8 Finger-Licking-Good Wing Recipes for Super Bowl Sunday
One of the most popular game-days eats on Super Bowl Sunday is sticky, finger-licking-good chicken wings. According to the National Chicken Council, a trade association for companies that make chicken products, Americans are expected to eat 1.3 billion wings in the 48 hours surrounding Sunday’s big football game. Seems like a lot of chicken wings, right? Well, that's because it is, amounting to roughly four wings per person. If wings are on your agenda—and let’s be real, no Super Bowl spread is complete without some variety on the menu—you may be wondering what kind to make. Classic Buffalo? Korean fried? Slathered in barbecue sauce? You came to the right place. Browse the following eight recipes and you’re sure to find the most crowd-pleasing chicken wings ever.
A quick and easy homemade sauce (made by combining onion, habanero chili, cherry preserves, and fresh lime juice) is what seasons these barbecued wings. If it’s too cold in your neck of the woods to get outside and grill, cook the smokin’ sweet chicken wings under the broiler. You’ll get that same charred flavor.
To quickly cook these Thai chicken wings on the grill, slide several thighs and drumettes onto one skewer. You’ll be able to flip six to eight chicken pieces at a time. Don’t skip the tangy chili-lime fish sauce with sesame seeds. It makes these wings wildly scrumptious!
Making classic buffalo wings is actually quite easy. The sauce is a simple mixture of your favorite Southern-style hot sauce (I like Frank’s) and melted butter. After the wings are fried to crisp perfection, they are dunked in the hot butter sauce bath. Serve with the traditional accoutrements: celery sticks and blue cheese dressing.
One way to truly impress your guests? Serve a massive plate of buttermilk fried chicken wings. How often does one have homemade fried chicken wings? Not very often, so it’s a crowd-pleasing treat that’s definitely worth it for the wow factor. A piping-hot platter of macaroni and cheese is the ideal accompaniment.
Below, you’ll find items that are necessary for cooking and serving chicken wings.
