Countdown to Super Bowl: A World of Wings

By: Roberto Ferdman

Nothing says football like wings. The light crunch of their crispy skin, the tangy, mouth-watering sauce, the way the first bite burns your mouth because you just can't wait — it's all part of the game-day tradition.

With the Super Bowl coming up this Sunday, it's time to get those wings ready for kick off.

From deep-fried to oven baked, and spicy hot to smoky sweet, there are countless ways to serve and savor your favorite big-game eats.

For those who like them sweet, Ingrid Hoffman's Mango and Tamarind Chicken Wings are the perfect way to start:

If you're looking for something new, try Roger Mooking's Peanut Butter Chicken Wings. Think crispy fried chicken with a delicious Thai peanut sauce:

With Michael Symon's Smoked Chicken Wings, spicy Sriracha sauce brings the heat and a little touch lime balances it out:

Or get your wing fix the healthy way with Emeril's Oven-Roasted Wings, packed with garlic, thyme, cayenne and fresh lime juice:
