Chicken Wing Brine HELP!
I was planning on grilling some chicken wings tonight, and I have had them in a brine since this afternoon. But something has come up and I won't be grilling tonight.
What should I do? I know I can't leave the wings in the brine until tommorrow (too much water and salt ) - but if I drain them now will I lose all the benefits of the brine by the time I grill tommorrow?
Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appretiated!
Removing the wings from brine this evening will still return the moist goodness you expect with a bonus. Rinse and place wings on drying rack (a cooling grid dropped in a sheet pan). Let the wings dry in the fridge overnight. Skin will be fabulously crisp after grilling.
I use this overnight drying method for all of my poultry brining; whether grilling or smoking, I have been in crisp skin heaven since.
