Super Bowl Menu Must-Haves: 5 Healthy Chicken Wing Recipes

Chicken wings are to the Super Bowl as bodybuilders are to the dumbbell rack. One can’t exist without the other! These healthy recipes are perfect for any football party!

What's a Super Bowl party without chicken wings? They go hand-in-hand with watching football and drinking a cold brew. However, those little fried friends can wreak havoc on your waistline, especially if they're an every-Sunday staple.

Instead of chomping on greasy, fried, fat-full nuggets, try these recipes. They've all been taste-tester approved and have even been touted as better than most wings you can buy in a store. Try these recipes and you'll get your protein, some flavor for you taste buds, and the chance to partake in football tradition. If you must imbibe, pair these with a Miller 55!

1 / Teriyaki Wings

These Asian-inspired wings are sticky with sweet and spicy flavor. Warning: you may need wet wipes for these ooey-gooey chicken treats!

3 / Honey Dijon Wings

Who doesn't love a little honey-mustard action? It's especially great on chicken wings! These are surprisingly moist and full of flavor. Use Dijon, stone ground, or course-grain mustard for some added depth of flavor.

  • 4 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
Directions
  1. Rinse and pat dry chicken, then trim off visible fat.

  5. Set broiler to high with the rack about 6 inches from the flame.
  6. Once chicken is done, remove from water and add to Ziploc bag.
  7. Shake until all wings are fully covered with marinade.

5 / Frank's Red Hot Wings

Make your own traditional hot wings with this recipe. Frank's offers many different flavor variations to its hot sauce, but I went for Franks Original—my personal favorite. It is neon orange and absolutely delicious.

  2. Place chicken in a large pot. Fill pot with cold water until chicken is covered by two inches.
  3. Bring water to a boil and boil for 10 minutes.

I have been using a Philips AirFryer to cook my wings for about 1 year now. Right now my two favorite recipes are dry rub curry mix and kung pao chicken wings. Both are amazing.

My gf bought me the Philips AirFryer for valentines 2012. I think it's about $150, but if you are serious about cooking chicken wings, I can not speak more highly about this thing. It's almost as awesome as when I first got my NUWave oven awhile back.

I grill instead of broiling and they taste awesome. Baked boneless wings are awesome too.

These look amazing, my only wonder is how in the world you came up with a 4 to 1 Protein to Fat ratio.

Chicken Wings uncooked are barely 2 to 1.

So, I am trying to eat healthier for the superbowl and am gonna try to attempt to make the teryaki wings as listed above. However, it doesn't state how much teriyaki marinade to use. Does anyone know the answer to the amount to use?!?!
