Chicken wings have a higher skin to meat ratio than any other part of the chicken. You can't easily notice, but the skin of the chicken wing helps create that succulent feeling in your mouth in a couple of bites. It also appeals to the eyes due to the bone and size.
You can eat a lot of the chicken wings with much ease compared to let's say crab in the shell or fish with bones whereby you have to slow down to get each morsel. That's the reason why you can snack on them with a lot of ease any time, any day.
Chicken wings are relatively high in protein. They also contain potassium and iron. Cornstarch acts as a thickener here and also helps in absorbing the chicken juices while baking. To get the maximum health benefits from your chicken, you are better off baking them rather than frying. During baking, you get to infuse all the nutrients within the meat, and your wings get to cook gently. If you fry them you, take away most of the health benefits that you get from choosing chicken as your primary source of protein.
Labels on chicken wings can be deceiving, especially if you are buying them from the stores. When buying chicken, you should look for creamy white to yellow birds and avoid those with bruises and blotched marks. You can buy the chicken, and if not using it immediately, you can keep it for up to 2 days in your freezer. Ensure that you store it in an airtight container first.
You can cut a whole chicken wing into three pieces: the drumette, the flat, and the tip. But whether you are cutting it into smaller pieces or not depends on your recipe. When you're handling chicken, you should maintain proper hygiene to avoid salmonella bacteria, an infection which occurs due processing the meat in an unhygienic manner.
Taco Sauce has intense flavors, and it adds to the creamy texture of your meat. You can even make your taco sauce at home. Drunken Taco wing is so delicious and easy to prepare.Try making them one of these summer days and get your family entertained.
