Awwww yeah. Chicken wings! It's the food of the gods. But how to eat them?
You could go the knife-and-fork route...
...if you wanna look like a doofus.
You could attempt to take only the daintiest, teeny-tiny bites. But then it'll take ten minutes to finish a single wing. By that point, the rest of them will be gone! Not ideal.
Or, you can just go all out and try to cram as many wings as possible down your gullet.
Of course, this usually results in what would politely be referred to as a horrible, gross mess.
These methods all of have their drawbacks, but the worst one is that you miss out on so much chicken! There must be a better way to eat wings, right?
Yes! There is! The world's leading chicken scientists have spent the past few decades developing a better way to consume chicken wings.
Note: A chicken scientist is a human scientist that works with chickens. Not a chicken who is also a scientist (although obviously that would be way cooler).
So, what's the secret? Just follow two simple steps.
First, pull off the tiny piece of cartilage at the bigger end of the chicken wing.
All you have to do next is gently twist and remove the smaller bone, and then the larger bone. As long as the wing is properly cooked, the bones should slide out easily without any meat stuck to them.
And then? Eat the dang thing! After the cartilage and bones are removed, you're left with a delicious, bite-size nugget of chicken. A chicken nugget, if you will (only, way better).
Armed with this priceless knowledge, you can now go crazy and devour any chicken wings that find their way to your dinner plate. Don't forget the dipping sauces!
