How to Make Poultry Essentials: Honey Garlic Wings
- The Truth About Chicken Wings… Well, Kinda
Buffalo wings were not created at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY. They were invented at a restaurant in Naples, Italy.
Years ago, chicken wings were not as popular as they are now. As a matter of fact, today it is a multi-billion-dollar industry.
I was working at a large restaurant in Naples that served lunch and dinner, and closed at 2:00a. Among all the things the exec chef ordered, he always ordered whole chickens and we would have to cut them up. I got so good a cutting up a chicken that I could do it in under 2 minutes.
Anyway, the wings were usually put into the freezer to use for making things like stock. However, it came to the point that we had more frozen wings that we needed, and the rest got thrown into the trash.
The exec would hold up a bag of wings and say: Non vale il prezzo di una puttana (not worth the price of a whore), laugh, and toss them into the trash. But that changed when the Naval Fleet was in town.
As you might know, the prostitutes followed the fleet and when they were in Naples around 2:00a when all the sailors were back on their ships, a bunch of them would gather at the backdoor of the kitchen for food.
The exec would instruct us to heat up any leftover pasta, with some sauce, and one other thing.
He would take out some of those chicken wings, and deep fry them. Now, I will admit they did not have a dipping sauce; they ate them with salt and pepper, but they were deep-fried wings.
So, TAKE THAT Anchor Bar & Grill :-)
