I love any restaurant, chain or not, that serves chicken wings. I have my favorites for sure, and Buffalo Wild Wings is one of them. BW3s Parmesan garlic wing sauce is to die for. It’s creamy, a little nutty thanks to the Parmesan cheese, and definitely packed with garlic. This copycat of the chain sauce is spot-on crazy good. I absolutely could not stop eating it. So much so that I made wings covered in the Parmesan garlic sauce two days in a row. Is that wrong?
I say without hesitation that you should double the amount of sauce. It’s not so much that you need to drown the wings in it, no. It’s because it’s good on sandwiches and subs too. Crazy garlicky good.
This right here is yet another example of why you should not poo-poo generic wing sauces. I absolutely love all of the Meijer wing sauces. Meijer’s Medium Buffalo wing sauce is lightly spicy, has that great Buffalo wing flavor, and has the perfect consistency. And consistency is important. Too many less-expensive sauces are watery. You end up with 10 times as much sauce on your plate as you do on your wings. That’s not why you made wings. You want them covered in sauce, not swimming in sauce soup. Here in Indy at least, Meijer’s wing sauces are all under $3 for a 12 ounce bottle. That’s a really good price, and I often find them on sale for $2.80 or even less. That’s back-up-the-truck and load-up-on-wing sauce time for me. You can’t beat the price or the flavor. And they’re all-natural too boot!
I’ve been a huge fan of Cajun Power garlic sauce for years. It is one of the star components of Fat Johnny’s Kaw-Cajun Comeback sauce, a remoulade sauce that is the bomb on just about anything you can think of. I seriously don’t know why I waited so long to use it as both a chicken wing marinade and sauce. I loved these wings. Seasoned perfectly. A little garlicky. Nice and rich and super yummy. You can’t put enough Cajun Power garlic sauce on your cooked wings. I’ve tried and it’s not possible. It’s also great for dipping wings instead of your usual cooling dips like blue cheese or ranch dressing.
Sweet heat. And then some. I should’ve known I’d love these Dragon Fire wings so much that I would want more. Such a simple sauce but oh so addicting. Don’t let the sweetness of that first bite fool you. There’s heat coming and it’s coming fast. No question about it, Dragon Fire is easily one of my favorite wings of all time. I used apricot preserves to make the Dragon Fire sauce. Peach would also work just fine. You can also substitute for the Sriracha sauce. Any good hot sauce or even Buffalo wing sauce would work just as well. You’ll want something to cool you off a bit, so try dipping your wings in my Wild Wings dipping sauce.
Yowsa. Somebody needs to open a gallery of chicken wing pictures. A picture of these Detroit hot honey wings would be right by the entrance. Under heavy guard. I loved them more than I ever thought I would. They’re almost like your standard Buffalo wings with one very obvious addition: sweet honey. Oh, and cayenne. Sweet heat, exactly what you’re searching for in a great wing. You can add more cayenne pepper to the wings as they marinade if you like, but I leaned towards more sweet than heat when I made Detroit hot honey wings. The sauce is so great you could eat it by itself. I think it might also make for a great ham glaze too. And it would also make for a great sauce over roasted or grilled chicken.
I’ve come across recipes for Ramen-crusted chicken wings on the internet, but never really got into the idea. But I did get into the idea of dusting some mighty fine cooked wings with Ramen seasoning and serving them with an out-of-this-world peanut dipping sauce. And I didn’t leave off the Ramen noodles, nope! A quick fry in a pan with a little oil, and boom! Crunchy Ramen wing topping! If you really love Ramen seasoning don’t be afraid to double the amount of seasoning used. I always have Ramen seasoning on hand because I like to crunch up the noodles and fry them for topping salads or in my Oriental Ramen broccoli cole slaw.
I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.
Buffalo wings, blue cheese, and celery. Very traditional and very good and usually, each component is served separately. But why not cut to the chase and combine all of those great flavors into one bite? Buffalo supreme wings do exactly that. Yeah, they’re messy to eat, but that’s part of the fun. I really enjoyed chowing down on Buffalo supreme wings. They didn’t last long at all, that’s for sure. It was bordering on embarrassing, but I couldn’t help myself. That happens with me and wings a lot.
The best wings pack flavor into every bite, all the way through. These bandit wings have flavor and then some. They are marinated overnight, picking up a light soy sauce flavor along with a hint of cumin and chili powder. Sort of southwestern meets Asian.
Bandit wings definitely to not require a sauce. You don’t want to hide the fantastic flavors. I did have a little blue cheese dressing on the side for dipping but I used it sparingly. The original recipe called for garnishing the cooked wings with black sesame seeds. Apparently they’re as rare as a unicorn here so I went with plain ole ‘normal’ sesame seeds. You get that bit of sesame seed flavor either way.
