Baked Chicken Wings

Rating: 4.5 stars 891
Easy, crispy, and delicious. I normally serve with a side of rice, chicken gravy, and a vegetable or salad.

Grill Master Chicken Wings

Rating: 5 stars 657
These wings are always a hit! I grill them up before a party and keep them hot in a low oven. I always use Frank's RedHot® sauce. It's got lots of flavor and isn't too spicy.

Air Fryer Balsamic-Glazed Chicken Wings

Rating: 5 stars 4
Put a big stack of napkins on the table because once you start eating these crispy, sticky, sweet glazed chicken wings, you won't want to stop. This can be an appetizer for four or main course for two.

Sweet Chili and Orange Marmalade Glazed Chicken Wings

Rating: 5 stars 10
It doesn't get much easier than these three-ingredient sticky sweet wings. A combination of orange marmalade and sweet chili sauce make for some of the most addictive wings you've ever had.

Air-Fried Korean Chicken Wings

Rating: 5 stars 18
These Korean-style air-fried wings are crispy, sticky and spicy. Cooked in an air fryer they are ready in less than 30 minutes. They are perfect as an appetizer or add some rice and veggies on the side and you have a balanced meal.

Instant Pot® Buffalo Wings

Rating: 4.5 stars 18
Buffalo wings made simple in an Instant Pot® and without the fry. The Instant Pot® cooks these to perfection. They hold together for easy handling but as soon as you sink your teeth into them, they are fall-off-the-bone tender. Serve with carrot sticks, celery, and ranch if desired.

Indian Masala Chicken Wings

Rating: 5 stars 5
Marinate chicken wings ahead of time in a simple homemade masala paste for an explosion of spicy Indian flavors. Serve with lemon wedges and steamed basmati rice.

Ram (Rosemary, Ancho, Molasses) Wings

Rating: 4.5 stars 7
Flavored with rosemary, ancho, and molasses, these chicken wings honor this year's Super Bowl® teams, one being the Los Angeles Rams and the other which shall not be named. You'll use the easiest of methods to produce the most crowd-pleasing, finger-messing 'sticky wings.' The technique simply involves soaking wings in a sweet, spicy marinade, baking them wet, and then tossing them with a finishing glaze.

Hickory Smoked Chicken Wings

Rating: 4 stars 3
Tender hickory-smoked chicken wings without the wait.

Caramelized Chicken Wings

Rating: 4.5 stars 302
Yummy chicken wings that are so easy to fix on the stove top or in an electric skillet.

Boneless Buffalo Wings

Rating: 5 stars 984
What a great way to have chicken. Had these boneless wings a while back at a pub and fell in love with the taste. A nice change from your regular chicken wings. Serve with blue cheese dressing for dipping.

Crispy Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings

Rating: 4.5 stars 314
The honey-sriracha glaze is quite delicious and incredibly simple, but merely an afterthought here. The real star of the show is the strange, but effective, technique of coating the wings with a baking powder-laced spice rub before baking. Through the magic of chemical reactions, the surface of the chicken becomes bone-dry, and eventually crisps up to something very similar to what would come out of a deep fryer.
