Super Bowl: Wings, Wings and more Wings

The Super Bowl is a time where we get to watch two of the greatest teams battle it out. The Super Bowl party has become a hallowed tradition, but when it comes to food, we need quick and easy recipes. One of the favored foods is wings because really what can be more manly than ripping meat off the bone as we watch 300 pound behemoths obliterate each other. It gives me goose bumps. Here are some great recipe for wing sauces that will make your mouth water.

Hot Buffalo Wings

These wings are hot and spicy with a hint of buttery goodness that will get the blood pumping. Cook the wings beforehand. All you need is 2/3 cup of hot sauce, ½ cup of cold unsalted butter, ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon of garlic power. Put all the ingredients in a pan and set over medium heat until it starts to boil, making sure to stir regularly. Remove from the stove, let it cool down for a little bit and then cover the wings. The best way is to transfer to a plastic bag, put in the wings and shake.

Teriyaki Garlic Wings

If you’re looking for a little Asian flare, then teriyaki wings are awesome. You’ll need two cloves of minced garlic, ½ cup of honey, 2 teaspoons of Sriracha sauce, ½ cup of teriyaki marinade, about 4 pounds of chicken wings and 1 ½ cups of Teriyaki glaze.

Place the garlic, honey, Sriracha and marinade in a bowl and mix. Pour it over the wings and place everything in a container and let sit in the refrigerator for at least four hours, but preferably overnight. Preheat the oven to about 400 degrees and place the wings on a nonstick baking sheet and cook for about 50 minutes, making sure to turn them about 25 minutes in. When done, brush with the glaze and you’re done.

Make Something Up

The great thing about wings is the sauce is king. There are many different types of marinades and sauces out there to try or even make up your own. Being a great chef means going with your gut and taking chances, so why not experiment and give it a try. A long time ago, some guy thought putting hot sauce on wings and the buffalo wing was born.
