Where did chicken wings originally come from?

The invention of chicken wings occurred in Buffalo, New York, at the Anchor Bar in 1964. The bar’s owner, Teressa Bellissimo, mistakenly ordered a case of chicken wings when she meant to order a case of chicken necks, which her husband, Frank Bellissimo, used to make the Anchor Inn’s famous spaghetti sauce.
