5 different ways of chicken drumsticks

I know that with the bad economy people like to get the most they can out of meals. Chicken drumsticks are fairly cheap and there are alot of ways to prepare them. I found this recipe in a womans day magazine.

* 8 drumsticks (3 1/2 lb)
* 1 large egg
* Crunchy Coating, below
* Nonstick spray

Crunchy Coating

* 1 cup wheat germ
* 1/3 cup grated Parmesan
* 1/4 tsp each garlic salt and pepper


* 3 cups honey-mustard pretzel pieces
* 1/4 tsp pepper


* 3 cups tortilla chips
* 2 tsp each chili powder
* ground cumin

Krispie Ranch:

* 1 1/2 cups crisp rice cereal (Rice Krispies)
* 1 envelope ranch dressing mix


* 3 cups cheese crackers
* 1 tsp onion powder
* 1/4 tsp pepper


* 1 1/2 cups herb stuffing mix
* 1 tsp each onion powder
* paprika


* 3 cups french fried onion rings
* 2 tsp curry powder

1. Heat oven to 400ºF. Line a jelly-roll pan or shallow roasting pan with foil. Coat with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Skin chicken by grasping skin with paper towels and pulling off.
3. In a pie plate or shallow bowl, slightly beat egg. Coat a few drumsticks in egg at a time.
4. Place desired Crunchy Coating in plastic food bag. If using tortilla chips, stuffing mix, french fried onions, cheese crackers or honeymustard pretzels, close bag and crush with a rolling pin. Put 1 or 2 drumsticks in the bag at a time and shake to coat chicken evenly.
5. Place on prepared pan; lightly coat drumsticks with cooking spray. (If using fried onions or honey-mustard pretzels, do not spray.) Bake 30 to 35 minutes until chicken is cooked through and coating is browned.
