Chicken wings are a crowd-pleaser at any event, but backyard grilling is really where they find their time to shine. When it comes to prepping your wings before hitting the grill, what is the best way to ensure your chicken isn’t undercooked or overcooked and dry?
According to The Spruce Eats, parboiling the chicken wings is a great way to make sure your chicken stays moist. Another benefit of parboiling the chicken, which means boiling ahead of time, is that the chicken will cook evenly, regardless of the size of the individual pieces.
Additionally, parboiling can significantly reduce the cooking time, according to Tastessence. Martha Stewart takes it a step further by brine boiling, which gives extra flavor to your chicken, while also protecting it from overcooking.
