Web’s Best: Wings

Web’s Best: Wings


It’s Super Bowl time, which means break out the blue cheese dressing, celery, and a crap-ton of napkins. Nothing goes better with the big game than some cold beers and a generous helping of wings. If you don’t want to place an order and wait in line on Super Bowl Sunday to get some from whatever place you have around the block, consider making some of your own. Here are the best recipes on the web to create some awesome wings.


Grilled Honey BBQ Chicken Wings Recipe

These wings are good enough to brave the cold and fire up the grill for. Of course, you could just use a cast iron grill pan if you’ve got one to give them some nice lines of char. Plus, the sauce is about a billion times better than any jar or squeeze bottle most of your friends would pick up when covering some wings. (Recipe)


Peanut Butter & Jelly Wings

What appears to be an unassuming fried chicken wing, is, in fact, a piece of heavenly magic. These are PB&J wings. Before you discount them, just trust us, the jelly works and the peanut butter adds a unique flavor. Plus, you can tell your guests they are Peanut Butter & Jelly Wings and you’ll look like some awesome molecular gastronomist. (Recipe)


Honey Baked Pistachio Wings

This recipe is loaded with so many of our favorite things, it’s kinda ridiculous. Pistachios? Check. Sriracha? Check. Garlic, butter, ginger? Check, check, check. They’ve got a bit more texture than your average Hooters offering, and for that, we’re excited. (Recipe)


Korean Fried Chicken Wings

These crunchy and crisp wings with some tasty Korean BBQ sauce are a bit more involved than your standard pub fare, but are worth the work of gathering the ingredients. Like, really worth the work. You just gotta track down some Korean Chile Paste. (Recipe)


Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Wings

Adhering to the old adage that bacon makes everything better, the creator of these chicken wings decided to give them a delicious pork jacket. We don’t need to convince you these are delicious, you’re probably already on your way to the grocery store. (Recipe)


Coca-Cola Chicken Wings

Since you’ll be downing some beers during the game, might as well put that Coke to good use. These Coca-Cola Chicken Wings get soaked in some soda, soy, and sherry while cooking for a sugary sweet kick. (Recipe)


Anchor Bar Buffalo Wings

You can’t have a wings recipe list of any merit without an ode to the place that (*supposedly) started it all. This recipe is based off the classic recipe for the bright red wings served up at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY. Just break out the Frank’s RedHot and get ready for some classic deliciousness. (Recipe)


Chili Beer Chicken Wings

Any recipe that combines our two Super Bowl staples (wings & beer) is good in our book. This recipe uses Festina Peche from Dogfish Head which will impart far more flavor than a bottle of Bud if you’re game. Of course, you can play around with different beers to get some other flavors going with these wings. (Recipe)


Blackberry Chipotle Hot Wings

If you’re the kinda guy who serves sous-vide turkey with cranberry compote for Thanksgiving and likes to think outside the box to impress your guests, here’s your perfect wing recipe. The wings – which look like they just got back from a murder scene – are covered in a delicious blackberry reduction. Sure they’re a bit fancy for your standard Super Bowl party, but if you’re looking to show off, have at it. (Recipe)


Habanero Orange Wings

If you want your heat level at “11,” consider these Habanero Orange Wings. We’re not sure how hot the Trader Joe’s brand habanero sauce is that the recipe calls for, but we’ve had other brands, and they can leave scorch marks on your tongue. The touch of orange happens to give these guys a nice rounded out flavor as well. (Recipe)


Ferran Adria’s Chicken Wings with Mushrooms

If you want a good recipe, turn to a guy who happens to be a food genius. The mastermind behind the infamous El Bulli, Ferran  Adria won’t steer you wrong, even when it comes to something as simple as wings. Of course, with the Spanish chef, nothing is straightforward and plain; these wings get paired up with mushrooms and a healthy helping of garlic. (Recipe)
