Baked fried pan grilled jerk chicken wings in buffalo barbecue sauce

Mmm…chicken wings in America are really good.

I’m in Washington, D.C. for work at the moment. I was recently chatting with an American friend on Twitter about barbecue food and she mentioned chicken wings. I love chicken wings. As much as I am a ‘thigh man’, chicken wings are fantastic. The meat is always tender and sweet and it’s relatively easy to get the skin to be nice and crispy.

I thought I would take the opportunity while I am in the USA to try some barbecue chicken wings.

I ordered some from the room service menu. They arrived hot and smelled really good.

Unfortunately, the room lighting was poor. I had all the incandescent lamps on and in a dark room the yellow cast was very pronounced.

The wings were good. The skin was crispy, salty and sweet with a little tang. The meat was moist, tender and soft enough to be sucked off the bone. The serving size was also generous. I forgot to add the blue cheese sauce into the photograph. My friend asked if I had some. Indeed I did.

I’d happily eat these again.

I also ate a nice ribeye steak with the bone in last night.

I went to another place with colleagues and enjoyed a nice pork chop with Brussels sprouts cooked with bacon and a side of Mac and cheese. That was really nice.

I spent a little time at the Capitol building and got to sit in and watch a couple of senators make speeches on national security.

  1. Your posts are like stories. My mouth is watering now, and I’m not even a food person. But all I can think about is chicken wings.

  2. Great, now I’m going to have to get wings sometime this week…it’s a good (/very good) problem to have!

    And mac & cheese as a side should be mandatory (like french fries seem to be here in the States). We had it at our wedding, and I would probably get it everywhere if I had it as an option.

    1. I had so much Mac and cheese last week. Next winter here I’ll be eating a lot more of it as comfort food.
      I hope the Elf doesn’t take any of your wings 😃
