All the chicken wing news that's fit to print during Super Bowl Week.
It's Super Bowl week, and the hype for "The Rematch" is inescapable. But almost as ubiquitous as the coverage of the game are recipes for Super Bowl worthy snacks. Specifically, countless recipes for chicken wings are taking over the internet. It just may break under the heat of Frank's Red Hot mixed with butter. Not that there's anything wrong with this. Be they glazed with teriyaki or Scotch Bonnet sauce, jerked or smoked, drumettes or flatties, chicken wings certainly deserve their own week in the national spotlight. Unless they are boneless. That's just creepy. Without further ado, here are a handful of wing-related articles and recipes from the web.
