I don’t understand the concept of chicken wings.
I mean, you go out, get a basket of wings and get like, what? 0.009 ounces of meat total? It’s a total rip-off. And the work involved to get to the tiny morsel of meat is so not worth it.
I, for one, am a chicken leg kinda gal. Why don’t people go out for chicken legs? Now that’s where it’s really at! Perfectly portable, lots of flavorful meat. It’s messy finger food just like wings, but with a much better (and meatier) payoff. Gimme a leg or two and cold beer and I’m a happy girl.
So, I hereby nominate going out for legs as a “thing.” Let’s have 99 cent leg nights. Let’s serve legs at next year’s Super Bowl party. C’mon friends, support the legvolution! And you can get started with this sticky, sweet and incredibly delicious drumstick recipe. It totes puts your average bar wings to shame.
One thing that makes or breaks these legs is the quality of the chicken. Not only is local, responsibly-raised meat better for you and environment, but I also personally believe it tastes a heck of a lot better than the value packs you find on store shelves. Part of what made these drumsticks so amazing was that the meat under the sweet and sticky skin was so flavorful and juicy. Yum!
