Chicken wings are a versatile and popular appetizer or main dish. They're easy to cook, but there is one simple tip to elevate them: brine them. Brining chicken wings makes them juicier and more flavorful.
To brine chicken wings, combine 1/2 cup salt and 1/2 cup sugar with 2 quarts of water in a large pot or container. Add the chicken wings and let them soak in the brine for at least 1 hour, or up to 12 hours.
When you're ready to cook the chicken wings, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and place the wings on the sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, or until cooked through.
If you want to add a bit of extra flavor to your chicken wings, you can brush them with your favorite sauce before baking. Try buffalo sauce, BBQ sauce, or honey mustard sauce.

Chef's Serving Suggestions
One of our favorite side dishes to serve with chicken wings is mashed potatoes. The creamy, starchy texture of the potatoes pairs perfectly with the smoky, spicy flavor of the wings. Another great option is a green salad with a vinaigrette dressing. As for sauces, a good BBQ sauce, ranch dressing or hot sauce are great choices.
