Big game super star
Posted: Friday, Jan. 31, 2014
So the big game is here, and I cant believe how fast the NFL football season flew by. Seems like yesterday that we were talking Panther training camp and now the season is almost over.
No matter where you go, or who you are with, every Super Bowl gathering will have the super star of the party chicken wings. No doubt there will be the classic hot sauce and butter version; (which are making my mouth water with the mere mention) but how about serving up a Hail Mary to your family and friends.
If you want to create a great chicken wing debate bring another version (or two). Here are a couple recipes, whether grilled, fried or baked these wing recipes are a sure way to bring some variety to the table.
