5 Flavors of Chicken Wings You Need to Try
Chicken wings are one of the most popular dishes across the country. They’re served as appetizers, as main courses, and as side dishes. There are entire restaurants dedicated to serving only chicken wings, and many popular programs encourage experimenting and pushing boundaries (like Hot Ones, where celebrities are interviewed while eating hot wings). Still, for many, simple wings are the most successful. If you aren’t a wing connoisseur, you might not know what flavors are among the best. Check out this blog of 5 flavors of chicken wings you need to try, and you might very well have a new favorite!
Parmesan garlic wings are popular choices at a lot of wing restaurants because of the unique flavor blend. The wings have a hefty amount of butter, a generous serving of grated parmesan cheese, and chunks of fresh garlic. There’s usually a bit of parsley added for flavor and color, too. These wings are great choices for those who prioritize taste over heat!
Another style of wings for those wing-eaters who don’t want to burn their tongues with hot sauce. Honey barbecue is a mild style; the honey lets the wings be as sweet as possible while not being too overpowering, and adding sugar helps maintain the flavor. If you make them yourself, you could always add a nice amount of cayenne pepper to increase the spice without sacrificing taste.
Not all wings have to be hot, as we’ve seen so far with this list. Lemon pepper wings are sweet and sticky; the black pepper gives them all the kick you could want. It’s a simple task: bake the wings, baste them with the sauce, and feast!
In the world of hot wings, mango habanero wings are perhaps present at the most restaurants. This style of wing is great for those who enjoy the kick of spice but also the sweetness of other flavors. Mango, honey, and sugar give the sauce sweet overtones, while the habanero peppers can make your tongue erupt. Whether you like your wings smooth and buttery or crispy and crunchy, mango habanero style can get it done.
And of course, if you find yourself overwhelmed by the heat, you should prepare a side of sliced celery stalks and ranch dressing. They can help counteract the capsaicin and cool your mouth down.
For the true lovers of heat, ghost pepper wings are a must-try. The ghost pepper formerly held the title of the hottest pepper in the world, so you know it packs a punch. You could incorporate ghost pepper in one of two ways – simply buy a ghost pepper sauce, or actually cut up the peppers yourself and add them to a sauce. Make sure you wear gloves regardless, though!
