You can have your cocktail and wing it too

Before you know it, you'll be marinating your chicken wings in all kind of booze.

I am a firm believer that alcohol belongs in food as much as it does in a bottle, so I paired gin, with its nice woodsy undertones, with the sweetness of brown sugar for a Gin and Lemon Chicken Wings recipe so easy that you can prepare it during commercials.

Servings: 4


4 pounds chicken wings, at room temperature
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup Gin
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
  1. Preheat your oven to 425ºF
  2. Whisk all the ingredients together, except the wings.
  3. Toss the wings in the mixture, making sure they are completely coated. 
  4. Line a baking sheet with foil and place the wings on the foil in a single layer. 
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until cooked through.
