Crispy Oven-Baked Buffalo Wings
This healthier take on a classic Buffalo wings recipe ends up just as crispy as their deep-fried, buttery counterparts, but you won't be left with any guilt after overstuffing. All you have to do is toss the wings in a mixture of salt and baking soda, let them air-chill in the fridge overnight, and then bake.

Grilled Teriyaki Wings
Ditch the Buffalo wings recipe and serve up these finger-licking teriyaki chicken wings. Simply toss chicken wings on the grill (a grill pan will work just fine if you prefer to stay indoors or don’t have a grill), brush with teriyaki sauce, and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Then, watch them disappear in a flash.
