Cooktop Cove: Up the flavor of your wings — and cut down on food waste — with pickle brine
When you finish a jar of dill pickles, the leftover brine usually goes right down the drain. And it's such a shame, considering how much flavor is still left in the jar! In the recipe below, that savory liquid is used as a brine to flavor something else entirely: chicken wings.
Pickle brine adds moisture and tons of flavor to the chicken, so you'll need very little by way of additional seasonings. Depending on how salty your brine is, you might or might not need a pinch of added salt. All you really need is a dill pickle-infused mayonnaise dip on the side to make this dish a new party favorite.
