There's no doubt Americans love their chicken wings. On Super Bowl Sunday alone, Americans ate an estimated 1.4 billion wings — that's in one day! If you need an excuse to make or order your favorite wings, we have one: It's National Chicken Wing Day! Want to make your own? Try our finger-lickin' good lemon and rosemary chicken wing recipe!
