Spicy foods like blazing chicken wings make the perfect appetizer or party food. The sauce of these mini chicken pieces makes for a messy meal, but there is a neater way to eat this hot treat. Don't eat your hot wings right off the bone -- pull the flavorful meat away and have cooling condiments ready for heat relief. Cooling dips bring down the heat factor and make eating your chicken a little easier.
Pour ranch or blue cheese dressing into a small bowl. Plain yogurt or sour cream make good dips, too.
Pick up the flat chicken wing, positioning the larger end of the wing to the right. Pull the cartilage plug out of the chicken tip.
Grasp the lower skinny chicken bone and tug the bone out. You may need to twist the bone slightly before it releases.
Hold the skinny or left end of the wing tightly while pulling the remaining large bone out. Pull and twist the bone out.
Dip the remaining skin and meat in your cooling condiment. Eat the blazing meat and follow it up with your favorite drink.
