About the Brew

Lemon Rye is a citrusy beer as the name suggests but, it’s more than just one note. This mosaic pale ale is subtle and made with lemon peel and rye and then hopped with plenty of Mosaic hops. This creates a highly drinkable ale that’s got hints of citrus, earthy pine, tropical fruit. Enjoy this beer straight from the can or a Belgian tulip glass.

How to Make Citrus Chicken Wings

  • Combine marinade ingredients with chicken in a gallon-sized resealable bag. Refrigerate for 2-24 hours, turning occasionally.
  • Heat over to 350°F. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil and non-stick baking spray. Place chicken in a single layer and bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Set marinade aside.
  • Increase temperature to 425°F. Drain accumulated juices and turn chicken, baking an additional 10-15 minutes or until chicken is golden brown.
  • In the meantime, pour the marinade into saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer uncovered over medium heat 15-25 minutes, whisking constantly, until the mixture is reduced to about 1/3 cup and slightly thickened.
  • Place cooked chicken in large bowl, adding marinade and mixing until coated. Sprinkle with green onions and serve with a cool can of Lemon Rye.
