The Ultimate Chicken Wings Buying Guide

You’ve gotta love chicken wings. They’re delicious no matter how mild or spicy you like. Here’s everything you need to make your perfect wing.

Don’t have time to make your own sauce? You need a trio pack of sauces. The flavors are buffalo, sweet chili and bourbon.

Because everyone goes to Hooters for the wings – and only the wings (yeah right! lol). Now there’s no reason to dine out because you can order Hooters Wing Sauce.

If you want to make your own sauce, you’ll need a hot sauce. And  this one is CRAZY hot. Seriously.

Panko crumbs make your chicken wings ultra crispy. Gotta love that!

You’ll never regret investing in a quality chef’s knife, especially when you cut your own chicken wings.

A good set of tongs is an absolute requirement when making chicken wings.

Don’t forget  to buy a large baking sheet for baking your wings.

Frying your wings? You’ll need a handy dandy candy thermometer. It’ll tell you when the oil is hot and ready.

Safety first. Make sure that chicken is cooked through with an instant read thermometer.

Grillers need a wing rack to make perfect wings. They’ll cook more evenly and it’ll help reduce the mess, making clean up easy peasy.

If you’re baking your wings, you need a rack as well to ensure proper browning on all sides of the wing.

It’s never too early to start thinking about summer. Buy a portable grill, you know so you can make wings at the beach, the park and at your alma mater.

Deep fry those babies like they do in restaurants. You need a fryer. It’s so much easier than using a pan and oil over the stove.

Here’s a solution if you have the urge for wings in the car or anywhere inconvenient. Avert a disaster by eating chicken wing jerky.

Announce your love for chicken wings with this spicy buffalo chicken wing T-shirt. For a more subtle version, but still fierce, wear this.

Start ’em young. Buy your favorite baby a chicken wing teether. Sophie the Giraffe can’t compete.

Amy had no clue how to cook until she became the food reporter for a daily newspaper in Minnesota. At 25, she even struggled with boxed mac and cheese. These days, Amy is a much better cook, thanks to interviewing cooks and chefs for more than 10 years. She even makes four cheese macaroni and cheese with bacon, no boxed mac in sight.
