For the love of chicken wings!

Cheers to a 44 years legacy of celebrating this scrumptious dish around the world! Chicken wings are called dearly with so many names like hot wings, buffalo wings, wings etc. but we love them all at the same level, don’t we? Filled with flavourful spices and yummy sauces, crispy on the outside, juicy and tender on the inside, how can someone not love this culinary beauty that defines perfection? Even though the recipe for chicken wings is pretty simple, there is some magic to its taste, making them irresistible. The definition of perfect chicken wings is decided by 3 factors. On the outside, it has to be crispy, crunchy so that when you take a bite you must hear that “krrrrr” sound. The second factor is the inside; the chicken has to be cooked till it’s juicy and soft on its interior. The third factor plays an important role which is sauces and flavour, the essence and the whole vibe of the dish depend on this. If you’re having a bad day, a party, a get-together, family occasion, colleague meetings whatever the situation might be, a box of chicken wings makes everything nice and happy! We all know how people are crazy for this delicacy and that’s why there’s an entire day dedicated to it. Celebrate International Chicken Wings Day with us today and try out some exciting versions in your kitchen!

Let’s start with some Indian tadka. This is going to be your show-stealer which is baked and not fried so you can go for that extra piece too. Marinated in yogurt and aromatic spices, it’s a sight to behold when you take it out freshly baked from the oven. Do not forget to serve it hot with slices of lemon and onions!

  1. Tex Mex Chicken Wings

Classics always remain regal and some extra flavours will not harm anyone! Add some flair flavours to your regular chicken wings with this Worcestershire sauce and tanginess of tomatoes. This fusion of Texan and Mexican cuisine will make you crave more!

  1. Hot Thai Chicken Wings 

We usually think of chicken wings as an appetizer and a starter but these chicken wings can be served as a main course with fried rice. Flavours of authentic red Thai curry paste, ginger and peppercorns, and Thai cuisine's authenticity is an exotic and perfect match for your simple fried rice.

  1. Fried Chicken Wings With Chilli Pineapple Sauce

Let’s give some twist and flavour of a popular fruit to this delicious delicacy. This is one unique recipe that involves a lot of flavours as they are marinated with spices, soya sauce, a splash of lemon and some aromatics, fried to perfection and served with a sweet-sour pineapple sauce. One bite, so many flavours!

  1. Gangnam style chicken wings 

We all love chicken, be it a kid or an adult. And we already are crazy fans of the spicy chicken wings. Now, it's time for some sweet and hot wings. The addition of brown sugar in the delicacy enhances the dish's whole essence, and you must definitely not miss out on this!
