Jolly Barnyard chicken wings

Porter Road

Wings are an undisputed big game party must and it doesn’t get much better than these beauties from Porter Road. The chicken, which is pasture-raised on Nashville’s Jolly Barnyard, is all natural: no fillers or preservatives. They’re so flavorful and meaty you can keep things simple and throw them in the oven with a salt and pepper rub, or crank up the heat with a classic Buffalo treatment. If you’re planning a small gathering, the six-wing option should do the trick, but for a bigger bash you’ll definitely want the five-pound pack.$14 AT PORTER ROAD
