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!
2 Brown Sugar Spice Wings
In my family, I'm famous for my delicious chicken rub recipe. I want to share it with you! The brown sugar and spice are a perfect pairing. These wings are sure to be a crowd favorite.
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 Coriander Lime Wings
This is my take on jerk chicken wings. The lime juice adds a bright citrus tone to the Caribbean spices. Careful, they'll get eaten fast!
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.
