Chicken wings for the big game

UPDATED February 1, 2021: What goes better with football than chicken wings? Whether you like your wings so spicy they make you sweat or the sweeter varieties, you’ll find the perfect recipe you and your guests will surely enjoy at your next watch party. Throw on your jersey, grab tons of napkins, and dig in.

1. Buffalo chicken wings

The Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York is renowned as the birthplace of the Buffalo wing. The recipe for authentic Buffalo wings comes down to a few must-haves: cayenne pepper hot sauce, butter and deep fried chicken wings. Our Buffalo hicken wings include those three ingredients along with a dash of garlic powder. This classic game-day dish is sure to be the delicious, albeit messy, star of your next watch party.

2. Slow cooker honey sriracha chicken wings

We love the idea of making chicken wings in the slow cooker. Not only is there minimal clean up, you can attend to your guests while the wings cook instead of standing over the stove or deep fryer. These slow cooker honey sriracha chicken wings are great, especially for those who find spicy Buffalo wings too hot or intense. They have a mild-to-medium, sweet taste with a blend honey, soy, sesame and ginger. You can eat your fair share without burning your mouth, and you don’t even need a separate dipping sauce–though they are good with the traditional blue cheese side.

3. Spicy grilled chicken wings

Brave the great outdoors for these spicy grilled chicken wings. Combining hot sauce, poultry seasoning, black pepper and fresh garlic adds the perfect amount of heat to these wings. Serve them alongside your favorite blue cheese dressing and celery. You could also use one of our indoor grills for this recipe – just disregard the wood chip instructions on the recipe.

4. Slow cooker sticky jalapeño hot wings

These slow cooker sticky jalapeño hot wings are the perfect wings for those who prefer a spicier variety. The fresh jalapeño and dry mustard in the wing sauce add an extra kick. The best part? The sauce you baste these wings in can also act as a dipping sauce, saving you time in the kitchen and freeing up more time to concentrate on the big game.
