International Chicken Wing Day
International Chicken Wing Day is celebrated on 29th July of every year. Chicken wings, this dish has become one of the most attractive and must try a recipe on a menu in most of the restaurants and bars of United States. Chicken wing is also called buffalo wing is a delicacy made with an unbreaded chicken wing that is deep fried with different coatings and is usually served with blue cheese, plum sauce or celery sticks. Youngsters these days don’t move on to the main course without their favourite chicken wing starter. It seems to have become a more convincing dish.

History of International Chicken Wing Day
There is no particular history for International Chicken Wing Day. However, Chicken wing has a fascinating history behind. The first plate of Buffalo Chicken wings was said to be first served in 1964 by Teressa Bellissimo in a family establishment, Anchor Bar, New York. When Teressa’s husband’s friends came home, she had to make them a side snack. So, she cooked the chicken wings with her special home-made sauce and served them with blue cheese and celery, as she was only left with that. It was an instant winner, and its flavour was an absolute hit from then. There are more stories and origins to this dish, but the people in the city of Buffalo are not so worried about it. Instead, the northern NewYorkers decided to celebrate this fantastic dish on this day every year. This dish looks similar to chicken drumstick but a little smaller. The chicken is first profoundly fried, and later the flavours are added to them. The few of the variant flavours are BBQ, chilli garlic, honey garlic, garlic Parmesan, and orange honey.
