Chicken Wings FAQ
Cooking with chicken wings tends to be a straightforward process, but there are places people may go wrong. Overcooking or undercooking is a common issue. To prevent this, it's best to use a meat thermometer for accurate results. It's also essential to thoroughly season your wings to bring out their flavor. Not patting your wings dry before cooking can cause them to steam rather than get that crispy finish. Another tip for extra crispy wings is to bake them on a wire rack instead of a baking sheet. This allows the hot air to circulate evenly around the wings. A little known tip when working with chicken wings is that they can be split at the joint into two parts: the drumette (similar to a drumstick) and the flat. This increases the surface area of the wing that gets crispy and can make them easier to eat. It also means your seasoning or sauce can better coat the wings. Additionally, save the wing tips! They don't have much meat on them, but they're excellent for making stock.

• Always store chicken wings at 40°F (4°C) or below. If there's room, separate them out in the refrigerator so they cool more quickly. • To store chicken wings in the freezer, wrap each piece individually in plastic wrap before placing them in a freezer bag. This will prevent freezer burn and keep your wings at their best quality. • To defrost chicken wings, place them in the refrigerator overnight. If in a hurry, you can also use the defrost function on your microwave, but be careful not to start cooking them. • Avoid re-freezing thawed chicken wings to preserve quality and prevent bacterial growth.
