13 Super Bowl Chicken Wing Recipes That Give Buffalo And Mild A Much-Needed Timeout

It's been decided: It'll be the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks going head-to-head in Super Bowl XLIX, taking over your TV on Sunday, Feb. 1. So that means you can finally focus on what really matters — the Super Bowl wings you'll be chowing down on as the two teams battle it out. I have to admit, I mostly focus on a big ol' bucket of wings rather than the game itself.

And the great thing about chicken wings is that they come in so many different flavor varieties. Check out our winning team of recipes that'll have you craving more than just the regular ol' buffalo, BBQ, hot, and mild chicken wings during the game.
