Hot legs!

I confess that though I've chewed my way through enough chicken wings to levitate a dumpster I've never had the official Buffalo Wing.   And now I may never bother.  Here's why:

In this week's Food for Thought Nancy Leson makes a good case that hot Buffalo legs are a better idea.  It's hard to argue.  They're certainly chubbier than the wing.  And easier to hold on to.  Give them a try next time you your friends gather together for that exciting TV debate about whether dogs are better than cats.

Here's the story and the recipe.

"Left wing, chicken wing, it don't make no difference to me."

– Woody Guthrie
