This Thursday (July 29) is National Chicken Wing Day.
For those who prefer to leave the cooking to others, B.C. Kitchen at Parq Vancouver serves four flavours: Buffalo, maple bacon, Korean BBQ, and lemon and pepper, and the sports bar has a special promotion underway this week until Saturday (July 31). Diners can choose between 10 wings for $10 (with a choice of two flavours and dip) or 20 wings for $18 (four flavours and dip).
But for those who want to enjoy chicken wings at home, B.C. Kitchen is sharing its recipes for its wings and some of its sauces.
