Chicken wings are already a favorite in sports bars; why not make them a favorite Super Bowl tradition in your own home? Buffalo wings are by far the most popular, but you can experiment with other flavors as well; alternative flavors include sweet and sour, barbecue, lemon dijon, and honey lime. Wings are usually fried, but you can bake or broil yours instead if you'd like. To avoid unnecessary stress, don't scramble to finish cooking your wings just in time for the party to begin. Make them ahead of time and refrigerate them until your guests have arrived; then you can reheat the chicken so it's perfect to eat. Remember that wings are meant to be dipped; serve your chicken wings with any of a variety of dips, including ranch dressing, barbecue sauce, and mustard. Be sure to keep the flavor of your wings in mind when selecting a dip.
