Game-Changing Chicken Wing Recipes

Hoisin-and-Honey Chicken Wings
Saucy or spicy, sweet or tangy, paired with blue cheese or without -- here's a wing recipe for every taste.

Buffalo Wings

Hello, spice. Hello, blue cheese dip. Hello, wing perfection.

Hot and Spicy Wings

Heat scaredy-cats, be warned. Two ounces of hot pepper sauce leaves a lip-tingling heat after a bite of these chicken wings. Relief, however, is offered in the form of a sour cream dipping sauce.

Five-Spice Chicken Wings

Purchased five-spice powder is the secret ingredient to these incredibly easy slow cooker chicken wings. What's in the powder? Cloves, cinnamon, fennel seed, star anise, and Szechuan peppercorns.

Spicy Peking Wings

This is a great way to use up that bottle of plum sauce you tried in a past Chinese dinner recipe. Fresh ginger and Asian chili-garlic sauce also add to the layered flavors here.

Sweet & Spicy Party Wings

The "sweet" of the name is honey; the "spicy" is green hot pepper sauce and jalapeno peppers. Combined, they create an oven-baked wing that most party guests can agree on.

Chinese Coca-Cola Wings

Fizzy soda packs the sweetness in these chicken wings, which also feature salty soy sauce. The finish? Toasted sesame seeds.

Bangkok Chili Wings

You'll need a blender or food processor for this recipe (to puree a mango), but it's worth every extra dirty dish. These tropical, tangy chicken wings also benefit from coconut milk.

Red Curry Chicken Wings

More than 1,000 of our readers have shared this recipe, and here's why: Red curry paste brings enough spice for these wings to stand out at a buffet, but even young guests can enjoy a bite without bailing on the heat.

Thai Chicken Wings with Peanut Sauce

Perfect for transporting! These amazing sweet wings are made in a slow cooker so you can travel with them and still ensure they're hot.

Shanghai Market Wings

Lots of Asian inspiration here: Chinese five-spice powder, ginger, soy sauce, and hoisin sauce make these wings familiar to anyone who loves ordering Hoisin Chicken at a Chinese restaurant.

Pineapple Teriyaki Wings

Pineapple juice and soy sauce just go together. Mix them with honey, ginger, garlic, and sake for a tangy, easy-to-love chicken wing.

Tamarind-and-Orange-Glazed Wings

Pick up tamarind paste in the Indian or Asian specialty section of your grocery store. It's worth it: It tastes like a mash-up of dates, apricots, and lemons. 

Spicy Chicken with Cucumber Yogurt Sauce

Did you know that you can grill chicken wings? You save on fat by not frying, and you still get crisp, flavorful skin. These wings also feature a lighter yogurt dipping sauce.

Tandoori Chicken Wings

We adore the spice combination in these Indian-style wings. Don't skimp on the marinating time; these chicken wings are best at full potency.

Kenny's Wings of Fire

There are a few teaspoons of a handful of spices in this chicken wing recipe, but you likely have most on hand already. That heat, though? Well, it comes from three kinds of hot sauce, plus liquid from a jar of jalapenos. The weak-hearted need not apply.

Hoisin-and-Honey Chicken Wings
