Brining Chicken Wings - Need some help

sprasad03 | Oct 20, 201402:09 PM     5

Hey guys,

I had a few quick questions in regards to brining. We created a brine for chicken wings and we usually brine them for an hour.I read the brine time should be based on the thickness of the meat.

1. What happens to the wings based on taste and quality if they brine for longer duration than 1 hour?

2. If we brine chicken wings for a hour, can we refrigerate them (out of the brine) for a few hours before we fry them? Does this affect taste or quality since we don't cook them immediately? How long will the brine wings last?

3. We use a double fry method, so after the 1st fry, would we able to refrigerate or freeze the wings for later use (if the 2nd fry was at later time)? If so whats the best way?
