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.
“Blown away”. Those were the first words that crossed my mind when I took my first bite of chicken wings (cooked using a Vortex) tossed in Meijer’s Sweet Chili wing sauce. With no artificial flavors, I found the sauce to be nothing but pure goodness. It has a nice heat level, not too much, not too little. A little sweetness. And the perfect thickness. Not too gloppy, but perfect for sticking to wings and your fingers. Better than many top shelf wing sauces and a whole lot cheaper. Anita’s favorite eat-out wings are the Thai’R Cracker wings from Quaker Steak and Lube. She said that the sweet chili sauce from Meijer is at least as good. And maybe a bit better. That’s saying a lot.
Make yourself a big batch of these grill master wings and you’ll quickly realize that it doesn’t take a complicated recipe or a lot of ingredients to make fantastic wings. Simply seasoned wings are cooked until perfectly tender and moist with crunchy skin. The wings are then tossed gently in a wonderful sauce that has a slight hint of Asian-inspired flavor with a kiss of vinegar. On the side a slightly kicked-up dipping sauce that makes you think of classic Buffalo wings until you get another slight hint of soy sauce. Delicious! You could use your favorite spice mixture instead of ‘just’ salt and pepper when marinading the wings before cooking. I rather like keeping them simple and letting the tossing and dipping sauces shine. Heck, wings just seasoned with salt and pepper, cooked and served are just great as they are.
Ok, time to fess up. If I was forced to choose my favorite wing sauce at Buffalo Wild Wings, spicy garlic would be it. The BW3 website says the sauce is ‘spicy and garlicky’ and that’s exactly what this copycat of the restaurant sauce is. Same great flavors, same great heat. Lick-your-fingers good. I so love this spicy garlic wing sauce. It’s still Buffalo-sauce like, but with a nice twist making it just different enough but still familiar. The sauce keeps for a bit, so I didn’t hesitate to double the recipe. This sauce is good on grilled chicken or pork wings too.
One of the things I love about being addicted to cooking and eating chicken wings is that 99 times out of 100, every new recipe I try is just absolutely fantastic. I dream about chicken wings. A lot. And these roasted red chile wings, well, they were crazy good and certainly dream-worthy. I love chile peppers for the pepper flavor. And although I also love spicy, my number one love is that great pepper flavor, and the roasted red chile jelly from Albukirky Seasonings brings that and then some without scary spiciness.The Albukirky Seasonings red chile BBQ rub (and also the green chile BBQ rub) has quickly become my go-to wing rub. It’s just perfect on wings (and other things, too, but I really, really enjoy it on wings). Combined with the red chile jelly (which I thinned just a bit) the roasted red chile wings made for a lunch that I won’t soon forget, but I will soon make again.
