With the flat wings, the taste & texture of the chicken skin is what I crave more than the meat. At the end of the day, I’m glad we each have our own preferences – people who are pro-drums and people who are pro-flats. Can you imagine serving wings at a party? It would not be fun if everyone was fighting to get the same piece. …
