Chicken Wing Day

National Chicken Wing Day will be celebrated on Saturday, July 29th. We’re giving you plenty of notice to plan your celebration!

Did you know the concept of cooking chicken wings in hot sauce started in 1964 when the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY created the first-ever chicken wing? These “Buffalo wings” were a smash hit and other restaurants soon jumped on the bandwagon. In 1977 the city of Buffalo officially declared July 29th to be National Chicken Wing Day.

What makes a good chicken wing you might be wondering? To start with it has to have a high ratio of meat to skin, and the skin must be crisp (nobody likes a chewy wing). The final all-important last key is the sauce/seasoning. Some like heat. Others like sweet. Purists will say you have to go the classic route with hot sauce, butter, and a little vinegar. It’s really a personal preference, and you truly can’t go wrong. All that matters is you enjoy them and get sticky hands and a little sauce under your nails when you’re done.
