Wine Tip

A heaping pile of perfectly cooked chicken wings wants nothing more than to be paired with a light, crisp pilsner. The beer is refreshing and nicely balances the full flavor of the wings.

In a large bowl, marinate chicken wings with salt, half of cooking wine, and half of dark and light soy sauce for approx. 10 min.
