Are chicken wings the quintessential American food? If not, they're certainly near the top of the list. You can get them at practically every sports bar and chain restaurant because we can't seem to get enough of that crispy fried chicken skin, spicy buffalo sauce, and cool, creamy dip. Americans love them so much that there's even a special day just to celebrate chicken wings, and it's coming up this weekend.
