Chicken wings are a crowd favorite. The wing parts are just as easy to pick up like a chicken leg but it's not as big to hold. Plus, there are two parts to the chicken wing to please both the dark meat lovers and the white meat fans. 

If you love chicken wings, you need to know a recipe for crispy chicken wings and be armed with the tips to make perfectly crispy fried chicken first. You can use the Korean fried chicken technique of cooking the chicken twice! Once you have mastered the art of the crispy fried chicken, fried chicken wings are easy!    

There are many chicken wing flavors you can play around with in your kitchen. If you're into chicken wings and all the ways you can make these even more delicious and exciting to eat, here are chicken wing sauce recipes to try:

1 Salted Egg Yolk Wing Sauce Recipe   

The salted egg trend is long gone but the flavors are undeniably good. It's seriously delicious. You need to use only the salted egg yolks for this kind of recipe, so you may need more than you think. The trick here is to remember to toss it well so each wing is coated thoroughly with the salted egg sauce. You can even do away with the bones and use chicken tenders for a truly work-free eating experience.

2 Japanese Glaze Wing Sauce Recipe 

This recipe uses any part of chicken but who says you can't use the glaze to coat just chicken wings! This Japanese-style glaze is similar to the Korean style fried chicken but with a big difference in ingredients: mirin and sake. Mirin is a rice wine mainly used for cooking while sake is also a rice wine that is made for drinking as well as cooking. Mirin is commonly sweeter and contains less alcohol than sake.

3 Adobo Wing Sauce Recipe  

Adobo and chicken is the usual combination but have you ever thought about cooking it as fried chicken then tossing it in adobo sauce? This is exactly what these three recipes do. You get the delicious flavors of adobo-the garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, peppercorns, and bay-in the sauce. You also get the crispy chicken skin of fried chicken, too.

Want another take on the adobo wings? Spice it up with chopped siling labuyo or bird's eye chili for a hot and spicy version. You can also marinate it like you normally would fried chicken but instead of cooking it in the sauce, drain it, dredge it in flour, and fry it like fried chicken.

4 Peri-Peri Wing Sauce Recipe 

This awesome sauce is made from a simple mixture of chilies, garlic, paprika, lemon juice, and salt. It's made even more aromatic and addictive with a splash of whiskey for everyone who loves their food to be extra. The whiskey gives this sauce a smokiness that's subtle but with a slight bite. It's spicy, tangy, and ultimately, delicious.

5 Sticky BBQ-Honey Wing Sauce Recipe 

Sure, you can just toss chicken wings into a vat of delicious barbecue sauce and have barbecue wings. However, if you want the irresistible sticky quality that makes barbecue wing finger-licking delicious, you will want to exert a little effort and toss in some honey and brown sugar to the mix. Bake these until the tweaked barbecue sauce has reduced and become sticky, just like you wanted.

6 Buffalo Wing Sauce Recipe  

When it comes to chicken wings, classic sauces include the buffalo wing sauce. At its essence, buffalo wing sauce is hot sauce with melted butter. How can you say "no" to that mix? Sometimes, the hot sauce isn't enough and a pinch or more of ground red pepper or cayenne red pepper is also added. The hot sauce is the main ingredient that delivers the first hit of heat while the cayenne leaves your tongue tingling. 

Just don't forget the blue cheese dip! This easy wing sauce mix is what will make your movie marathons even more exciting but the blue cheese dip will elevate your wing eating experience to addictive status.

7 Korean Soy-Garlic Wing Sauce Recipe  

The spicy, soy-garlic glaze of this Korean fried chicken is what will make you lick your fingers clean but we think the crispness of these wings is what makes it so good! These are double fried. Double fried means exactly that: it's fried twice. The main purpose of this is twofold: one, it ensures that the chicken is cooked through without over-browning or even burning the outside. 

You can toss these in the classic spicy soy-garlic sauce, or you can try the sauce of this dakgangjeong or Korean sweet and sour chicken recipe, too. Want it sweet? This Korean-style honey butter chicken is also super delicious!

8 Garlic Parmesan Wing Sauce Recipe  

You can definitely toss chicken wings in a mix of melted butter, garlic, and grated Parmesan cheese for that classic coating. However, why stop there when you can have those wing flavors stuffed inside the chicken itself, too?
