The Great Chicken Wing Shortage of 2013! That’s all I’ve heard about on the talk shows during the run-up to Super Bowl XLVII. Apparently, the wings are in such high demand, that the other, less popular, parts of the chicken are creating a glut in the markets. Poultry Farmers are reportedly trying to figure out how to genetically modify their stock to breed chicks with additional wings and fewer legs, thighs and breasts . . . OK, so I just made that up, but really, this sounds serious!
Now, since the New England Patriot’s aren’t in the big game this year, I don’t know how excited I can really get about all this Super Bowl hoop-la, but I did want to offer a possible solution to the Chicken Wing Shortage.
Here is a recipe for “Buffalo Chicken Dip” that tastes just like you are eating Buffalo Wings. A friend from Syracuse gave this to me . . . not sure of the original source, but it will use up some of those extra chicken breasts and put less stress on chickens to produce additional wings! Give it a try . . .
Buffalo Chicken Dip2 pre-cooked skinless chicken breasts, shredded 8 ounces cream cheese, cut into cubes 1 cup Ranch salad dressing 2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded 1 cup hot sauce
Place all of the above ingredients in a crock pot & mix gently. Set to low heat and let warm for about 1 hour. Stir to blend and serve with tortilla chips or celery.
ENJOY! And may the better Harbaugh win!
