Crispy, tender, flavorful, palatable, juicy and addictive.They are the kind of food you eat with abandonment, licking your fingers clean. A few, are never enough to help you reach your satiety or even fulfill the devilish gourmet desire inside of you.
In real life, they could symbolize defeat and failure, since they simply render broken wings, when in the world of food, they simply are everyone’s favorite appetizers known as Chicken Wings.
Chicken Wings are a little bit of chicken and a lot of skin. Skin is mostly fat. Then it’s fried. Finally, it’s coated with sauce and sometimes dipped into blue-cheese dressing.
Two tablespoons of blue-cheese dressing contain 170 calories.
Each wing is about 100 calories without the dipping sauce.
That means a dozen is about 1,200 calories.
1200 Calories, is the recommended daily intake of many persons to maintain their body weights.
Washed down with a few beers, they help you surpass your whole day’s recommended calorie intake.
“Sticking feathers up your butt, will never make you a chicken” therefore, think twice before choosing your appetizers and choose the healthy side of your grilled chicken!
