I have heard that "buffalo wings" were invented when a bar in Buffalo, NY, received a large delivery of chicken wings by mistake. Faced with this windfall, they wisely cooked up piles of wings to serve in the bar that night, much to the delight of the lucky patrons. Eventually the concept went wild, and by the 80s they had become a staple at taverns and pubs.
I have also heard that the increase in demand for chicken wings results in a surplus of chicken breasts, and thus the "boneless chicken wing" was invented ... turns out they are really just sliced up chicken breasts and not actual chicken wings. I don't know if either story is true, but I do know that our recipe for Pretzel Boneless Wings is fab!
They're baked, not fried, with a light dipping sauce that is packed with flavor. So how about a handful of wings this weekend? Whether you're serving family or your favorite football fans ... these are sure to be a winner!
