Happy National Chicken Wing Day! Five Paleo wing recipes!

Monday, July 29th was National Chicken Wing Day — which naturally made me hungry for chicken wings!

wingsAccording to the National Chicken Wing Day’s Facebook page (yes, there is one!), in 1977, the chicken wing had gained national fame and then Buffalo, New York Mayor Stan Makowski proclaimed July 29th as National Chicken Wing Day.

Thousands of pounds of chicken wings are consumed each week in Buffalo and around the world.

wings2Chicken wings have been something the boyfriend and I have been making and eating frequently for dinner as of late — as they are incredibly easy to make and delicious — albeit messy!

Generally, we bake or deep fry the chicken wings, and then toss them in sauce — preferably homemade!

NOTE: None of these pictures are my own — I found them on the interwebs!

wings3I’ve made homemade Paleo barbecue sauce in the past, and it turned out great!

I also like tossing them with Frank’s Red Hot for a sort of buffalo wing flavor.

wings4Last week, the boyfriend got some seasoned chicken breading and actually breaded some of his chicken wings before deep frying them, and I’m told that was delicious!

FOX News released an article featuring 10 recipes to help folks celebrate National Chicken Wing Day: http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2013/07/29/10-ways-celebrate-national-chicken-wing-day/

This inspired me to scour the web for five fantabulous Paleo chicken wing recipes! Ready go!

Now, I haven’t actually made any of these recipes, so I can’t technically endorse them.

However, I’d be willing to bed they’re all delicious!
