The 39 Best Chicken Wing Recipes for the Super Bowl (or Any Old Weekday)
It simply isn’t Super Bowl Sunday without a massive mountain of wings on the table. But you don’t have to stick to classic Buffalo sauce to get your fix—or impress your party guests (although we’ll never get sick of its buttery, spicy flavor). Read on for 39 of the best chicken wing recipes that star classic and modern sauces alike.
8. Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings
Finish them off with a spritz of lime and a sprinkle of chopped cilantro.
11. Baked Chicken Wings
To cut down on messiness, opt for coating the wings in a homemade spice rub instead of dousing them in sauce. This one stars smoked and regular paprika, dry mustard, garlic powder and onion powder.
12. Korean Fried Chicken
Bonchon has nothing on these double-fried, impossibly crunchy chicken wings coated in honey-soy, spicy Korean BBQ and classic Buffalo sauces.
15. Phnom Penh Cambodian-Style Fried Chicken Wing Recipe
Reason number 596 to always have fish sauce in your pantry. Instead of dunking the wings in creamy dressing, roll them in a mix of salt, black pepper and lime juice.
16. Truly Crispy Oven-Baked Chicken Wings
Choose your fighter: honey garlic, honey mustard, ranch, sriracha mayo or pink sauce.
19. Lemon Pepper Wings
A little fresh lemon juice, lemon zest and chopped herbs go a long, long way.
21. Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Wings
Complete with honey-Buffalo sauce. Thanks to the handy air fryer, these saucy gems are only 16 minutes away.
22. Sticky Honey, Garlic and Chile Glazed Chicken Drumettes
Sambal chile sauce is the source of all the glaze’s heat. Serve the chicken with a generous helping of crushed roasted peanuts and thin-sliced green onions.
24. Grilled Vietnamese Chicken Wings
Lemongrass and fish sauce are the keys to the overnight marinade’s unique flavor. TBH, no substitutes will do.
25. Coca-Cola Chicken Wings
You’re already loading the fridge with soda for the big game, right? Reserve a can to create a killer sauce that your guests won’t be able to put their finger on.
26. Chipotle Honey Baked Chicken Wings
Canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce pack a major smoky, sweet-and-spicy punch.
27. Sticky Mango Curry Oven-Baked Boneless Wings
Boneless wings mean you won’t have to clean up a bunch of stray chicken bones once the party is over (and that your guests can use forks and knives instead of their hands).
28. Baked Apple Butter Brown Sugar Wings
As if the autumnal four-ingredient glaze wasn’t enticing enough, wait until you try the sriracha cream drizzle.
29. Bourbon Honey Char Siu Wings
Char siu pork traditionally gets its vibrant red hue from red fermented bean curd, aka tofu that’s been preserved with red yeast rice or red rice koji.
31. Extra Crispy Air Fryer Naked Chicken Wings in Vietnamese Fish Sauce
Despite its bold, umami-laced flavor, the sauce requires minimal work and ingredients to come together.
35. Baked Brown Sugar Chicken Wings with Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce
Where does the dipping sauce get its unique earthiness and signature tang, you ask? We have goat cheese and sour cream to thank.
39. Game-Day Baked Chicken Wing Platter
Like charcuterie, only a million times better. Take your pick from Thai-inspired chile garlic, Buffalo, sesame hoisin and jalapeño tomatillo sauces.
