America loves its chicken wings, never more than on Super Bowl Sunday: 1.2 billion chicken wings will be consumed this weekend alone, enough to circle the globe twice!
Truth to tell, we’re not a fan of such messy finger food (we don’t do messy well). That’s why we took an immediate liking to this recipe from HungryGirl.com: Buffalo Chicken Parfaits. We’ll be eating ours neatly, with a spoon.
Using pre-cooked chicken breasts (Hungry Girl uses Tyson Grilled & Ready), the prep time is 10 minutes, and there’s no cook time.
For those who don’t want to give up their fried chicken, here’s an elegant, “gourmet” recipe for deconstructed buffalo wings.
On the other end of the spectrum, there’s buffalo chicken pizza.

BUFFALO WINGS HISTORY
Buffalo wings were invented in 1964 at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo. Co-owner Teressa Bellissimo fried the wings, covered them in her own hot sauce and served them with a side of blue cheese and celery—because that’s what she had available. Here’s the full history of buffalo wings.
