Celebrate International Chicken Wing Day

From hot sauce and sweet chilli to garlic parmesan and smoked barbecue wings, here are 5 places in the UAE to celebrate the day

You either love them or don’t; prefer them bone-in or boneless; fried, grilled or baked; or have them as a small snack or a big meal. But how did this dish get a whole day dedicated to it?

Chicken wings have been a popular plate for a while now. However, it has been said that after an accidental recipe invention back in the USA in 1964, Buffalo Wings cooked in hot sauce and served with a blue cheese dressing and celery sticks became a popular dish. This prompted a ton of famous brands to start serving them. Finally in 1977, a Chicken Wing Day was started in New York, growing over time to an international event!
