Delicious Chicken Wings
Every Wednesday night, my kids attend our church’s youth group. I can usually be found volunteering to teach in one of the classes or in the nursery. Sometimes, I join with other parents for a little fellowship or an adult Bible study. One night was different though. My husband and I used the evening for a much-needed date night. We dropped our children off with some friends at the church and drove to a tiny restaurant, simply called “The Tavern.” We didn’t have much time, so we just asked for the evening’s special.
The waitress brought out a huge plate of chicken wings with both barbeque and a fiery hot version. They were plated next to celery sticks and carrots with a couple different sauces. They were delicious and Hubbyman mentioned that we should eat them more often. I agreed.
A few weeks later, my kids were going out to dinner with their grandparents, so I wanted to cook something fun for the two of us to share. I made a big plate of appetizers, with cheesy bacon bites, potato skins, and some hot chicken wings. Since then, chicken wings have become a regular part of our date nights. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Of course, we can’t only eat them on date night since our kids and our friends like them too. I’ve made a habit of cooking chicken wings when I host game day parties. I don’t give a hoot about who is playing normally, but I do love entertaining and feeding my friends and family delicious food.
This roundup of 30+ chicken wing recipes is a perfect way to kickstart your own game day festivities or even a fun, relaxed date night! And if you are worried about perfecting your chicken wings to restaurant quality, check out my tips on Crispy Baked Wings…for reals!
