From the Test Kitchen

Chefs, wing night just got a major upgrade. In this recipe, we’re serving a platter of crispy-skinned wings­­, roasted twice and glazed with a classic barbecue sauce­. To turn this crowd favorite into a satisfying dinner, we’re pairing our wings with a creamy sweet potato salad, livened up with a sprinkling of smoked paprika and scallion. A quick coleslaw made with seasonal cabbage and carrots rounds out the meal.
