Game-Day Wing Recipes
Fried Chicken Wings
Alex Hitz, author of My Beverly Hills Kitchen, soaks chicken twice in the egg-milk mixture and double-dredges in the highly seasoned flour for a superior crust.
Sweet Orange-Chili Wings
Skip the mess that comes with deep-frying wings in oil with this smart oven-baking trick: Coat your chicken wings in baking powder. Yep, baking powder—this easy hack makes for exceptionally crispy skin. As soon as the wings are golden brown, toss them in this sweet orange chili sauce to get the party started. The dynamic sauce offers a subtle heat from the fresh ginger and chili flakes, balanced by sweet brown sugar and aromatic orange.
Salt-and-Vinegar Boneless "Wings"
The popular potato chip flavor translates fantastically to boneless "wings." OK, admittedly, they're basically chicken fingers, but for game day, we're calling them boneless wings. Be sure to line the baking sheet with parchment paper, as the chicken tends to stick to aluminum foil, even if it's coated with cooking spray.
Crispy Oven-Roasted Buffalo Wings
Skip the deep frying mess and preheat the oven instead. Think you can’t achieve super crispy, crackly skin wings in the oven? Think again. The trick is tossing them with an unexpected ingredient: baking soda. (Prepare to be amazed.) This technique allows you to make large batches of crisp chicken wings at once, which is obviously ideal when you’re hosting a Super Bowl party or other friendly gathering.
Sticky Asian Chicken Wings
Because the wings get a good bit of char, the type of honey you use isn't as important here (it'll lose its subtler nuances).
Boneless Stuffed Buffalo Wings
We don’t use the word “ultimate” lightly when we say, the time has come for the ultimate buffalo chicken experience. Using chicken breasts, we’ve created boneless chicken “wings,” which are stuffed with mozzarella and blue cheese, fried, and tossed in a finger-licking-good buffalo sauce before being served with your choice of ranch or blue cheese dressing. Talk about the perfect party food…
We found a secret trick to getting extra-crispy wings without frying. No longer will you be subjected to popping oil and a greasy mess just because you want to enjoy a grade-A plate of wings in the comfort of your own home. Instead, toss your wings in a light coating of baking powder (yes, baking powder!) and bake then in the oven. The result will be delightfully crunchy skin that’s perfect for a sweet and spicy sauce to cling to. This honey-Sriracha sauce fully marries the best of sweet and heat, and is well balanced by bright, tart lime juice.
Red Pepper Miso Wings
Skip the cream cheese and pepper jelly appetizer and use the red pepper jelly for something new. These sticky, yet crispy chicken wings take full advantage of the red pepper jelly flavor. The result is a hot, sweet, savory sauce with a vibrant color. Add scallions and fresh basil for an impressive festive-looking dish that is just asking to be taken to a holiday potluck.

Sweet-and-Spicy Chipotle Chicken Wings
Pile a plate high with skillet-fried wings, then drizzle with a tomato-based sauce flavored with honey, hot sauce, and lime juice. The wings have a nice spicy kick to them, thanks to the hot sauce and ground red pepper, so serve with Ranch or blue cheese dressing, for dipping, and vegetable slices to cool your guests down.
Tasty wings don't have to be all about barbecue sauce and deep-fryers. Try an appetizer with a zesty Asian-Creole blend. The marinade, made with soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, dry mustard and Creole seasoning, is sweetened with a hint of brown sugar. These wings need to marinade for about an hour, so get them going the morning of the game.
Thai Wings And Ribs
Experiment with bold and unique flavors at your next tailgate by serving Thai-flavored wings flavored with peanut butter, cilantro, and a tangy juice medley. Prep the wings the night before so that they can best absorb the flavors of the marinade, then bake for about 30 minutes just before fellow fans arrive.
Korean-Spiced Sticky Wings
Easy to make and oh-so-tasty, Korean-Spiced Sticky Wings will make a splash at your next bash.
Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings
Fried chicken wings aren't particularly Asian; in fact, the technique used here was borrowed from Matt and Ted Lee, the South Carolina-born brothers and cookbook writers. But the lime-chile sauce is a traditional Vietnamese condiment.
Honey-Sesame Chicken Wings
For tailgate connoisseurs, this Asian-inspired favorite is sure to score big. Fire up the grill and let these bite-sized babies cook for about six minutes each. The grill adds smoky flavor to the already tangy marinade, made from ginger, chili paste, honey, and hoisin sauce.
Margarita Chicken Wings
When your game-day tailgate calls for a pitcher of the good stuff, make a wing dish to match. Whisk together tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and salt to make the sauce, then marinate the wings overnight. Bake the wings for about 20 minutes at high heat to get the skin crispy while keeping the meat tender and juicy.
Twice-Fried Chicken Wings
Garnished with sesame seeds and scallions, these look (and taste!) just like your favorite restaurant wings.
Lemon-drop Chicken Wings
If you're pairing food with festive cocktails, the Lemon-drop Chicken Wing is the way to go.

They're over-the-top tender and oh-so delicious.
Tamil Chicken Wings
Go international with a wing recipe inspired by the flavors of Sri Lanka. Lemon grass, cilantro, garlic, and tumeric make a bold dry rub that's brightened by the smoke from the grill.

This spin on teriyaki wings is a hit with crowds, making it perfect for any get-together. The best part? The recipe only requires 4 ingredients!
Grilled Chicken Wings with Lemon-Pepper Sauce
You can’t go wrong with this basic recipe for perfect grilled chicken wings. A grilled wing is smoky, crispy, and an all-around delicious change of pace from its fried counterpart. You can dress your grilled chicken wings as you please (classic Buffalo sauce works or even a honey-sesame glaze), but we’d highly recommend giving this lemon-pepper sauce a go. You may be surprised to see jarred lemon curd in the ingredient list, however, a savory-sweet sauce is a brilliant way to use this convenience product. (After all, doesn’t your favorite barbecue sauce have a prominent element of sweetness?) The curd delivers a rich, lemony sweetness that’s balanced with aromatic sautéed garlic, brightened with fresh juice, and perfectly matched with a well-salted, savory grilled chicken wing.
