If your Super Bowl traditions involve time in the kitchen, here are three chicken wing recipes to try on Sunday. This is also a good way to keep things lighter but still sort of indulgent on game day, as homemade grub tends to be healthier even if you load up dark meat and creamy dressings.

This is my go-to wing recipe. It's simple, it's relatively healthy, and it's very delicious. We're not depriving ourselves of any crispy wing goodness here. It's there, thanks to the olive oil and the hot oven. Of course, you can serve it with any creamy dressing you want, but I love the freshness of this ranch recipe. Also, it has come in handy in a pinch when I don't have a bottle already in my fridge.

Shaked then Baked Chicken Wings

Ingredients

  • 20 chicken wings
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 4 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • Ranch Dressing for serving, recipe follows

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place chicken wings in a bowl. Pat dry, then drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. In a large, resealable bag, add garlic, cayenne pepper, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper; seal and shake to combine. Add the chicken wings; reseal and shake to coat. Arrange the chicken wings on a baking sheet. (You might need more than one sheet.) Drizzle a bit more olive on top before placing them in the oven.
  3. Cook the wings in the preheated oven 45 minutes to hour, or until cooked through. If you want to get them a bit crispier, cook for a little less time and then broil for the last 5 or so minutes, keeping a close eye on them to make sure they don't burn.

I can never resist the perfect pairing of sweet honey and hot sriracha, a sauce made from chili peppers that is available in most grocery stores. Tip: Make extra glaze that doesn't get used on the raw wings, for dunking after the chicken is cooked.

Honey Sriracha Glazed Wings

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, or other neutral oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish
  • For the honey Sriracha glaze:
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup Sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Juice of 1 lime

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. To make the glaze, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Stir in honey, Sriracha, soy sauce and lime juice. Bring to a boil; simmer until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, combine wings, butter, vegetable oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Place wings onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, using metal tongs to turn at halftime. Brush wings with Sriracha glaze and broil for 3 to 4 minutes, or until crisp and crusted.
  5. Serve immediately, garnished with cilantro and sesame seeds, if desired.

Let the slow cooker do the work for you in this recipe, which uses peanut butter to create a creamy sauce.
