No matter who you’re cheering on, no football feast is complete without the quintessential party time favorite, chicken wings! From beer-brined to classic buffalo, and a few inventive ones in between, we’ve rounded up eight winning wing recipes, and one bag of packaged wings from a partner, so you’re always game-day ready.
These sweet and sticky wings from Spend with Pennies are super hands-off and baked in the oven until crispy. The homemade sauce is sweet, spicy, and garlicky all at the same time, leaving you licking your fingers!
Pull out the grill for these wings that elicit the taste of Nashville hot chicken. Grill them for an optimal char, brush with hot honey, then serve with a buttermilk dip and crunchy pickles.
These double-fried wings from Fine Cooking are doubly good! First, you fry the wings before popping them in the oven for an extra crisp. Then you can either top them with miso sauce or serve them with the sauce on the side.
If you like chicken wings, you’ll love this version from Rosella at the Rand in San Antonio. Their recipe is extra juicy thanks to a honey-sweetened brine, and though these wings require some extra active time, they’re well worth the effort.
This recipe from Andrew Zimmernwas inspired by his first trip to Malaysia, where he spent every free second sampling street food. As a bonus, you only need one pot (and some napkins) for these sticky, cinnamon- and anise-spiced wings.
When in doubt, always stick with the classics, like this recipe for buffalo wings from Delish. This version, which relies on a mix of honey, butter, and Frank’s Red Hot, makes enough to feed four, but can be doubled as needed—just don’t forget the ranch for dunking!
Bring on the beer and let’s brine! Brining infuses both flavor and moisture into the meat, and this quick-brine of salt, beer, and brown sugar from Betty Crocker has quickly become one of our household favorites.
Looking for a healthy(ish) version of the game day classic? These lemon pepper wings from Creme de la Crumb bake in the oven with a bit of olive oil, then get brushed in a mix of lemon, black pepper, and honey butter before servings.
