Fried chicken legs without the guilt?  Bring it on...

I make these often and they're seriously yummy, easy to prepare with ingredients you have in your kitchen, well, maybe you don't have smoked paprika, it's good stuff, just put it on your grocery list 😀 

  • 6 chicken legs
  • 3 tbs brown sugar
  • 1.5 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper - I love McCormick's Smokehouse Black Pepper for this recipe, well I love this Smokehouse Pepper for a lot of recipes...
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 1 tsp onion powder*
  • 1 tsp garlic powder*
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbs vegetable oil
  1. Add all dry ingredients to a large zip top bag and shake to mix well. Add chicken to bag with vegetable oil and shake until all the chicken in coated.
  2. Let chicken marinate in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. The longer the better. Overnight is best!
  3. Preheat air fryer for 5 minutes at 380 degrees (F). Add chicken to air fryer and use “air fry” setting at 380 degrees (F) for 18-20 minutes, turning chicken halfway through. Internal temperature of chicken should be at least 165 degrees (

    I'm a huge fan of Spice Way Onion and Garlic Granules.  They are a large package, 8 oz.,  I transfer to a pint Ball jar to use.  The flavor is amazing, so much better than the jars you buy in the store.  I linked them above when listing the ingredients.
