TODAY IS INTERNATIONAL CHICKEN WING DAY
It doesn’t seem to matter where you go, chicken wings are finding themselves onto every conceivable menu around the world. There seems to be as many variations on a theme as there are cuisines to go with them, from parmesan garlic crispy wings to honey barbecue wings with a soft rich breading, there is no limit to what these delicious bits of bird flesh can make better.
With such variety available, it’s unsurprising that they have become so popular as a snack food for everything from celebrating huge sports events, to birthday parties, and even weddings. It’s so easy to coordinate this dish with anything else you happen to be serving! Cooking Mexican? Then soak them in a chili sauce and light your mouth afire, preparing Italian, the parmesan Garlic wings mentioned earlier are perfect, and this is just a beginning.
