We're making wings for the Super Bowl this year, and so are you. Because a Super Bowl party without wings is like a birthday party without a cake: it still works, but it's not the same. Whether you prefer a blazing hot, tangy, or highbrow wing, one of these recipes will lead you to sweet, sweet victory (at least party-wise).
Thai Grilled Chicken Wings
The tangy dipping sauce is great with pretty much any grilled meat. Keep it on heavy rotation. Get the recipe.
Crab Fat-Caramel Wings
Don't worry--you won't need to buy any crabs to make these mind-altering wings. The crab flavor comes from a jarred condiment that's pretty easy to find at Asian markets; if not, use the shrimp version. Get the recipe.
BA's Best Buffalo Wings
Two key steps ensure extra-crisp wings: letting them sit at room temperature evens the cooking time, and the cornstarch dredge transforms into a crunchy shell when fried. If you like your wing sauce super spicy, increase the amount of cayenne. Get the recipe.
Grilled Chicken Wings with Vinegar and Chiles
These wings are hot, sweet, and tangy. Get the recipe.
Herbed Grilled Chicken Wings
The seductively high ratio of skin to meat is what makes wings taste good, and grilling takes full advantage of that. This herb marinade is bright and summery, and light enough to let the skin get nice and crisp. Watch the video here. Get the recipe.
