1. Baked Chicken Wings

A healthy alternative to fried wings, these are true classics. They have crunchy skins and are covered in a tangy buffalo sauce that gives them a delightful kick.

With fewer than 10 ingredients and a total cook time of under an hour, even beginner chefs can make them!

If buffalo sauce isn’t your thing, you can adjust the recipe slightly and make BBQ, honey BBQ, honey garlic, or ranch wings instead.

Whichever you choose, they’re sure to be a hit.

Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings

2. Garlic Parmesan Wings

Wingstop knows wings, and if you want to wow your friends and family with your culinary skills, why not use a recipe from the king of wings?

Covered in butter, garlic, and parmesan cheese, these savory, crispy wings will have the whole family drooling before they ever hit the table.

Luckily, they only take about 30 minutes to cook, so you won’t have long to wait. If you’re looking for something full of spice and flavor, this is the recipe for you.

3. Honey Garlic Chicken Wings

These are a must-try for those of you who want to show off your culinary skills. The chicken’s more of an afterthought with these wings.

The gorgeous glaze made from butter, onions, dark brown sugar, soy sauce, honey, and ground mustard is what’ll have people talking. 

4. Fried Chicken Wings

Fried chicken is a southern staple, and these chicken wings bring a whole lot of southern style to the table.

All you’ll need for them are a few common ingredients – eggs, milk, flour, and a few other things.

In just a couple of hours, you’ll be enjoying some southern hospitality!

5. Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings

If you’re in the mood for something spicy, these simple-to-make salt and pepper wings are just the thing.

They’re the perfect mixture of heat, flavor, and crispness. All you’ll need to make them is salt, pepper, garlic, green onions, and some sesame oil.

If you want to add a little extra bite, throw in some chili pepper flakes! 

Buffalo Chicken Wings

6. Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Wings

It doesn’t get much simpler than these traditional buffalo wings.

You’ll get all the great flavor of everyone’s favorite wings combined with the convenience of them practically cooking themselves in the Crockpot. It’s a total win-win. 

7. Red Chimichurri Chicken Wings

These wings combine plenty of heat with plenty of fresh herbs for a flavor combination that’s out of this world – or at least out of this country!

You’ll likely have to make a trip to the store for some of these ingredients, but if you want something authentically ethnic that takes less than an hour to cook, these wings have you covered.

8. Vietnamese Chicken Wings

These five-ingredient wings can be cooked in about half an hour and taste amazing with a tall glass of champagne.

These Vietnamese wings combine sweet soy and Worcestershire sauces with sambal oelek chili paste and some diced cilantro for a sweet, sticky dish you won’t soon forget.

9. Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup

If you’re in the mood for the zest of buffalo wings but don’t actually want the wings themselves, this tangy soup is the perfect compromise.

Best of all, you can throw it in a slow cooker and leave it to cook itself. 

10. Thai Chicken Wings

Combine your love of Thai food and game day treats with these spicy wings baked conveniently in the oven.

It’s hard to pinpoint what I love most about these wings – the caramelized peanut sauce, the crunchy sesame seeds on top, or the juicy chicken underneath both.

11. Grilled Chicken Wings

These grilled chicken wings make a healthy snack the whole family will enjoy.

The wings are rubbed in a myriad of flavorful spices, and the sauce can be tailored to suit your taste with horseradish, hot sauce, capers, or sweet onion. 

12. Nashville Hot Chicken Wings

Where can you find celery salt, cayenne pepper, onion powder, hot sauce, and sweet paprika all in the same place?

In these crispy, spicy Nashville hot chicken wings. If you love fried chicken and can handle the heat, these are the wings for you. 

13. Maple Glazed Chicken Wings

If you’re looking for an American treat with an Asian flair, these wings are just the thing.

Somehow, they manage to combine heat, spicy, sweet, smoky, and salty all into one delicious appetizer. The glaze is also beautiful to behold.

14. Air Fryer Chicken Wings

This recipe will show you how to make the crunchiest, crispiest wings possible using nothing but an air fryer!

You can tweak the wings to whatever flavor you like best, and whatever that is, you’ll appreciate the crunch underneath.

15. Mexican Chicken Wings

These wings have a lot going on, and that’s what makes them so appetizing.

They combine all the best authentic Mexican fare, including lime, chipotle powder, crema fresca, paprika, cilantro, and more.

Cook them for about 40 minutes, and sprinkle some cotija cheese over the top. Delicioso!

16. Pineapple Baked Chicken Wings

Caribbean food is some of the best food there is, and they know their stuff when it comes to chicken wings.

These baked wings are almost too lovely to eat. The glaze combines pineapples, BBQ sauce, molasses, and ginger for a flavor that is 100% Caribbean.

17. Soy Garlic Ginger Chicken Wings

The ginger, garlic, soy, and honey glaze on these wings is as gorgeous as it is yummy, and it’s definitely yummy.

The skin is crispy, and the glaze is savory and slightly sweet. These are sticky and messy, but trust me when I tell you that no one will mind.

18. Orange Chicken Wings

If your favorite thing to order from your local Chinese restaurant is orange chicken, you’ll love these wings.

Baked in the oven and covered in a delightful homemade orange sauce, you can indulge in these healthy, low-calorie wings guilt-free. 

19. Coca-Cola Chicken Wings

Ah! The joys of cooking with Coke! The thick sauce on these wings is entirely thanks to the can of Coca-Cola classic used to make it.

It leaves the wings with a perfect blend of smoke, spice, salt, and sweetness.

Garnish them with some diced green onions, and you’ll have a one-of-a-kind appetizer that’ll totally win over the room. 

20. Baked Ranch Chicken Wings

If you have a picky family with various dietary needs, these crispy wings are the perfect treat.

Paleo-friendly, dairy-free, Whole30-compliant, and relatively low-calorie, these wings are crowd pleasers for just about anyone.

The homemade ranch seasoning combines only the best herbs and spices – dill, garlic, onion powder, chives, and more – and gives the wings a unique taste that’s 100% unforgettable.
