Why are spicy chicken wings are addictive?
They’re a favourite among sportsmen and Hollywood celebrities. So when you have them on a takeaway, you know it’ll go down well. And of course, no conversation with pals is complete without talking about the sensation when you get to your tummy.
Chicken wings are high in natural sodium and all kinds of chemicals to numb the sensation and kill the pain. Allowing those body’s natural pain killers to do their job.
It’s not as hot as it looks. They’re not the fiery item you get at a McDonald’s drive thru. It’s all about the heat at the tip and the coating.
Lots of people love a bit of heat in their food, especially when they’re not in the mood for a full on spicy chilli. Many people like to keep the heat level between ‘fridge-hot’ and ‘leather-on-the-back-of-the-hand’ kind of hot. And that’s fine.
They taste that good. But are there really calories to worry about? Most chicken wings are just three calories for a serving, that’s half a muffin.
And don’t forget, you can even have them as a meal.
We should also take care of the fact that drinking alcohol is not recommended before eating. Keep the cooler side up.

Yes. Have chips before you eat wings, it’s an easy way of ‘saying yes’.
7. Are there any dangers in eating too many?
Sadly yes. Chicken wings can cause serious damage to the liver if consumed in large quantities. But there is also risk of death. It’s the main reason why food comes in trays.
8. Vegetarian or vegan options
Yes, there are many ways to make a tasty meat-free alternative with sautéed vegetables.
It’s not the most expensive item on the menu. Depending on where you go it’s less than £5. Most places provide a kids’ plate with juice, a quarter of a wings or two small slices of a traditional chicken wing, depending on the size of your family.
