Pickle flavored things are every where. And now I’m sharing with you these Dill Pickle Chicken Wings. And you’re going to be obsessed.
You have GOT to brine.
I mentioned on my Brined Fried Chicken post, how much brining chicken really helps with the flavor and keeping it tender. And as it turns out, pickle juice is one of the best brines for chicken. I even use it on my recipe for popcorn chicken.
After you brine the chicken wings, its important to rinse them and pat them dry. This helps keep them from being too salty.
Next, toss the chicken wings with a mixture of dill, salt, pepper and granulated garlic.
Finally, bake them until they’re golden brown and crispy.
When you go out for chicken wings, most of the time the wings are fried. When I make them at home, I prefer baking them. You can still get them nice and crispy.
One of my favorite tips for crispy baked chicken wings is to cook the wings on top of a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet. This ensures that air circulates around the chicken as it bakes which yields much crispier skin.
Bake the chicken wings at 425 degrees for 25 minutes. Turn the chicken and bake for an additional 10 – 15 minutes or until the skin is golden brown and crispy.
I love to serve potato wedges with my baked chicken wings.
And of course, every good chicken wing also needs a dip. Dipping these Dill Pickle Chicken Wings in Creamy Ranch Dip is a match made in heaven!
