I’m not sure when or how it happened, but I am addicted to chicken wings! I have always been partial to dark meat, legs and thighs, and I avoided wings like the plague, but in 2011 chicken wings are the only part of the bird I consume.
In January, while in California, I had chicken wings at Hooters for the first time. I think this is what sparked the addiction. After I got home when I had my moms chicken wings and noodle soup, that sealed the deal! I have eaten my moms chicken wings and noodle soup countless times, but this time the wings seemed to satisfy me in a way that they never have before.
I’m not sure why I have shunned the chicken wing in the past. Maybe it’s the retarded (yea, I used that word) part of the wing that you can’t eat that I found unappealing, or maybe because I have given up eating so much red meat and pork that chicken wings are an acceptable substitute.
In fact, I cooked chicken wings twice this week! I need more recipes folks, what are some other tasty ways to prepare chicken wings other than fried with hot sauce drizzled over them?
