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 425°F.
  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.
