Around the World in 15 Chicken Wings Recipes

Around the World in 15 Chicken Wings Recipes

Chicken wings. Once just the annoying little brother of the chicken breast. The chicken wing is now an institution in and of itself. Whole restaurants are now devoted to the making of chicken wings. They are staple food items at Super Bowl and New Year’s Eve parties everywhere. While the theory is that the Buffalo wing started at a bar in Buffalo, New York, chicken wings are now an international snack. From Vietnam to South Africa, chicken wings are delicacy all over the world.

1. Vietnamese

    Dredge the wings in flour and deep fry. Puree 1.5 cups of cilantro, 1 garlic clove and 2 tablespoons each of fish sauce, lime juice and chopped jalapenos. Toss the fried wings in 6 Tablespoons of butter and the cilantro puree.

        These Korean wings use a sauce of gojujang (Korean chili paste), soy sauce, garlic, ginger and sesame oil, as well as rice vinegar and sweet honey. They cook twice—once to cook, the second to crisp them up.

        4. Peruvian

          Peruvian chicken wings are best grilled over charcoal to bring out the lime flavor. Chili flakes, garlic, cumin and paprika enhance these wings to “finger licking good” status.

          5. Italian

Deep-fry in 350 degrees F oil until crisp and golden, about 12 minutes. Top with marinara sauce, grated mozzarella and Parmesan and broil until the cheese melts, 1 minute. Serve with warm marinara sauce.

            6. Indian

                A simple recipe of lemon juice, black pepper and herbs like rosemary and thyme make these wings delightful. Bake them at 350 degrees F for an hour and then finish them off on the grill if you want. Crumble feta cheese over them and throw them under the broiler for a minute or dip them in sour cream and herbs.

                8. America

                  Bourbon, butter, spices—these couldn’t be more American if they had apple pie coming out of them! These are beyond your standard “buffalo” wing. I don’t know if Bev of Bevcooks.com is from Buffalo, but who cares?

                  9. Thai

                    Coconut milk, chili sauce, peanut butter, ginger, brown sugar and more. Yeah. Yum. And they stay in one pan. Eat them out of the pan and you only have one dish to clean.

                    10. Modern Asian

                      David Chang of Momofuku in San Francisco is one of America’s top chefs. But his cooking can’t be described as strictly Chinese. These wings are “modern Asian.” The Octo vinaigrette that goes on them makes them amazing. You can bake or fry the wings, although Chang recommends baking.

                      11. Spain

                        Smoked paprika and garlic. Call them tapas if you will, or just call them pub grub. Either way, these are awesome, Spanish-inspired wings.

                        12. Irish

                          A pint of Guinness, a little pepper and some shallot. What else could you need, except maybe a pint for the cook? And a wok.

                          13. Chinese BBQ

                            Roast the wings and mix the sauce. How easy is that? Then mix the Hoisin, honey, butter, ginger and sesame oil. Toss the wings for an amazing dish.

                            14. Sake Wings

                                1. Visit a suburb in your city that you’ve never been to before, or somewhere you haven’t explored much.
                                2. Learn ten phrases in a new language–what about Japanese, Italian or Portuguese?
                                3. Listen to a genre of music you haven’t tried before–perhaps Jazz, Punk or Blues?
                                4. Have a picnic in your local park complete with a packed lunch and your animal friends.
                                5. Start a daily journal to write your thoughts in.
                                6. Try a new cuisine–what about French, Lebanese or Korean?
                                7. Visit your local library and borrow some books for the weekend.
                                8. Plant some flowers in your garden. If you don’t have one, try an indoor potted plant.
                                9. Visit a local museum or art gallery and view their latest exhibition.
                                10. Learn a new skill–what about sewing, gardening or cooking? You’ll be surprised what you can learn in an afternoon.
                                11. Say hello to a neighbor you don’t usually talk to.
                                12. Make a card for a friend and send it to them with a handwritten note.
                                13. Learn how to cook a new dish for dinner. We all get tired of eating the same thing, why not try making something new?
                                14. Re-read an old favorite book. Don’t leave it gathering dust on your book shelf; get it out and read it all over again.
                                15. Research the culture of a different country online–what about India, Guatemala or Sweden?
                                16. Go for a walk or bicycle ride around your neighborhood.
                                17. Watch a classic film like Casablanca, The Godfather or The Wizard of Oz.
                                18. Make a photo album of a recent holiday you took. Don’t let your memories get lost on your computer hard drive; make a special keepsake album of your trip.
                                19. Visit your local farmers markets and pick out some fresh produce. Farmers markets are full of delicious fresh fruit, veggies and more. Find your local market and take a visit.
                                20. Plan a day trip to somewhere outside your city–it might be the seaside, mountains or another city!

                                22. Make a birthday present for a friend. Handmade gifts are personal and much more special than anything you could buy from a store.
                                23. Attend a play at your local theater. Support your local theater and have a fun night out at the same time.
                                24. Volunteer with your local nature conservation society to plant some trees. Conservation societies are always looking for helping hands; do your bit and plant some trees.
                                25. Be a tourist in your own city and visit all the popular tourist sites you’ve likely never been to (don’t forget your camera!)

                                27. Put on your favorite song and dance your heart out. You might be surprised at how much fun you have!

                                29. Try out a new form of exercise like Pilates, tennis or swimming.
                                30. Organize a clothing swap with your friends. You’ll have a great time, and save some cash and the environment all at the same time!
