Undoubtedly, as we currently navigate our way through a global pandemic, good chicken wings have become our unofficial “essential worker”!

According to Fox Business, “Chicken wings may be more popular than ever, as American consumers housebound by the COVID-19 pandemic seek an alternative to meats less readily available after virus-related plant closings.”

Clearly, you could say that chicken wings are coming to our rescue!

Besides, I don’t know about you, but I’m really tired of eating at home every single day.

Recently, in our house, we have designated Friday nights as our take-out night.

So this past Friday we chose to get chicken wings.

Therefore it was very important that we chose wisely and got the best of the best!

The History of Chicken Wings

Did you know that the buffalo-style chicken wing became a ‘thing’ back in 1964?

Mmm hmm. That really doesn’t even seem like that long ago!

The recipe was invented by the owner, Teressa Bellissimo, of a Buffalo, NY restaurant called Anchor Bar.

Yup! That’s the same Anchor Bar we have right here in little ole Frederick!

And, although Frederick’s Anchor Bar isn’t currently open as I write this, they plan to reopen very soon to accommodate all of Frederick’s chicken wing lovers.

  1. You killed me with all the pictures of the “crab” deviled eggs!! What’s funny is that I’m making crab cakes tonight–should have made the eggs instead, and the pictures of those “wings,” whew. I’m so hungry! Wings are one of my favorite foods. If I were stranded on a desert island, that’s my choice of food I could eat every day, ha!
    Great articles!!!!
    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
