Now that the hustle and bustle of the holidays are over, we can move on to New Years. One of my favorite New Years Eve snacks is crispy chicken wings!

With an infinite amount of ways to make them, wings are such a versatile appetizer that everyone loves. And generally speaking, they are pretty easy to make at home.

Not only are wings great for New Years, but they’re perfect for any day really (especially Super Bowl Sunday!) Nothing better than buffalo chicken wings with crispy skin served at a Super Bowl party.

Plain wings are also great options. Party wings served with a few favorite sauces is one of my favorite finger foods to serve at a party. Whether deep frying, made in the slow cooker or baked in a preheated oven, juicy chicken wings with great flavor are perfect for football season.

If you are a fan of chicken wings, these recipes are for you!
