly with olive oil spray.

Add to bowl with spices and toss to coat.

Place in air fryer and bake for 10 minutes.  Turn and bake 10 minutes more or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.  (Timing may vary according to the size of your drumsticks.)

To bake in oven:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Place drumsticks on a rimmed baking sheet.  Turn after ten minutes and check temperature after another ten minutes.

The dead of winter takes on a whole new meaning in the new Cranberry Cove Mystery from USA Today bestselling author Peg Cochran!

On a night of heavy snow and bitter cold, newlyweds Monica and Greg are comfortably nestled before a warm fire when they’re roused by a late-night knock at the door. Surprised to find a troubled and confused woman on the doorstep, Monica is even more shocked when the woman vacantly utters that someone is trying to kill her. Sensing distress but not danger, Monica decides to help this mysterious woman, but her clouded recollections yield little—until she dredges up memories of her sister and a nearby home, where they find the woman’s sister, dead.

Unable to deny her own curiosity or the woman’s request for help, Monica begins digging into the suspicious death, only to discover a murky family history of valuable land, a bullying brother, an unscrupulous real estate developer, and endless rumors of good deeds met with bad blood. And when the trail of the killer begins to turn cold, Monica realizes that while the family wants to bury their sister, someone is out to bury the clues—and if Monica’s not careful, to bury her as well . . .

Includes tasty recipes!
