The History Of Chicken Wing Day

Chicken Wings might seem like a common item in American cuisine now, but it wasn't always that popular. 

Rather, chicken wings were considered the part of the chicken that could not be consumed. It was also used for making stock. 

Chicken wings started gaining popularity in the 1960s when a bar owner in Buffalo, New York began serving them.

Teressa Bellissimo, the co-owner of the Anchor Bar located in Buffalo, was searching for a way to get rid of the extra chicken wings she had. 

She deep-fried those wings and tossed them in some spicy sauce, and this dish became an instant hit. As a result, it was added as a regular item on the menu and word started spreading quickly.

Soon, other restaurants started picking up and coming up with their own versions of chicken wings.
