What’s your New Year’s Resolution? Is it training yourself to become the “Wing Leader of KC?” All kidding aside, when it comes to finger foods, does it get much better than some chicken wings fresh off the grill? From potlucks to tailgates, their tough to beat in the battle of appetizers. With the Chiefs officially in the playoffs, it’s time to get some finger-licking good recipes on the menu to host the best tailgate. Trust us, you’ll find yourself re-using these recipes for future occasions as well! Here’s a few classics to get you started: (A little piece of advice: Wings are sure to go fast, so don’t hesitate to cook plenty!)
If you’re tailgating outside during the cold Kansas City winters, you’ll need some comfort food to keep you warm. These wings aren’t crazy hot, but they should be spicy enough to grab your attention.
Not everyone is going to be game for the spicy stuff. To accommodate these individuals, it’s tough to go wrong with a little Parmesan garlic. It’s definitely a crowdpleaser thanks to it’s subtle taste and a personal favorite of mine!
For a real Kansas City tailgate, wings are likely going to be one of a handful of other appetizers. In this case, it’s important to get something you can prep quickly and then toss on the grill. These “Simple Sideline Wings” should do the trick. Not too much ingredients to use, nor is the prep time overwhelming. Enjoy!
If chicken wings are going to be apart of your party, there has to be a spot for some buffalo wings. These “Boomin’ Buffalo Wings” are sure to be a hit with the unique taste created from the beer and red pepper mixed with the wings in the early stages.
