Chicken Bits

charmerang Mar 1, 2013 08:43 AM

I'm planning to make Chicken Parm this weekend and I want to use a whole chicken so I can use the odds and ends for stock. But I'm wondering what I should do with the wings and drum sticks.

I'm wondering if anyone has some interesting ideas that's not just tossing them in sauce or grilling them.

    Consider wings as "odds and ends." Cut off the drum sticks, put them in a Foodsaver Bag (if you have one) or a zip lock, press out the air and keep them for another time.

      Thanks but I was hoping for a recipe that calls for either just drumsticks or wings or both. I'm buying my chickens fresh from a free range farm so it would be a shame to freeze them.

      Braise the wings and drumsticks in some soy sauce, rice wine, rock sugar, ginger, star anise and five spice.
