Best Game-Day Chicken Wing Recipes

Best Game-Day Chicken Wing Recipes

As more and more sports fans find themselves in the throws of Super Bowl season, the conversation continually turns to what recipes should be “on the table” for the big game. So, since a platter of chicken wings seems to always be welcome around the television, this list of “Chicken Wing Recipes for Game Day (or Any Day)” from the editors of Epicurious, is just what you need to prepare the ultimate game-day snack.

It should be noted that the following is just an excerpt of the full list of 31 recipes for wings of all types, but the recipes highlighted below promise to underline the essential flavors of well-prepared chicken wings, ranging from smoky and sweet to spicy and tangy.

Crispy Baked Chicken Wings

If you love the taste of crispy wings but hate the production, dirty dishes, and splashing oils that come along with frying them, then this recipe for baked wings is perfect for you. These delicious wings that can be dressed with buffalo sauce or a ginger-soy glaze stand to prove that wings can yield a crispy skin by being baked in the oven. This recipe proves that you can forget the mess and constant maintenance that comes with frying by baking your wings in a 400°F oven atop wire racks placed on baking sheets for 45-50 minutes.

Sesame Chicken Drumettes

While these baked, glossy drumettes are the perfect dish for game day, this recipe is too good to keep locked away until playoff season each year. These drumettes, which get their immense flavor profile from marinating overnight in the refrigerator, make for a great year-round appetizer or dinner entree if they’re served alongside steamed rice and broccoli. This is also because of the flavor-rich glaze that’s made with minced, peeled fresh ginger, soy sauce, cooking sherry, honey, and toasted sesame oil. Try out this delicious one-pot recipe and enjoy the other-worldly flavors.

3-Ingredient Garlic-Herb Grilled Chicken Wing Recipe

Sometimes you have days and weeks to prepare the pre-game appetizer, but for those times in which you’re behind and in need of a marinade that is easy to whip up in a hurry, then these herb-filled grilled chicken wings are the perfect solution to any time-sensitive problem. Though suspiciously simple when it comes to ingredients, this herb-rich recipe is anything but simplistic when it comes to a delicious texture and flavor of garlic that just can’t be beaten. Grilled over medium heat, these wings that can be marinated overnight for maximum flavor are benefited by garlic partnering with the herbal trinity of oregano, rosemary, and thyme to provide a blackened exterior that’s sure to make your mouth water.

3-Ingredient Gochujang Grilled Chicken Wings with Scallion

While this specific chicken wing recipe isn’t quite as crispy as traditional Korean fried chicken, it’s benefited by the inclusion of the uniquely sweet and savory flavor of gochujang, the red chili paste condiment that is consistently popular in Korean cooking. This dish makes great use of a simple recipe that has you toss your wings in the sweet and softly spicy flavor of gochujang along with sliced scallion for a flavorful final product that’s as pleasant to look at as it is to taste.

Boneless Buffalo Chicken “Wings”

Sometimes the best dishes are in disguise, and that’s certainly the case for these delicious boneless buffalo chicken “wings” that are really dressed up chicken breast strips. These strips are fried and sauced pieces of chicken breast with all of the spicy flavor associated with traditional buffalo wings, but they’re without the hassle that comes along with bones. Pair these delicious strips with some tangy blue cheese dip, celery sticks, and baby carrots, and you might find yourself opting for this meal again instead of bone-in wings.
